Join us for this 4-day ACT BootCamp® for Behavior Analysts workshop in sunny Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, with Steven C. Hayes, Ruth Anne Rehfeldt, Tom Szabo and Jonathan Tarbox. This workshop is designed to provide behavior analysts a foundational understanding of acceptance and commitment training (ACT). ACT began over three decades ago as a behavior analytic approach to intervention in verbally-able populations who might need excessive rule-governed behavior to be diminished in order to better contact and be regulated by direct contingencies. Its conceptual and empirical basis has strengthened considerably since 1982, and it is now fully entering into the armamentarium of BCBAs in areas such as the following:

  • Parent training
  • Staff management and development
  • Organizational work
  • Work with developmentally delayed populations and the chronically mentally ill
  • Educational settings with special needs students

ACT is a method for changing behavior by increasing psychological flexibility, meaning larger patterns of values-based behavior that fit the current context and are resistant to needless disruption by private events. Increasing research (including research published in behavior analytic journals) has shown that psychological flexibility is a key component in altering behavior across a wide variety of populations.
