Service Description

ACT for Children with Anxiety and OCD is a 10-session, live, online, didactic + consultation course for clinicians who wish to use ACT, emphasizing exposure and response prevention for youngsters with OCD and anxiety disorders. It is based on the process-basd developmental model of ACT developed by Louise Hayes and Joseph Ciarrocchi (see The Thriving Adolescent, New Harbinger, 2015). Clinical examples, role play demonstrations, and opportunities for participants to practice will augment the workshop’s didactic content to illustrate case conceptualization and pragmatic applications of therapeutic techniques.
