Sunday, 03. March 2019, Widener University, Introductory ACT Training

Join the Pennsylvania Chaper of the Association for Contextual and Behavioral Science (ACBS) for an introductory ACT training. 
ACT is a transdiagnostic cognitive behavioral therapy that incorporates mindfulness and helps people learn how to willingly **** their unwanted internal experiences (i.e., thoughts, feelings, memories, physical sensations) in the service of taking meaningful action.
ACT has been shown to be helpful for people struggling with diverse issues, including: chronic pain, depression, anxiety, OCD, psychosis, and substance abuse.
