Introduction to the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Framework

About this Event:

Join us for the first session in our 4-part series "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): From Introduction to Applied Practice." Throughout the series, the instructor will introduce participants to the tenets of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and guide them from the introductory stage to applied practice with different mental health conditions and scenarios. Participants will learn and practice strategies from each tenet of ACT ranging from brief interventions to more in-depth processes. Case examples will be used throughout, and participants will have the opportunity to ask the instructor questions as well as practice different strategies and processes with guided prompts.

Session 1: Introduction to the ACT framework 

The first session will introduce the complete ACT framework and ACT hexaflex and provide an overarching discussion of the goals of this psychotherapy orientation. Similarities and differences with other orientations will also be discussed to contextualize the ACT perspective. This session will also introduce the area of Creative Hopelessness and begin discussion around case conceptualization. Resources for ongoing learning will also be discussed.
