OPEN TO THE PUBLIC | IN-PERSON WORKSHOP | REGISTRATION REQUIRED | 13 CE HOURS AVAILABLE FOR A FEE

Over the course of two days, led by Brian Mundy, LCSW (bio), we will discover together the depth of the Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) model and its application for helping others lead a life that feels more purposeful amidst trauma history. We will look, from many angles, at how one’s learning history can shape experiences of danger and vigilance, and how changing one’s relationship to that learning history can provide a sense of freedom and liberation. This is a highly interactive in-person training, with role plays, exercises, games, videos, and opportunities to work on current cases. On day 1 we will go deep into the ACT model, and on Day 2 we will focus on the three stages of trauma – particularly exposure – as well as integrating other trauma models such as Prolonged Exposure, EMDR, and Written Exposure Therapy.
