When Clients Get Stuck: Incorporating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
May 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$25.00 - $55.00
Presenter: Richard Sears, PsyD., MBA, ABPP
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is an evidence-based approach that can incorporate any other evidence-based intervention. Acceptance processes, which include mindfulness, help clients let go of struggles with their own internal experiences with strong thoughts and feelings. Commitment processes help clients clarify and move toward their own values in the service of living a more meaningful life. Through lecture, case examples, and discussion, Richard Sears will discuss the six core processes of ACT and how to incorporate these evidence-based principles for a variety of clinical presentations, including anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT: Two hours of CE credit will be awarded to psychologists. [Provider # 311038166]
