When registering, please select a donation level that works for you.

Teachers are stressed. Students are falling apart. Parents are exhausted. Organizations are struggling. And YOU are getting burnt out. We already know that ACT is an evidence-based intervention that has been applied across various settings to address numerous physical, mental and behavioral health issues. But is it enough? How do we help on a grander scale? And maybe more importantly, how do we help ourselves!?

In this talk we’re going to review the applications ACT in the workplace, in schools, and as part of behavioral skills training and caregiver training as a reminder of the vast utility and empirical support of this technology. We’ll then discuss some barriers to these applications and take a unique spin to review the science behind yoga, the overlaps between ACT and Yoga, and discuss how this approach may be a way of reaching and helping more people. And finally, but
most importantly, we’re going to turn to ourselves and assess our own levels of stress and burn out, our current self-care repertoire, and be introduced to what I like to call ACT-Infused Yoga.

This webinar will be a combination of didactic and experiential learning and participants will leave with permanent products, self-report data, and specific ways they can implement the reviewed approach as part of their own self-care routine. We will end with a discussion regarding the potential benefits and utility of this approach across populations.

PraxisCET is proud to help support this work. Proceeds from this presentation will go directly to Commit and Act, providing vital funding for the health and education services they provide in Sierra Leone and elsewhere.

This training is worth 2 CE credit hours if attended live. While we can only provide CE to those who are present – i.e. logged in – for live presentation(s), all Praxis webinars are recorded for later viewing. Registrants may then access these recordings at any time for up to six months from the conclusion of the training to which they pertain.
