Episode 3: Utilizing ACT for Personal Well-being
1 BACB CEU
Studies have shown high rates of stress and burnout among BCBAs, suggesting a greater need for the adoption of better self-care practices. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based technology, rooted in Contextual Behavior Science, that addresses the potential role of private events in affecting socially significant behaviors (Hayes, 2004). ACT has been applied across various settings to address numerous physical, mental and behavioral health issues, including stress and burnout. In this microdosing training series, we’re going to assess our own levels of stress and burnout and be introduced to various ACT-based tools and approaches that can be utilized to help decrease stress and burnout, and increase valued living.
This series of talks will include a combination of didactic and experiential learning, and participants will leave with permanent products, self-report data, and specific ways they can implement the reviewed approach as part of their own self-care routine.
Participants will be able to:
- Assess their own levels of stress and burnout.
- Develop an ACTion Plan to increase their own self-care practices
