This workshop will be highly experiential with a focus on helping participants practice and build skills that they can readily integrate into their work. It’s designed to give participants a strong foundation in ACT theory and practice. The workshop is ideal for beginning practitioners new to the model as well as those already practicing ACT at an intermediate level who want to broaden their repertoire.  Over the course of two days, we will work with participants to assess psychological problems using the ACT model, identify and address experiential avoidance and inflexible behavior patterns, learn and practice skills related to the core process of ACT, identify and use metaphors and exercises relevant to each of the 6 core processes, and use the ACT model to help clients differentiate between ineffective and meaningful actions. In addition, the training will explore the ways in which language and metaphor influence behavior and can be used in therapy to help change behavior. We will create a safe space in which to participate in experiential exercises, small group work and dyad work to encourage attendees to practice and enhance new skills.
