Why Behavioral Science Has Failed Us and What Can Be Done About It

The developer of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and co-developer of Process-Based Therapy, Steven C. Hayes has authored nearly 50 books, including a #1 bestselling self-help book, Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life as well as A Liberated Mind: How to Pivot Toward What Matters. He’s also a popular speaker, whose TED Talks and blogs have nearly three million views. A former president of multiple psychology and behavioral science associations, he’s among the most cited psychologists in the world.

In this talk, Hayes will explain why he believes behavioral science has failed practitioners with its focus on latent disease and diagnosis—and what can be done about it. In the process, he’ll introduce a new approach to case conceptualization that redefines evidence-based therapy to be far more relevant to the actual world of clinical practice—and fairer to the people we hope to serve.
