Evidence-based therapy is moving in a process-based direction. In this workshop I will introduce Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a form of process-based therapy that can be build around an extended evolutionary model and applied to a wide range of human concerns.


Educational Objectives:

  1. Describe the six elements of a psychological flexibility model.
  2. Give a clinical example of each of the six psychological flexibility processes.
  3. Describe how the psychological flexibility model links conceptually to a multi-dimensional, multi-level extended evolutionary meta-model.
