About the Event

In this workshop, learn the basics of acceptance and commitment therapy with Todd Schmenk, an ACT practitioner, as he combines both skills and concepts into an experiential presentation, so you can start applying them right away in your practice. To make the learning process effective and engaging, you’ll first develop a personal understanding of each new concept through an experiential exercise with ready-to-use interventions. Then you will explore its theoretical underpinnings that can help you target these processes with clients.

Through this combined approach, you’ll gain a solid footing to start using ACT within your own life and in your work with clients — regardless of what therapy modalities you currently use. Many clinicians wonder whether they can use ACT with clients without changing their established therapy style completely. The good news is that, because ACT is a transdiagnostic, process-based approach to therapy, it can be integrated within the context of CBT, DBT, and many other therapy modalities.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the six processes that underlie psychological flexibility.
  2. Describe and demonstrate the ACT therapeutic relationship and its core competencies.
  3. Describe how to use the six core processes in both application and in case conceptualization.
  4. Describe and demonstrate how acceptance and diffusion work together in supporting openness to experience.
  5. Describe and demonstrate how the present moment and self-as-context assist in establishing awareness.
  6. Describe and demonstrate how values and committed action support meaningful living.
