Treatment of Trauma - Acceptance Commitment Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an emerging empirically-based psychological intervention of increasing interest to social work clinicians. A unique combination of acceptance, mindfulness and CBT, ACT assists clients in developing psychological flexibility while pursuing valued personal goals and outcomes. In this workshop, participants are introduced to the six core principles or ACT as they pertain to working with clients who have experienced trauma or have a diagnosis of PTSD. Activities and exercises help practitioners apply the core principles to case assessment, conceptualization, and individual treatment specific to treating trauma. Participants emerge from this interactive, hands-on seminar with a basic understanding of ACT and the capacity to integrate it into clinical practice.
