ACT is becoming an increasingly popular therapy approach for its relative versatility and rich toolset, which can be applied alongside virtually any therapeutic orientation. ACT helps place the power of healing back into the client’s own strengths and natural ability to overcome adversity.

Case studies amplify your learning when starting to incorporate Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapy into your treatment approach. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy aims to increase your client’s psychological flexibility, and this training will review the ACT model, and also explore what you should be looking for with your client that leads to their inflexibility. Bach & Moran (2008) developed a case conceptualization format called the “ACT Inflexahex” which outlines the clinically relevant issues that clients may potentially demonstrate leading to psychological inflexibility and behavioral health concerns.

Trauma, substance use, anxiety, and depressed mood issues are demonstrated in the several cases examined during this webinar. Actual cases will be reviewed, and then analyzed using the Inflexahex case conceptualization model. You will learn about the six components of psychological flexibility (acceptance, perspective taking, values, defusion, committed action, and contacting the present moment). In addition, we’ll also discuss the six components of psychological inflexibility (experiential avoidance, self-as-content, lack of values clarity, fusion, persistent inactivity and impulsivity, and dominating concepts of the past and future).
