Participants will learn the basic and advanced skills in Acceptance Commitment Therapy. Skills will begin with assessing psychological flexibility and inflexibility then move to developing skills in the 6 core therapeutic processes of ACT: contacting the present moment, defusion, acceptance, self-as-context, values identification, and committed action. This workshop will be drawn from Dr. Russ Harris’ book, ACT Made Simple so purchasing a copy ahead of time and reading the first couple of chapters will give the participant a jump-start! Case studies from SA and mental health will be utilized.
- Participants will explore and integrate the basic philosophy of ACT.
- Participants will learn, practice, and integrate the 6 core therapeutic processes and skills of ACT.
Includes an organic farm to table continental breakfast and lunch!
We look forward to seeing you there!
