Mindfulness-based treatment strategies have been growing exponentially in influence and impact over the field of cognitive behavior treatment in the last 30 years. Exciting, creative and empirically driven approaches, such as ACT, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, have been developed and are demonstrating promising results in the treatment of a wide variety of clinical disorders, including depression/anxiety, PTSD, OCD, addictions, eating disorders, and personality disorders. Clinicians and clients alike are learning how mindfulness enhances their efforts to create and maintain change even in the face of years of suffering. Learn how this ancient practice is utilized from an ACT philosophy in dealing with modern day struggles and is revolutionizing the fields of mental health, substance abuse treatment, and numerous other contexts. Participants will have the opportunity to practice a range of mindfulness interventions.
