Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, or “ACT”, is an empirically-based, behavioral intervention and philosophy that has a foundation based in contemplative practices. ACT clinicians work within a philosophical approach to evoking a client’s values as a way of creating a meaningful, valuable pathway towards a better life. ACT has also shown effectiveness in treating substance abuse related behaviors and issues of addiction. ACT clinicians utilize a range of protocols to create an environment focused on acceptance, defusion from internal experiences related to the addiction, with an emphasis on committed action to the client’s values.
This workshop is approved for 3 CEUs for Oklahoma Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers (provider number 20190088), and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselors (specific, provider number 20190018)
