This training will be a clinician-focused presentation on the background and implementation of ACT. A focus of this training will be on directly applying ACT's underlying theoretical framework (RFT) to case conceptualization and ACT's model of healing (psychological flexibility) to treatment planning. The training is delivered by an expert ACT trainer showing a session with a real client using ACT to facilitate meaningful change. This training will emphasize empirically supported practice to empower clinicians.
