Join The Ohio State University College of Social Work for a free webinar introducing participants to the theoretical underpinnings, clinical model, and core interventions used in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

In addition, the six core processes targeted in ACT will be introduced, with emphasis on clinical applications to a broad range of populations. In addition to didactic instruction, this workshop will rely heavily on the use of clinical demonstration and experiential exercises to illustrate basic ACT principles and interventions.
