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?”
Led by ACT’s cofounders, Steven C. Hayes, Kelly Wilson, and Robyn Walser, 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 workshop will fully cover the basics of the ACT model and
its delivery. You will learn the ins and outs of core ACT concepts such as:
• 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 a clear, fun, and practical way. ACT’s 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.
At ACT BootCamp, you’ll learn the foundations of the psychological flexibility model, and develop a beginning set of skills in ACT. You’ll engage with client-therapist role-plays, practice ACT techniques and tools, and get real-time feedback. Over four intensive days, you will get hands-on, guided practice recognizing psychological inflexibility in clients, and learn to fluidly respond from all points on the hexaflex. Come to ACT BootCamp to learn how ACT can reinvigorate your therapeutic relationship with clients.
