ACT BootCamp® is more than just a long workshop. This four-day event is a distillation of everything that's so exciting about acceptance and commitment therapy. Over this long weekend, you can expect to:
BootCamp is an ideal introduction to the ACT model for complete beginners. There is no experience necessary to make the most of this workshop. However, even very experienced ACT therapists will find that the entire workshop will enrich and deepen their practice. And everyone, regardless of level, will benefit tremendously from the atmosphere of community and connection that only this event can generate.
As important as the content of the workshop is the format: not only will these four days give you a chance to connect with a large local network of like-minded clinicians, you'll have a chance to form relationships with long-time members of the ACT community. In our afternoon structured discussion sections, you can explore your own questions and ideas in smaller groups with our BootCamp discussion facilitators, a group of energetic, friendly, and knowledgeable ACT therapists who have one goal: to help you make this most of your training experience.
5:30 pm - 7:15 pm (Optional but recommended)
Discussion Facilitators: Matt Boone, Tim Gordon, Emily Sandoz, and Tom Szabo
D.J. Moran will help you develop a solid foundation in the
principles and applications of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. D.J.
will outline how you can increase psychological flexibility with your
clients (and even yourself) with the ACT components of mindfulness,
values authorship, perspective-taking, defusion, acceptance, and
committed action. D.J. is coauthored ACT in Practice and is a
Recognized ACT Trainer who taught Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to
audiences on six continents.
Kelly G. Wilson, PhD, will walk you through how to facilitate mindful
interviewing with values content, painful content, the role of
perspective taking, and using shifts in perspective taking.
Using a comprehensive set of exercises, tools, and film clips, Steve Hayes
will help you become fluent in ACT micro-skills: reading, targeting, and
moving psychological flexibility processes. Learn to catch
psychological flexibility processes in flight, and target these
processes at will within the therapeutic relationship. After this day of
training, you'll be able at any moment, in any session, to go in any
flexibility direction you wish.
ACT skills may be learned and understood at many levels, yet, they may
also remain challenging to implement in a flexible, consistent, and
effective fashion. Robyn Walser will focus on applying ACT to a broad
range of issues and will including role plays guided skills development
exercises designed to refine and develop facility with ACT processes and
didactics and discussion will be oriented to increasing flexibility in
the use of the core processes and consistent application of the model.
