From Suffering to Thriving: Walking the ACT Way

January 11, 2024

Join us on Jan 11-12, 2024 for a two-day experiential workshop with Joel Guarna, PhD, and Teresa Valliere, LCSW, LADC, CCS, in Portland. Summary: Our clients get stuck in their thoughts, feelings, behavioral patterns, and personal narratives. And we, as helpers, get stuck in our own. These corresponding forms of rigidity are both a primary cause for clients’ suffering and a driver of helplessness, frustration, and burnout in helpers. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) provides a coherent and powerful set of strategies for moving both clients and helpers toward greater psychological flexibility and fulfillment—from suffering to thriving. 

This workshop will be a solid introduction for folks new to ACT and a great refresher for those with intermediate+ levels of experience with ACT. Early bird rate valid until December 21! Follow link (or for more info and registration.
