Session III: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy & Functional Analytic Psychotherapy: But I am not a therapist…

May 11, 2022

Building strong therapeutic connections with the people we support should be at the core of each organization. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy (FAP) are evidence-based therapeutic interventions use by clinicians to treat mental illness. Research supports the use of these models in treating those dually diagnosed with intellectual/developmental disabilities. In this session, we will review the core tenants of both ACT and FAP. We will explore the important role these models play in understanding the internal, private events of the people we support which in turn can help us better understand their behavior. One does not have to be a therapist to understand and incorporate the principles of ACT or FAP into their relationships, either professional or personal.  Our goal is to provide concrete ideas of how all disciplines can implement these strategies for better, more therapeutic relationships and more positive interactions, no matter what role you play.
