Hayes Are you ready to take ACT to the next level in your practice? Have you done introductory ACT trainings, but find it difficult to implement psychological flexibility processes with your clients in a meaningful way? Do you ever get stuck in ACT? Do you sometimes feel unsure about how to use ACT techniques in a fluid and dynamic way to advance therapeutic progress? ACT 2 was specifically designed to address these issues. This training is structure a bit differently than most in order to achieve those goals. Instead of a rules-based or lecture-format seminar, ACT 2 is a “skills building intensive” that relies on round after round of targeted experiential and skills-building exercises. By seeing, doing, and getting feedback, you develop pragmatic skills you can take with you into your clinical practice the next day. The goal is for you to leave the workshop knowing that at any moment, in any session, you will be able to successfully apply ACT techniques in a fluid, flexible manner, leaving you free to move in whatever direction makes sense for your clients in any given context. How ACT 2 Works To create this unique, interactive experience, Steve has developed a comprehensive set of exercises, tools, film clips, and "real plays" (structured therapeutic interactions with attendee volunteers) that will help you become more fluent in ACT micro-skills: reading, targeting, and moving psychological flexibility processes. Building these skills will help you see psychological flexibility processes in flight and target these processes at will within the therapeutic relationship. This degree of fluency fundamentally changes ACT as an evidence-based therapy. It takes ACT from a kind of linear march into a fluid and dynamic psychotherapeutic dance that can be modified on the fly to fit the demands of your setting, client, and time restrictions. Just as you cannot learn to dance solely through verbal instructions, you cannot learn how to apply ACT in practice by listening to lectures. Instead, this training helps you learn how to identify evidence-based processes that address clinical challenges in real time. What You Will Learn: The two days of training will help you: • Detect psychological inflexibility in-flight • Conceptualize cases in terms of flexibility processes • Target psychological flexibility processes at will at any point in therapy • Stay focused on a given flexibility process or shift to another process • Respond to any statement from any corner of the model • Develop flexible and productive core intervention skills in ACT • Use these skills to create a powerful therapeutic relationship Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to: • Describe the six processes that underlie psychological flexibility • Describe how psychological flexibility processes apply to the therapeutic relationship • Describe the three overall and essential functions of the ACT clinician regarding psychological flexibility in the therapy session • Describe at least two ways of reading “flexible attention to the now” as it shows up in session • Describe at least two ways of reading self-as-context relevant processes as they show up in session • Describe at least two ways of reading values processes as they show up in session • Describe at least two ways of reading commitment processes as they show up in session • Describe at least two ways of reading defusion processes as they show up in session • Describe at least two ways of reading acceptance processes as they show up in session • Describe at least one generally useful method of opening the door to acceptance issues in session • Describe at least one generally useful method of opening the door to defusion issues in session • Describe at least one generally useful method of opening the door to self-as-context issues in session • Describe the two main dimensions in the Matrix model of psychological flexibility
