Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in the Treatment of Chronic Pain



On-Demand Webinar

Intended for:

Mental health professionals

Date / Time:

Webinar Recorded 3/22/24 – 1 Hour

Program Description:

This beginner level training is designed to enhance mental health providers’ understanding of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in the treatment of chronic pain. The training provides an overview of theoretical foundations of ACT and specific interventions for how this modality may be applied in promoting psychological flexibility among patients with chronic pain.

Participants develop proficiency in mindfulness, acceptance, and cognitive defusion techniques. Providers gain insights into how they may facilitate patients’ development of active coping strategies and foster committed action within a pain management context. The presentation also incorporates practical application via a case study.

Clinical Objectives:

  • Describe the core principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in the context of pain management
  • Analyze ACT for chronic pain as a treatment modality and compare it with other evidence-based treatments for pain management
  • Explain the six core processes (mindfulness, acceptance, cognitive defusion, self-as-context, value clarification, committed action) in treating those with chronic pain
  • Explain the emotional impact of chronic pain and integrate ACT strategies for addressing and managing pain-related emotion
  • Utilize treatment strategies and practical guidance to treat patients with chronic pain through ACT intervention
