This ongoing study group for health care and behavioral health professionals will focus on developing proficiency with acceptance & commitment therapy (ACT). This group is for folks who have already done at least one introductory workshop on ACT and perhaps some self-study and are eager to deepen their skills.

Goals of the group: Participants will learn to conceptualize cases from an ACT perspective, study the six ACT core processes, practice practical skills, recommend and share readings, track developments in ACT and RFT research, and support one another as they add ACT skills to their existing approaches to treatment. In contrast to some other formats (e.g., workshops or a peer consultation group), I hope to encourage members to continually assess their proficiency and confidence with ACT skills and processes and to share this process with the group. Between meetings, I will organize ways to address members' questions and concerns and help to move folks forward. Subsequent meetings will address members' questions and struggles understanding and applying ACT concepts and continually nudge folks toward greater competence with ACT.
