For the last few years, if you mention you’re interested in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), the next question you’re likely to hear is, “Have you been to BootCamp?” This essential workshop has been the foundation of ACT training for thousands of practitioners like you. Whether you’re hearing about ACT for the first time or already have formal training, this workshop can take your skills to the next level.
The focus of the 2017 BootCamps is Do-More-with-What-You-Have. The workshop will fully cover the basics of the ACT model and its delivery:
- Psychological flexibility
- The six core processes
- Skills for observing and moving the processes flexibly in session
The workshop will also work the model from the bottom up, presenting the philosophical and theoretical roots of ACT in clear, fun, and practical way. This is not geeky stuff! This radical shift in thinking is directly relevant to the work you do every day, and it’s the main reason for ACT’s tremendous appeal as a psychotherapy. From this flexible perspective, it’s very easy to see how doing the work you already do from an ACT perspective can reinvigorate and transform your practice. Whatever your background and orientation—CBT, DBT, family systems, psychodynamic therapy, existential-humanistic therapy—ACTs unique functional-contextual perspective can really make a difference in the lives of the people you serve.
