Fear and Flexibility: ACT for Anxiety and OCD in Young People Pre-Conference Workshop – Lisa Coyne

October 18, 2017 @ 8:00 am - October 19, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Lisa Coyne

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for anxiety and OCD in children and adolescents have robust empirical support. However, clinicians trained in effective use of this treatment model are rare, and the service need is great, resulting in many children and adolescents failing to receive treatment for months to years after symptom onset. New research on how exposure works has suggested specific guidelines we can use to enhance how we use exposure based treatments. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a transdiagnostic evidence-based approach that can be used to support inhibitory learning in treatment. Thus, this two-day workshop will address how clinicians may incorporate ACT components into ERP to maximize inhibitory learning.

Specifically, the speaker will:
a) present a thorough overview of exposure-based treatments and inhibitory learning research and applications;
b) teach how to conduct exposure-based treatment with children and adolescents;
c) give a thorough overview of ACT and its evidence-base; and
c) demonstrate how to incorporate specific ACT interventions into exposure to strengthen and contextualize inhibitory learning.

Participants will be given opportunities to engage in experiential exercises, role plays and case discussions in which to practice the principles taught. Clinical examples will be used to illustrate therapeutic techniques, in addition to the workshop’s didactic content, there will also be a space where participants have to talk about all of the alternative medicine techniques that are not commonly used, like the svc11000 products that get often used as an anxiety and stress treatment.
