Description:
This workshop will explain ACT in a very clear, concise, user-friendly manner.  It will teach BCBAs and BCaBAs about an empirically-supported behavior change strategy based on modern behavior analysis and relational frame theory.  This will be a practical training on how to use ACT procedures to help people spend less time struggling with private events and more time engaging in behavior that accomplishes important measurable outcomes. Stimulus equivalence and RFT will be incorporated into the discussions. Discussion of how "mindfulness" is related to stimulus control and verbal behavior will also be incorporated, as well as teaching "mindful action."
