Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT): The Basics and Beyond
Edwin W. Monroe AHEC Conference Center, Greenville, NC


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique, evidence-based intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. “Psychological flexibility” refers to behaving flexibly and effectively given one’s values and what the environment affords, and in the face of difficult thoughts, feelings and bodily sensations. While ACT builds upon well-established cognitive -behavioral treatments, it engages issues and interventions that have often been associated with existential and humanistic psychological traditions. The evidence for ACT is rapidly expanding. Recent studies have demonstrated that ACT is useful for treating a wide variety of difficulties, including traditionally conceived clinical conditions such as depression, anxiety, chronic stress, substance abuse, and even psychosis, as well as in the treatment of individuals with medical conditions such as terminal cancer, chronic pain and type 2 diabetes. Our work has demonstrated ACT’s utility with eating disorders, including difficult to treat cases of anorexia nervosa and eating disturbances in the context of type 1 diabetes. In addition, ACT’s benefits appear to be as important for the clinician as they are for clients. Empirical data have shown that ACT can significantly improve therapist burnout. This workshop is intended for all therapists interested in ACT as well as acceptance and mindfulness-oriented approaches more generally, regardless of their level of familiarity with the material. Case demonstrations and experiential exercises will be used to illustrate the application of ACT interventions to complex clinical cases.
