Acceptance and Mindfulness in Clinical Practice with Dr. Steven Hayes
Date and Time
Mon Nov 3 to Tue Nov 4, 2008 (This event is over)
Vancouver, BC, V6Z 2W3
Event DescriptionThis workshop will show how acceptance and mindfulness can empower your clinical work, drawing in particular from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), one of the primary methods in this area. This two-day workshop will discuss and demonstrate ACT processes and techniques, particularly acceptance, mindfulness, values and behavioral commitment strategies. It is designed to lower the barriers to using ACT methods. You will be taught how to recognize ACT targets in your clients and in yourself, including acceptance, defusion, present moment focus, a transcendent sense of self, values, action, and flexibility. You will learn how to generate methods of intervention that embody those principles and to integrate these with other methods you may prefer. Embodying, targeting, and using these processes provides a working model of a powerful therapeutic relationship. Video examples of how to bring these processes into your routine clinical work will be provided. The intention of the workshop is to provide clinicians with an introduction to ACT, a beginning set of skills, and with personal experiences that will direct further development of these skills.
