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