Introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
This course provides 3 self-study CEU's approved by NYS
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is becoming a more widely used therapeutic approach by mental health providers. This course will provide an overview of important definition, underlying theories, and concepts that inform ACT. A thorough review of current peer reviewed research will be covered in order to provide context and implications of the theories and concepts with the course ending in the application of learning through two case studies and prompts to support your learning.
I am a Rochester, NY licensed mental health counselor. I have been practicing in the field of mental health for nearly 9 years and I am incredibly passionate about reducing stigma for mental health and improving education and access to care. As a provider, I felt a lack of access to continuing education opportunities, which along with my five years of teaching in counselor education, came the inspiration for the Counselor Growth Center. This is a branch of my practice Kehoe Mental Health Counseling, PLLC and has been approved by NYS to offer certified CEU's. I hope to bring you continually changing and evolving course topics, self-study, live in-person, and live webinars. I also plan to grow in collaborating with the amazing colleagues and other amazing clinicians I continue to meet so they can also have a platform to engage with fellow counselors and create a community of ongoing learning. My areas of passion reside in older adults, grief, LGBTQIA, as well as my integrative approaches I take through my work. I am excited to get to know you and welcome your introductions, collaboration ideas, and communication. Cheers to sustaining our spirits to learn and best support those we care for.
