Social workers, therapists and psychologists looking to learn more about ACT
Join us for a professional development workshop introducing three pillars of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): Open Up, Be Present and Do What Matters. Unlike therapeutic models concerned with pathology, dysfunctional thoughts or reduction of symptoms, ACT instead addresses psychological flexibility.
Participants will learn:
- How ACT conceptualizes behavior and mental health in terms of flexibility and inflexibility processes.
- What the terms hooked, unhooked, fusion, and defusion mean in relation to thoughts, emotions and self concept.
- Why value directed action is more meaningful than achievement as a measurement of therapeutic outcome.
Barbra Waldfogel, LCSW will use metaphors and experiential exercises to teach social workers, therapists and psychologists basic ACT skills. Clinicians using other models of treatment will learn how to incorporate thought defusion and values clarification into their clinical repertoire, and gain confidence in using ACT concepts to help clients move toward more meaningful lives.
