IBHC Sustainment Training: November 2014


Date/Time:  November 4, 2014; 2-3:30 p.m. (EST)
 

Mindfulness and acceptance-based approaches are growing in evidence and popularity among mental health providers. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a well-known cognitive behavioral treatment that includes mindfulness techniques and helps patients reduce suffering through values-based behavior change. ACT has an expanding evidence base with research supporting its efficacy in addressing a variety of presenting complaints, such as chronic pain, anxiety, depression, substance use, and other issues likely to emerge in the primary care setting. ACT strategies and interventions can be readily adapted to the fast-paced setting of integrated behavioral health in primary care. This presentation will provide Internal Behavioral Health Consultants (IBHCs) with a greater understanding of the theory and application of ACT, to include brief interventions applicable to the IBHC’s clinical work. The six core processes of ACT will be explained, in addition to metaphors and exercises ideal for helping patients decrease avoidance and increase valued living. A variety of resources will also be shared for learning more about ACT and mindfulness strategies.
 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Explain when and why acceptance and/or mindfulness-based interventions would be helpful in IBHC work
  • Identify common experiential avoidance strategies
  • Incorporate brief/basic acceptance and mindfulness-based interventions into IBHC practices
