Announcing Focused Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (FACT) Workshop
The Institute is pleased to announce upcoming training in basic Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT) assessment and intervention skills.
Portland, Oregon -- Behavioral health providers from across Oregon are invited for a two-day workshop to learn basic Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT) assessment and intervention skills.
Presented by Dr. Patricia Robinson and Dr. Kirk Strosahl of Mountainview Consulting Group, FACT is a brief, powerful, contextual behavioral intervention approach rooted in the three principles of acceptance, mindfulness and values based change. Workshop facilitators will provide an overview of evidence supporting brief interventions, including the reasons patients prefer them. The majority of the workshop will focus on participants' basic assessment and intervention skills that support delivery of Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, including how to conceptualize FACT interventions using the Psychological Flexibility Profile and to plan interventions using the Four Square Tool. Additionally, participants will learn about use of FACT in groups. Didactic lectures, experiential exercises, live clinical demonstrations, small group exercises, and role plays will be used to demonstrate core FACT skills. Participants will leave the session with ready-to-use tools and skills.
Clinicians are being faced with the ever growing pressures of how to optimize client outcomes with as few treatment sessions as possible; FACT is useful for clinicians who work in settings that require brief interventions, such as hospitals, jails, primary care clinics, and some mental health clinics.
