In this episode, Matthieu Villatte, PhD, will present an integrative and experiential framework based on relational frame theory (RFT) to help you practice acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and other contextual behavioral therapies through natural conversations. You will learn how to organize your interventions around two main goals: flexible context sensitivity (awareness and flexibility) and functional coherence (pragmatism and integration). You will learn how to use your language to create a context serving these two goals and leading to meaningful change.
- Describe the clinical RFT framework organized around two overarching goals and one main strategy.
- Apply techniques from ACT and other contextual behavioral therapies from the perspective of clinical RFT.
