For the last few years, if you mention you’re interested in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), the next question you’re likely to hear is, “Have you been to BootCamp?” This essential workshop led by Robyn Walser, PhD, Kelly Wilson, PhD, and Steven C. Hayes, PhD, has been the foundation of ACT training for thousands of practitioners like you. Whether you’re hearing about ACT for the first time or already have formal training, this workshop can take your skills to the next level.

The workshop will fully cover the basics of the ACT model and its delivery:

  • Psychological flexibility
  • The six core processes
  • Skills for observing and moving the processes flexibly in session

The workshop will also work the model from the bottom up, presenting the philosophical and theoretical roots of ACT in clear, fun, and practical way. This radical shift in thinking is directly relevant to the work you do every day, and it’s the main reason for ACT’s tremendous appeal as a psychotherapy.

AT BootCamp, you’ll learn the foundations of the psychological flexibility model, and develop a beginning set of skills in ACT. You’ll engage with client-therapist role plays, practice ACT techniques and tools, and get real-time feedback. Get hands-on, guided practice recognizing psychological inflexibility in clients, and learn to fluidly respond from all points on the hexaflex. Come to BootCamp to learn how ACT can reinvigorate your therapeutic relationship with clients.

For total ACT immersion, attend evening sessions to learn from ACT experts to get your questions answered and build community.
