Over the course of the day, Cindi-Marie will help you cultivate a fundamental and conceptual understanding of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Throughout the day participants will learn about functional contexualism and how the 6 core processes of ACT (acceptance, committed action, values, self as context, cognitive defusion, being present) are utilized to boost psychological flexibility . The goal of the workshop is to help clinicians actively apply their learning over the course of the day to their daily work and life practices to assist with clinically relevant concerns and boost psychological flexibility. To help foster the learning and attending process the conference will have experiential elements and practice opportunities to help solidify and demonstrate skills and techniques. Further, since ACT is helpful in working with a large array clinically relevant concerns, case examples will be used to help illustrate content and provide additional guidance.
