Workshop Description: In this advanced workshop we will broadly explore the core components of ACT with a specific focus on present moment processes and the therapeutic relationship. We will also focus on the therapy processes that trigger each of the six components. We will address how therapists can flexibly adopt the six ACT processes including work that is linked to personal psychological experience in session. Our focus will include a description of how the most basic part of the ACT therapeutic stance naturally flows from a therapist’s application of the ACT model of language and human functioning to their own professional and personal life as well as that of their clients. Special topics of focus will include compassion and forgiveness. Participants will engage in a number of ACT based activities, including mindfulness, experiential exercises and group activities. Additionally, role-plays with feedback and from therapist and client will be presented. The workshop will provide therapists with group and personal experiences that will allow further development of their ACT skills. We will have a little fun too!
