The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) is offering a two-day evidence-based workshop on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for behavioral health providers working with Service members and veterans. The workshop will be held online via Zoom, 3-4 November 2021, 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Eastern. Space in this event is limited and registration will close when capacity is reached, even if this is before the final registration deadline.
Registration for the course is $45 and comes with 14 CEs. (Please note the refund policy at the bottom of the page.)
Also, a functioning microphone is MANDATORY to attend, in order to participate in the role-play sessions. Headphones are also HIGHLY recommended to provide the optimal experience.
This workshop will be highly experiential with a focus on helping participants practice and build skills that they can readily integrate into their work with military clients. It’s designed to give participants a strong foundation in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) theory and practice. The workshop is ideal for beginning practitioners new to the model as well as those already practicing ACT at an intermediate level who want to broaden their repertoire.
Over the course of two days, we will work with participants to assess psychological problems using the Psychological Flexibility model, learn and practice skills relevant to each of the six core psychological flexibility processes, use the ACT skills to help clients differentiate between ineffective and meaningful actions, and to identify and address key indicators of psychological inflexibility.
In addition, the training will explore the ways in which language and metaphor influence behavior and can be used in therapy to help change behavior. We will use experiential exercises, small group work and dyad work to encourage participants to practice and enhance new skills.
System Requirements: This course will be presented via Zoom teleconferencing software. Participants will not have to install any additional programs on their computer to take part. However, a web browser is necessary. (Mac users are recommended to use the Chrome or Firefox browsers to minimize tech issues).
