How often do you review your appointment calendar and start wondering how you’re going to, finally, help a regular client who seems to progress for a while – and then regress?
Each time he/she arrives, you use the same tools and techniques you’ve used for so long – and mostly successfully – but this one client is testing your skills. Now you can begin to integrate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into your practice – and see improved outcomes.
Researched and developed by world-renowned researcher, speaker and author Steven Hayes, PhD, ACT is fast becoming the treatment approach that gets to the heart of therapeutic relationship.
Watch ACT expert, trainer and co-author with Steven Hayes of ACT in Practice, Daniel J. Moran, Ph.D., BCBA-D, for this course recording where you will develop highly practical, evidence-based skills, case conceptualization techniques and powerful strategies that will improve outcomes for the following:
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Watch this intensive, engaging and transformative recording and start a new path for healing you can use with your most difficult clients.
Free mindfulness exercises are included! You will also receive copies of ACT-based psychological assessment tools and case conceptualization forms.
