Learning ACT will change your clinical work and life...

In this transformational online training course, leading experts in the ACT community, including Daniel J. Moran, PhD, BCBA-D, Steven C. Hayes, PhD, and more, will provide in-depth training on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, preparing you to integrate ACT into your practice. You'll learn to apply ACT in a flexible and fluid way that will help your clients:


Here's everything included in the online training course:

MODULE 1: ACT Step-by-Step

In Module 1, you'll gain a comprehensive understanding of the principles and processes involved in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Daniel (D.J.) Moran will guide you step-by-step through the tenets of the ACT Model:

  • Acceptance of what we cannot control, and why it's important!
  • Cognitive defusion and looking at thoughts rather than from thoughts.
  • Perspective-Taking and understanding the “Self” in ACT.
  • Mindfulness and why being here-and-now in the present is critical.
  • Values, beliefs, and the importance in therapy and life.
  • Committed action and integrating evidence-based therapy with ACT.

Through D.J.'s expert, insightful commentary, case studies, and video examples, you'll develop highly practical, evidence-based skills, and learn powerful assessment tools, case conceptualization techniques, and proven clinical strategies that you can immediately apply in your practice.


"D.J. changed the way I do therapy and my patients are better for it. He has a knack for making ACT very practical and user-friendly.”
Rosemarie L. (London, UK)


MODULE 2: In-Session Demonstrations

In Module 2, Steven C. Hayes will guide you through the application of ACT in client therapy sessions. Throughout the module, you'll see Hayes and other leading ACT experts demonstrate their techniques and interventions, including, Ann Bailey-Ciarrochi, JoAnne Dahl, Rainer Sonntag, Kirk Strosahl, Robyn Walser, Rikard Wicksell, and Kelly Wilson.

Facing the Struggle

Watch Steven C. Hayes use creative hopelessness, a process unique to ACT, to help a client suffering from significant social anxiety drop into his feelings and sensations and begin to more deeply engage in therapy. This segment also includes Hayes working with a young mother struggling with anxiety and depression; Ann Bailey-Ciarrochi, MA, working with a teacher with panic disorder; and JoAnne Dahl, PhD, working with a woman who suffers from chronic pain.


ACT takes on the power of unruly thoughts and unwanted feelings! See Hayes demonstrate the principle of accepting what we cannot control, while guiding his client to accept anxiety without struggle and live in accordance with personal values. He then addresses the risk of falling too quickly into “pseudo-acceptance,” and you'll learn to identify the signs of this pitfall through Ann Bailey-Ciarrochi's session with the teacher struggling with panic.


Watch Hayes and master ACT clinician Rainer Sonntag, MD, demonstrate a variety of cognitive defusion techniques that therapists can easily integrate into practice to help their clients de-fuse and accept thoughts without struggle, enabling them to engage with life more consciously and intentionally.


See mindfulness practices and techniques in the therapy room during a session with Tony, a client in recovery from addiction, who Hayes helps slow down and connect with himself — preparing him to be more immersed in therapy. You'll also watch ACT co-founder, Kelly Wilson, PhD, conduct a powerful piece of clinical supervision that helps a struggling ACT therapist manage her anxiety and engage more deeply with her clients.


Watch Hayes guide clients to connect with deeply-held values, uncover the link to emotional pain, and create the groundwork for meaningful goals. In an intensive session with a depressed young mother, master ACT therapist Rainer Sonntag, MD, helps her define values as a parent and set goals for herself.


Tie together all the components of the ACT model for use in a variety of contexts by therapists of every orientation. You'll see multiple demonstrations by ACT therapists and master clinicians including, ACT co-founders, Kirk Strosahl, PhD and Steven C. Hayes, PhD and Robyn Walser, PhD, as they integrate ACT processes into actual treatment scenarios with clients.
