Rhode Island ACT
The Providence Model: an ACT Practice Group
Hey All, there is an ongoing group that has come together to help foster greater competence and confidence utilizing the Acceptance and Commitment Therapeutic Approach.
Take a look at the two main objectives and respond to this post if you are interested in being part of this group.
RI ACT Practice Group Overview
Group meets the 2nd Monday of every month from 11:30am until 1:30pm.
2100 Broad Street, Cranston, RI
The session is broken into 6 - 20 minute segments. Segment 1 is a recap and review. Segment 2 is a focus on a process and skills. Segments 3 - 5 are skills practice and the final is review.
This group is process driven, that is, a case is presented and one or more clinicians are encouraged to practice their skills in one of the six main processes of ACT.
Each session focuses in depth on one of the six processes to help clinicians of any experience level gain greater confidence and competence.
Purposes of the ACT Peer Consultation Group
1. To provide ongoing didactic and experiential training in the competent use of ACT with a variety of clinical problems.
Certain group members may serve as the senior content experts; however, as participants in the consultation group attend and participate over time, they will be expected to actively present material to others (the see one, do one, teach one model) and take responsibility for the direction of the group.
Group members also commit to outside learning in the form of reading books, intentional practice, attending trainings, and/or joining the ACT listserv, as it is impossible to cover every aspect of the model in a two hour monthly meeting.
2. To provide consultation to individuals who are working to apply ACT in their clinical work. This group is for people who are actively using ACT in their clinical work and want to improve their application of ACT principles.
Consultation may involve case conceptualization, practicing experiential exercises, role-plays, or discussion of whether ACT is appropriate for a given patient or presenting problem.
