ACCEPTANCE & COMMITMENT THERAPY FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE, EATING DISORDERS, ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, SELF-INJURY, PTSD, PSYCHOSIS, AND MORE – SYDNEY KROLL

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique and innovative approach that helps clients to fundamentally change their relationship with their thoughts and feelings; to live in the present moment; to stop reacting and start responding; and to allow their values to guide them in a more rich and meaningful life. In ACT, clients utilize skills in mindfulness to accept the painful aspects of their lives while at the same time reducing the experiential avoidance that causes suffering. In other words, “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” Move your clients toward focusing on identifying what matters in their lives and taking actions in service of those values.

In this recording Sydney Kroll, PsyD, shares an introduction to the research and theory behind ACT so you can clearly articulate the empirical evidence for this model. Experiential and engaging activities are used throughout the course to illustrate specific techniques and concepts. Dr. Kroll shows you how to apply these strategies to virtually any client population. Walk away with the skills and tangible resources to use immediately in your practice for better client outcomes and a greater sense of purpose as a clinician.
