Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is an Evidence Based Psychotherapy shown to be effective in treating a number of conditions including depression, chronic pain, and OCD. It can be delivered in individual and group formats and can be adapted to time-limited treatment or expanded to fit the needs of more complex client presentations. This three day workshop is designed to provide a strong foundational understanding of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and its theoretical underpinnings (Relational Frame Theory, Functional Contextualism) while moving clinicians from theory into application through experiential exercises, role plays, and video demonstrations. A particular emphasis will be placed on developing strong case conceptualization skills that will allow clinicians to tailor and adapt treatment to the needs of a broad range of presenting problems and populations. Specific adaptations for Veterans will be highlighted.

How can we best assist our clients in not only overcoming their symptoms and problems, but also in crafting rewarding, meaningful lives? Positive psychology, the scientific study of human flourishing, offers helpful tools for this endeavor. In this 6-hour training participants will explore foundational concepts from the field of positive psychology including flow, positive emotion, grit, capitalization, and meaning in life. With this foundation in place, we will then learn about effective positive psychology intervention practices, evaluating their evidence base and learning how to use relevant exercises in clinical practice. Participants will take part in experiential activities designed to give them a rich understanding of the use and impact of positive psychology intervention techniques.
