The objective of this workshop will be to build on introductory Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) skills to develop more experiential skills in the service of helping our clients (and ourselves) commit to living a vital and meaningful life.

By the end of this workshop, clinicians will be able to:
- Describe the role of control strategies in creating psychological problems.
