In The Thriving Adolescent, Louise Hayes, PhD, and Joseph Ciarrochi, PhD, present a new developmental model of acceptance and commitment therapy ACT) when working with adolescents, which they have named DNA-v. The DNA-v model integrates ACT, positive psychology, evolution science, and behavioral theory, making it a wholly contextual behavioral science approach which brings a truly developmental focus to your work with young adults, with a focus on flexibility and growth.

This online course offers a unique opportunity to practice the DNA-v model, from case conceptualization to treatment planning, using clients as practical guides in each of the 6 sessions. Dr. Hayes will demonstrate therapy using client examples submitted by participants in the course (up to 3 examples). The course will include peer consultation, giving participants the opportunity to ask specific questions about their cases. Each of the biweekly sessions will have three components:

  1. Therapy demonstration. This demonstration will occur either live with Dr. Hayes and a cohort participant, or pre-recorded using teenagers.
  2. Case discussion, followed by treatment planning and demos of the DNA-v model. Will also involve group some consultation on attendees’ clients.
  3. Real-time application. Participants will be expected to try the techniques with their clients and discuss their experiences in an online group forum in between sessions.

This online training is perfect for you if you work with adolescents and are either actively using the DNA-v model or have a working knowledge of the DNA-v model. Together with a small group of like-minded professionals, you will deepen your knowledge of ACT and its application to adolescents and their families. This is a unique opportunity to work intimately with Louise Hayes, the co-founder of the DNA-v model, in a small group setting that will supercharge your skills and efficacy with your work with teens.

This training is worth 12 CE credit hours if attended live (12 CPD points for Clinical Psychology and Australian health practitioners). While we can only provide CE to those who are present – i.e. logged in – for live presentation(s), all Praxis webinars are recorded for later viewing. Registrants may then access these recordings at any time for up to six months from the conclusion of the training to which they pertain.
