Wednesday, July 15, 2020 from 8:45 am - 4:30 pm

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based contextually focused form of cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy that uses mindfulness and behavioral activation to increase clients' psychological flexibility and engage in values-based, positive behaviors while experiencing difficult thoughts, emotions, or sensations. This course focuses on the origin, theory, components, research, and application of foundation skills of ACT to help adults and adolescents from diverse populations and a variety of life problems organize their lives around what matters to them, rather than avoidance of unwanted experiences, emotions, thoughts, and body sensations. Students will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to utilize this method appropriately and effectively with diverse client populations and problems.

This course will consist of didactic lecture/presentation and experiential exercises to practice/understand application of ACT skills.

Learning Objectives: 

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Summarize the evidence-based research support for ACT;
  • Integrate the principles of ACT into therapeutic relationships and treatment practice;
  • Apply the concepts of creative hopelessness, willingness, acceptance, contact with the present moment, values, committed action, cognitive defusion, self-as-context, and self-as-process;
  • Describe the application and meaning of “the Question”;
  • Express ACT components through experiences and metaphors;
  • Use an ACT approach and perspective with adults and/or adolescent clients in mental health or substance abuse individual or group treatment.

Research: Select research and meta-analyses on ACT can be found at Google Scholar http://bit.ly/2UzCQBf 

Target Audience: social workers, mental health practitioners, creative arts therapists, marriage and facility therapists, psychologists, and other interested individuals
