Abstract: The ACT approach changes the context of the therapeutic space from one of finding solutions to creating a meaningful life through psychological flexibility. Setting up this context and goals for treatment early is vitally important for the work to unfold. This workshop will show you how to use the ACT Matrix to conduct intake sessions that leave your clients eager to start their journey toward a vibrant, connected life. You will learn how to structure effective ACT intake sessions; how to introduce integral ACT concepts in language any client can understand (even children); and how to build a collaborative treatment plan with your clients. This training is perfect for those who are newer to the ACT model, as well as those who want more confidence in structuring their practice of ACT. Specific attention will be paid to relevant and practical wording and expressions used, so that you can take what you’ve learned and put it into immediate practice.
