Workshop Description

This workshop will provide an introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), including the key concepts and its compatibility with KAP and NOSC-Assisted Psychotherapy. ACT is a therapeutic framework ideally suited for the preparation, guiding and integration of psychedelic experience. It will include lectures, clinical vignettes, mindfulness exercises and small group discussions.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is gaining increasing support in the area of non-ordinary states of consciousness (NOSC)-Assisted Psychotherapies. It has been used in a variety of clinical studies, including studies done at Yale University and the Imperial College of London.

Teachings are appropriate for healthcare professionals as well as the general public. Healthcare professionals will be able to incorporate the tools and practices offered in this program in ways beneficial to clients or patients.
