Developing ACT Skills



Acceptance and mindfulness is having a profound impact on clinical practice. Both empirically-supported and focused on deep clinical issues, acceptance and mindfulness approaches have been shown to help clients cope with a wide variety of clinical problems including:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Substance Abuse
  • Psychotic Symptoms
  • Trauma

Many have described ACT as the next DBT!  Don't miss this opportunity to learn how Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can empower your clinical work. ACT takes the view that trying to change difficult thoughts and feelings as a means of coping can be relatively ineffective. However, new, powerful acceptance and mindfulness-based alternatives are readily available.

When combined with values--and committed action--ACT skills can quickly mobilize even some of our most stuck clients. The intention of the workshop is to provide you with the foundation of ACT and a beginning set of skills and experiences that will direct further development.
