ACT and Values: Inspiring Strength and Growth with New Ways to ACT

Feb 29, 2024 | 9:30am - 11:00am (MST)
Virtual
1.5 CE Hours

Presented by

There is an emerging emphasis in clinical psychology on developing transdiagnostic models and interventions that apply to a range of disorders. Psychological Flexibility-Based Interventions, the transdiagnostic processes that inform Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, target processes of change and increase the ability of the individual to behave and respond in ways that help move them into a life of vitality. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) contains six core behavioral processes for change that can be utilized by both practitioner and client. This session will highlight how clinicians can use the ACT model and language to synthesize and target psychological flexibility-based interventions in their current practice.

 

The target audience for this continuing education program is mental health providers and clinicians working with individuals with mental health diagnoses. Materials are appropriate for learners with an introductory level of understanding about mental health concerns. 

 

Educational Objectives: 

Following this presentation, participants will be able to…

  • Describe two ways psychological inflexibility contributes to a range of disorders.  
  • Identify the ACT core processes and barriers that can arise
  • Identify helpful metaphors and techniques that can be utilized in individual and family therapy settings.
