Course Description :
Participate in this on-demand activity to learn and apply skills in acceptance-based behavioral therapies (ABBT). This includes dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy.
ABBT is effective in both reducing symptoms and promoting quality of life in a wide range of clinical conditions, including general anxiety disorder (GAD). That makes this webinar ideal for professionals and practice settings across mental health, primary care, nursing, social work, psychology, and more.
Our faculty outline an evidence-based ABBT model for understanding GAD. You review clinical strategies to target the central elements of this model, mindfulness exercises, strategies to decrease experiential avoidance, methods to clarify values and promote valued action, and much more.
This one-hour webinar is available on-demand.
At the end of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
• Conceptualize GAD using the ABBT model
• Apply mindfulness and other strategies that can be used to decrease experiential avoidance
• Describe strategies to clarify values and promote valued action
