Session III: Annual Conference

About the event

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. 2.0 Continuing Education Units will be provided to: Qualified Intellectual Disability Professional (QIDP), Licensed Nursing Home Administrator (LNHA), Licensed Occupational Therapist (OT), Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA), Licensed Physical Therapist (PT), Physical Therapy Assistant (PTA), Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC), Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Social Worker (LSW), Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), Licensed Clinical Psychologist (LCP), Advanced Practice Nurse (ANP), Registered Nurse (RN) & Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN)
