    About the Workshop:

    Join ACT co-founder Steven Hayes, Ph.D., for this one-of-a-kind workshop designed to establish a foundational understanding of the Psychological Flexibility Model, a beginning set of skills in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and beginning knowledge of Relational Frame Theory (RFT). Over the two days, you will learn:
    1) An experiential understanding of the six basic processes of ACT’s Psychological Flexibility Model:
    a. Flexible contact with the present moment
    b. Cognitive Defusion
    c. Acceptance
    d. Self-as-context
    e. Values
    f. Committee action
    2) The relationship between the six basic processes and Relational Frame Theory (RFT).
    3) How to apply the Psychological Flexibility Model to case conceptualization and treatment planning.
    4) Practical skills for meeting clients where they are and fostering their willingness and openness to change.
    5) Ways to assess, observe, and influence client processes in session.


    This presentation is intended for psychologists, other licensed mental health providers, and graduate students of psychology.
