This webinar is for clinicians with no or little exposure to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), or for those that would like a refresher on the six core processes of the ACT model. We will discuss ways to incorporate ACT into your treatment toolbox, regardless of which mode of therapy you use.
The goal of this training is to introduce you to the key aspects of ACT and give you real world applications of this modality. This training, like ACT itself, is going to involve multiple experiential exercises, along with didactic learning, lecture, and reflective practice. The exercises work best when we “real play” rather than roll play. I hope to create an environment where everyone feels safe to explore their own “psychologically inflexible” ways they respond to the world.

We are excited to get to know each of you and hope you learn to love ACT as much as we have. We also hope it inspires you to seek out more training. ACT is such a powerful tool and is unlike any other modality, it has such an elegant underpinning of theory and practice, along with a very pragmatic approach to helping people find a new relationship to human suffering.
