Following a traumatic brain injury (TBI), individuals may present a series of complex psychological symptoms, which can impact recovery. To address the adjustment process following a TBI, clinicians can implement Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) into treatment, which incorporates concepts from both traditional behavioral therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. ACT can help individuals accept their deficits and commit to making proper adjustments, ultimately leading to increased participation and reduced psychological distress.
After this 60-minute webinar you will be able to:
- Develop a general understanding of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and describe its basic techniques
- Identify necessary modifications to group formats based on relevant literature
- Create an appropriate ACT-based group therapy format for TBI populations
