Demystifying Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: A Mindful Approach to Value-Based Action



Despite the popularity of mindfulness, not all our clients want to embrace an Eastern philosophy and sit on a meditation cushion every day. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) offers a way to use the power of contemplative practice while promoting concrete and quantifiable change. In this workshop, you’ll focus on specific ACT strategies and tools to integrate into your practice, including how to:

  • Use ACT to increase psychological flexibility to cope with a wide variety of clinical problems—including depression, anxiety, stress, and substance abuse—by helping clients to not believe their thoughts
  • Apply the Mindful Action Plan (MAP) to help clients keep solid, values-based commitments
  • Respect cultural diversity while teaching contemplative practices
  • Seamlessly weave the ACT model into your current therapeutic practices
