About This Event
In this 5-day training, mental health professionals learn an empowering set of solutions to the problem of human suffering.
Acceptance and mindfulness-based practices are rapidly making their way into mental health care, medicine, and society. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a newer evidence-based approach that offers empowering solutions to the problem of human suffering and its alleviation.
Led by a dynamic husband and wife team, we explore ACT as a model and intervention technology. Through lectures, live and video demonstrations, and practical experiential exercises, we learn dynamic skills and strategies to help our clients live well, richly, and meaningfully, without first having to control or eliminate sources of emotional and psychological pain. We also learn how ACT can be integrated effectively into mental health practice.
ACT seeks to transform the root sources of human suffering by balancing mindfulness and acceptance processes with commitment and behavior change in the service of living a more vital life. ACT has been applied successfully to many forms of human suffering and can be flexibly and fluidly applied in a variety of mental health settings.
All levels of mental health professionals, including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, are welcome. Familiarity with ACT is not required.
