  • Integrate an ACT perspective into your current practice
  • Simplify, understand and implement difficult ACT concepts
  • Case examples, video clips and role play

Integrating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy into your practice offers a new way for you to achieve positive therapeutic outcomes with difficult-to-treat clients.

Join experienced ACT presenter Douglas Fogel, Psy.D., as he delivers an exercise and technique-heavy course that will give you the tools needed to more effectively treat clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, and the personality disorders.

Dr. Fogel will teach you the main concepts of ACT, including mindfulness, acceptance, and defusion--demonstrating how these create greater psychological flexibility. Discover a variety of techniques for helping clients who are struggling to make difficult behavior changes due to the presence of painful thoughts, feelings and memories. You will learn how to effectively use metaphors, custom techniques and experiential exercises to help your clients identify their values and translate them into behavior goals.

Through case examples, video clips, and role-play you will be able to integrate ACT techniques and skills in your practice tomorrow!
