Hybrid event – Scott Conference Center (Omaha) and via zoom

Acceptance and commitment therapy employs a variety of verbal and experiential processes and techniques to assist clients in making life-enhancing choices based on personally held values. The behavioral processes implemented in ACT may be learned and understood at many levels, yet they may also remain challenging to implement in a flexible, consistent, and effective fashion. Multiple levels of process are present in any therapy, including intervention processes. Moving beyond simple technique and into a fluid ACT intervention requires attending to intrapersonal, interpersonal, and overarching and ongoing processes in the context of the therapy.

This workshop will be an intermediate to advanced training focusing on applying ACT to a broad range of issues from four levels of process (i.e. six core processes, interpersonal, intrapersonal, overarching).

• It will include role-plays and guided skills development.

• Participants will engage in exercises designed to refine and develop their ACT process skills attuning to the relationship and therapeutic stance.

• Didactics and discussion will be oriented to increasing flexibility in the use of the core processes and consistent application of the model.
