ACT is often looked at as a micro intervention with individual or small groups, but can be effective on a mezzo and macro level: intervening with large-scale change in communities and systems, like a clinic, school, large organization or even government. This webinar focuses on conceptualizing macro-level change with contextual behavioral science through understanding how policies get formed and understanding intended and unintended consequences, as well as ACT-consistent techniques in forming policy interventions. In this webinar, you’ll learn to facilitate change with micro and mezzo issues on a macro level. You’ll learn to work with policy makers as well as build empowering relationships with clients, participants, and communities by involving them in systemic change.

Learning Objectives

  1. Discuss the role of contextual behavioral science in understanding policy issues and formulating an ACT-consistent response.
  2. Demonstrate adapting ACT to community and systemic policy intervention settings as well as community-based participatory research.
