This workshop will describe the similarities and differences, both theoretically and therapeutically between Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness and Acceptance Based Behavior Therapies, including such common intervention packages as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). This workshop is intended for the practitioner who may have been trained in the traditional model of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (i.e. REBT) and wishes to both understand and learn how to integrate the more contemporary acceptance and mindfulness based interventions into their daily work. The participant will be systematically taken through a thorough theoretical and empirical exploration of these techniques with the intent to allow for a deeper understanding of the challenges to, and possibilities of, both theoretical and technical integration of these two evidence-based models.
Leader: Frank Gardner, Ph.D.
