Essentials of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Adolescents
June 7, 2019 @ 9:30 AM - 4:30 PM
ACT (pronounced as the word “act”, not as the letters A-C-T) is an empirically based model of psychotherapy incorporating mindfulness and behavioral interventions. This training will introduce participants to ACT, emphasizing its application to adolescents. Through discussion, experiential exercises, and role plays, we will review the six core processes of psychological flexibility. We will share practical examples of mindfulness skills and how adolescents can use them to handle painful inner experiences more effectively.
