Burnout and compassion fatigue are common obstacles among behavioral health care workers that can impact both quality of care and quality of life for those in the field. Two interventions, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy may offer a pathway to reliably reducing burnout and increasing compassion.

ACT is a transdiagnostic evidence-based treatment that is beneficial in helping individuals cope with a wide variety of clinical concerns including anxiety, depression, chronic pain, OCD, substance misuse, stress, sleep issues, relationship distress, and even therapist burnout. This lecture will outline the core principles of ACT, describe how to personally apply ACT to alleviate burnout as mental health professionals, and utilize in vivo practice to familiarize participants with the experiential nature of the therapy.

Further, research has shown that IFS therapy is another effective intervention for reducing a range of clinical conditions and their sequelae. This lecture will describe the assumptions of IFS theory, the view of the therapeutic relationship according to IFS, and outline some of the skills and techniques that are unique to IFS for self-care through experiential practice.
