This season we will offer 12 webinars that build on the foundation we developed in the 2016 season. They will dive deep into how ACT can be used to treat specific conditions, provide you with advanced training in using the Matrix, and introduce you to some other therapeutic modalities including FAP and CFT that can help build out your practice even more.
Normally, each webinar costs $45—a bargain to be sure. However, if you buy our season pass for Spring 2017—which is only available until December 31—we will give you access to the entire 12-webinar series we are producing this season for only $325.
That’s a savings of $215.
As was the case for the last season, we have some technical constraints that only allow us to host 100 participants in a webinar at one time.
Which is why we are only offering the season pass for a limited time.
The 2016 pass was a runaway success, so if you want to make sure you have access to the next season, be sure to register now
Just like last season, we are offering CE credits for every hour of the live trainings you attend.
And, our season pass holders get access to the entire archive of webinars produced this season at any time.
Understand, you ONLY receive CE credits when you attend live, but you can go back and review the material, listen in again, and check out any you couldn’t attend live whenever you like.
This is a unique opportunity to continue enhancing your ACT practice from the comfort of your own office or living room, but it is only available for a limited time.
So make sure you register now.
Here’s what you’ll get access to when you do…

Do you work with clients who experience distressing psychosis? Wondering how ACT—and mindfulness in general—can help? Want to help your clients more effectively manage distressing symptoms so they can lead full, rich and meaningful lives? In this workshop, Joe will introduce the core skills and knowledge to help people recover from psychosis, using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Psychosis (ACTp). ACTp is a powerful behavioral approach that helps people disentangle from difficult thoughts, feelings or distressing experiences with acceptance and mindfulness in order to engage in behaviors that are guided by personal values.

This webinar is designed to help you understand the roots of childhood anxiety and learn how to treat it using the ACT model. You will discover how you can describe the origins of child behavioral and emotional issues using ACT theory, place ACT within the context of normal cognitive and social development with emphasis on parent-child transactions, and present ACT-consistent strategies and techniques for treating childhood behavioral and emotional problems with special emphasis on the parent-child dyad.

During this presentation, Mary will describe the current state of evidence for ACT in the treatment of anxiety and anxiety-related disorders, discuss how you can implement ACT as a process-based approach in the treatment of anxiety and anxiety related disorders, and how to apply novel techniques including the use of metaphors and mindfulness activities to the common core processes in the ACT model.

ACT teaches clients to flexibly contact what they fear instead of unnecessarily avoiding and escaping it. It’s a form of exposure therapy in some ways. However, if you come from outside the cognitive behavioral tradition, it's unlikely that you've had any training in exposure. What exactly is exposure, and how do you do it? Even if you've been trained in traditional CBT, studies suggest you might be reluctant to use exposure techniques even when they are called for. This webinar will offer an introduction to exposure therapy from both the ACT and traditional CBT perspectives, noticing their commonalities and differences. Formal exposure techniques for feared sensations (interoceptive exposure), avoided places and situations (in vivo exposure), and troubling thoughts and memories (imaginal exposure) will be discussed and tied conceptually to the kind of informal exposure that is built-in to ACT.
Date: April 20, 2017, 1pm EDT
This webinar will teach you how to conduct an ACT consistent assessment with adolescents, focusing on specific markers that are unique to the challenges of treating adolescent populations with ACT. You will discover how to formulate an ACT consistent treatment plan with specific implications for treating adolescent populations, and discriminate and articulate treatment design and the planning of individual and group treatment with adolescents.
Date: May 9, 2017, 1pm EDT
During this webinar, participants will explore how the science of compassion can be used to enhance and expand our clinical work, using a Compassion-Focused-ACT (CFACT) approach. Recent advances in psychological research, theory and practice have suggested that compassion is a significant, active process in psychotherapy effectiveness and personal growth. This webinar is specifically designed to help ACT and other behavior therapy practitioners deepen their understanding and practice of compassion focused psychotherapy. Participants will learn a new evolutionary model of compassionate flexibility, that is grounded in Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), ACT, and elements of Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP). Direct, experiential exercises, including compassion focused imagery practices, will invite participants into contact with their compassionate minds.
Date: May 23, 2017, 1pm EDT
If you have clients who have tried to lose weight before and struggled to take it off or keep it off, beat themselves up repeatedly, or just struggled to find meaning and vitality in the healthy habits they were trying to build, there is an alternative. This workshop presents a different path to weight loss, and more healthy living in general, through behavior change techniques from ACT. You will learn techniques to help your clients change their habits humanely, with a focus on getting in touch with how being healthy fits broadly into a life worth living. These techniques are based on a growing body of literature that has successfully used ACT methods to support weight loss, healthier diet, and increased physical activity.
And don’t forget, each webinar includes a live Q&A session where you can get your most important questions answered by these talented and knowledgeable trainers.
This season pass offer won’t last for long—it expires December 31st or when we sell out the 100 seats we have available. So ACT now. Register now, and secure your spot for this unique training opportunity.
*Please note that complete attendance is necessary at each of the required training sessions for continuing education certification to be awarded for that session.
No partial CE will be awarded for any session.
