Day 1 of the workshop will introduce ACT, both as an approach and set of intervention strategies, as applied to all the major anxiety disorders. This workshop will use a combination of didactic and experiential activities and will be intensely practical. Participants will be encouraged (but never forced or coerced) to engage the material at a personal level, as it applies to their own lives, and then also in the context of their clinical work. Worksheets and other practical tools will be provided. Read more
