Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a mindfulness based behavior therapy co-founded in 1999. ACT has demonstrated efficacy for treatment of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, pain and transdiagnostic populations (Gloster et al, 2020; Morgan et al, 2021) and is considered an empirically supported treatment by several institutions including the American Psychological Association (APA) and the Veterans Administration (VA). Over 800 randomized control trials have been published about ACT (Hayes, 2021), and it is gaining in popularity with clinicians world-wide.
This program will provide clinicians and students with an introduction to ACT including an overview of the theoretical foundations and six areas of psychological flexibility (Acceptance, Defusion, Mindfulness, Self as Context, Values, and Committed Action). The program will include lecture as well as experiential exercises to demonstrate the core principles. Attendees will leave with a broad understanding of ACT and resources to begin implementing ACT in their own practices.

How many suicide and ethics CE's will be issued? Please see the event page on https://www.cbicenterforeducation.com/for information about the training, including how much continuing education is offered and what type.
Will these CE's count toward my individual state licensure or another credential that I currently hold? It is the responsibility of the licensee to determine if trainings are acceptable as continuing education to their state’s licensure board or other credentialing body. Some of our trainings are individually approved for continuing education, such as through the Association of Social Work Boards individual course ACE Program. In addition, CBI is an approved provider of continuing education through the American Psychological Association CESA program and is an approved provider of continuing education to counselors, social workers, and psychologists in the state of New York. Many boards accept trainings that are individual approved or are offered by approved providers for continuing education. Please see the event page for the training you are interested in on our website https://www.cbicenterforeducation.com/for approvals that apply for each specific training.
Will you issue partial CE credits? No, we do not issue partial CE credits and therefore if you do not attend the training in its entirety, you will not be receiving a CE certificate.
