ACT in Behavior Analysis 9-week Consultation Course
Learn How to Get the Most Out of ACT Work with Your Clients
About This Course
- Engage in fluency drills to hone your skills at identifying the six core ACT repertoire deficits from small bits of dialogue.
- Identify competing contingencies of reinforcement, verbal delay discounting, verbally mediated under and over-matching, behavioral inertia, and other means by which client verbal behavior derails your efforts to bring behavior under relevant stimulus control.
- Craft intervention targets to bring client behavior under the control of appropriate contingencies of reinforcement.
- Practice in-the-moment creation of unique, client-specific exercises.
- Harness the metaphors your clients use to expand flexible relational networks and undermine thorny verbal rules.
