Mindfulness-Based Therapies for Depression
Robyn Walser, PhD
May 2-3, 2014, Friday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m., Saturday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.

ACT is among several new models of behavioral treatment that emphasize acceptance of internal experience while maintaining a focus on positive behavior change related to personal values. ACT is also an evidenced based intervention that has been shown to be effective in the treatment of a number of disorders including depression, anxiety, substance use and chronic pain. Since ACT is principle-based, it is transdiagnostic in nature. Through a blend of lecture and experiential exercises, explore the theoretical rationale of ACT and learn how to flexibly implement its six core components in psychotherapy.
