Apply­ing Accep­tance and Com­mit­ment Ther­a­py — Tak­ing ACT Con­cepts from Con­cep­tu­al­iza­tion to Implementation

Men­tal Health Pro­fes­sion­als, join KYC’s Clin­i­cal Train­ing Com­mit­tee for a vir­tu­al train­ing event on Accep­tance and Com­mit­ment Ther­a­py (ACT).

This train­ing is designed to help clin­i­cians enhance their abil­i­ty to apply an ACT approach in their work with indi­vid­ual ther­a­py clients. Par­tic­i­pants will review the core con­cepts of ACT and learn about ways to take these skills from ini­tial con­cep­tu­al­iza­tion to clin­i­cal imple­men­ta­tion. All lev­els of expe­ri­ence are wel­come and no pri­or expe­ri­ence with ACT is need­ed; the train­ing is tai­lored to meet the needs of men­tal health pro­fes­sion­als from novice/​beginner to inter­me­di­ate lev­el under­stand­ing of ACT.
