Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based contextual behavioral treatment approach that is
transdiagnostic and can be used across myriad mental health issues. Treatment targets include experiential avoidance
and cognitive fusion, found to be central to mood and anxiety disorders. ACT employs acceptance/mindfulness and
valued action/commitment processes to increase clients' ability to increase psychological flexibility. ACT developed
from a robust empirical base exploring basic verbal processes (i.e., Relational Frame Theory) and has resulted in close to
250 clinical trials, suggesting its efficacy across numerous psychological disorders, including anxiety, chronic pain, OCD,
depression, psychosis, smoking cessation, stress, burnout, and parenting. This clinical workshop will explore the use of
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with depression, anxiety, and related disorders. Participants can expect
some didactics, video clips, and many opportunities to practice or experience particular ACT techniques, as well as
opportunities for case consultation. Participants will be broken into small groups and pairs for experiential and role-play
