Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in Mental Health Practice
September 29 - October 4$785 – $2000
Discover Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) in this training with Drs. John P. Forsyth and Jamie R. Forsyth.
Acceptance and mindfulness-based practices are rapidly making their way into mental health care, medicine, and society. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a newer evidence-based approach that offers empowering solutions to the problem of human suffering.
ACT seeks to transform the root sources of human suffering by balancing mindfulness and acceptance processes with commitment and behavior change in the service of living a more vital life. Through lectures, live and video demonstrations, and practical experiential exercises, we learn skills and strategies to help our clients live well and meaningfully, without first having to control or eliminate sources of emotional and psychological pain. We also learn how ACT can be integrated effectively into mental health practice.
All mental health professionals, including graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, are welcome. Familiarity with ACT is not required.
CE/CMEs: CE and CME credits are available and included in the tuition. However, you must register for CE/CMEs and it is required that you attend all sessions for CE/CME certification.
