How often do you review your appointment calendar and start wondering how you’re going to, finally, help a regular client who seems to progress for a while – and then regress? Each time he/she arrives, you use the same tools and techniques you’ve used for so long – and mostly successfully – but this one client is testing your skills. Now you can begin to integrate Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into your practice – and see improved outcomes. Researched and developed by the world-renowned researcher, speaker and author Steven Hayes, Ph.D., the ACT is fast becoming the treatment approach that gets to the heart of a therapeutic relationship. Join ACT expert, trainer, and co-author with Steven Hayes of ACT in Practice, Daniel J.

Conference Objectives: • Develop a deep understanding of the six core processes of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help clients advance psychological flexibility. • Incorporate the role of psychological flexibility in ACT and list clinical techniques for increasing it. • Utilize acceptance approaches with avoidance problems to strengthen a client’s willingness to have emotions. • Implement clinical skills for helping clients with defusing from language obstacles. • Utilize exercises in therapy with clients like contacting the present moment, to aid clients to develop the flexibility to engage in the present moment and let go of their struggles. • Detect how a client’s unclarified values can lead to clinical problems in relation to assessment and treatment planning. • Integrate the ACT into different therapeutic styles and methods as an approach to managing symptoms. • Create committed action plans for clients with anxiety disorders to improve the level of functioning. • Use metaphors to undermine language-based avoidance repertoires to improve client engagement. • Implement emotional and behavioural willingness techniques with clients to reduce experiential avoidance. • Integrate ACT techniques into treatment for specific disorders including depression, anxiety, trauma and the personality disorders. • Demonstrate how ACT incorporates elements of exposure therapy to reduce experiential avoidance.
