V401/V501 Fostering Client Flexibility

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a Process of Change

Evidence-based therapy is changing. Where once treatment favored protocols for certain syndromes, now, in a new era of process-based therapy, the focus has turned to the needs, strengths, and cultural background of clients—and the processes that result in an uplifting relationship between them and their practitioner. When therapists can identify these processes, or underlying mechanisms, they’re better equipped to help clients successfully reach their goals. In this paradigm-shifting workshop, you’ll discover:

  • The key features of process-based therapy
  • How to detect and target processes of change in your client
  • What a case conceptualization based on processes looks like
  • How to implement ACT’s psychological flexibility as a process of change

Steven Hayes, PhD, is a professor of psychology in the behavior analysis program at the University of Nevada. The author of 46 books and countless articles, his work on ACT has made it one of the most widely used interventions of the last 20 years. He’s the author of the bestselling book, Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life. His new book is A Liberated Mind.
