Part I: An Introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)



Description:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a behavioral therapy incorporating values-guided and mindful action. An individual participating in ACT identifies their values, desires, and aspirations; they then use that information to motivate behavioral change. Individuals fully engage in their experiences and remain open to creating a full, meaningful life while accepting the challenges one inevitably encounters in life. During this webinar Dr. Waford will provide an overview of ACT, including the six main tenets of the practice and the process and strategies to use these tenets with clients.
