ACT is considered a "third wave" CBT theory. It contains hard science via behaviorism, while also incorporating the use of mindfulness and present moment experience to support clients in developing psychological flexibility. ACT is an evidence-based approach, and shows significant benefit for a range of mental health issues, including substance use, anxiety, OCD, depression, and borderline personality disorder.
This workshop will provide an introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, covering its philosophy, approach, and basis for interventions. It will include both lecture and active practice. Participants will walk away with a clear understanding of ACT theory and its application as well as with practical ACT tools and skills.
