About the event
Join ACT expert Robyn Walser for this two-day workshop on using ACT with clients who've experienced traumatic events.
Change is an inherent part of the human experience, and many individuals seek therapeutic support when faced with challenges that impede their personal growth and well-being. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) has emerged as a powerful and flexible therapeutic approach with multiple levels of process that can be tailored to meet individual client needs.
Trauma treatment is an ideal vehicle for exploring the flexibility intrinsic to ACT. Trauma can profoundly impact individuals' lives, functioning as a barrier to growth and health. It has the power to leave lasting emotional scars that disrupt a sense of well-being. This workshop will focus on multiple levels of process and client-centered needs through the lens of trauma and its fallout.
The integration of ACT and other trauma therapies (prolonged exposure, EMDR, written exposure therapy, etc.) will be explored along with the therapeutic relationship as the key mode of delivery for the six core processes in ACT. Didactic, role-play, and experiential exercises will be used with the goal of empowering clients to navigate their trauma-related challenges while fostering self-compassion and resilience.
