2 CEUs for social workers & counselors

This is an intermediate workshop on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a behavioral therapy in which individuals learn strategies to increase psychological flexibility or learning to be aware of the present moment and accepting of the pain that comes into our lives while continuing to pursue what we value. The six processes of psychological flexibility are acceptance, defusion, contact with the present moment, self as context, values, and committed action. Clinicians can use the processes to help clients move toward their treatment goals. ACT may be used on a variety of populations and in a wide array of settings. Children and adolescents, adults, and the elderly could all benefit from ACT interventions. ACT can be used to treat most mental health issues, as well as physical health issues like chronic pain, diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.
