Clinical Application of ACT for Behaviour Analysts: 
3-Day Intensive Course

We are happy to announce that we will be offering a advance ACT 3-day intensive course given by the amazing Dr. Evelyn Gould. This is joint venture by Allambi Care and ABA Australia to provide you with a more in depth understanding of ACT and how to apply it to your practice. Check out the agenda. Seats are limited, so don't delay in buying your ticket.

Join Dr. Evelyn Gould for a 3-day intensive training course in the clinical application of ACT for ABA practitioners. This workshop is designed to provide practitioners with ‘hands-on’ training in assessment, case conceptualization, treatment planning, implementation, trouble-shooting, and treatment evaluation from an ACT perspective. An introduction to the underlying philosophical and theoretical roots of ACT will be provided, however, the focus of this training will be on clinical skill building and the application of ACT alongside more traditional ABA strategies. The workshop will also emphasize the importance of establishing a strong therapeutic alliance with families, and engaging in self-practice for behaviour analysts. Participants will learn skills and techniques they can use within their everyday work, while still staying within their scope of practice. Training will include didactic presentation, modeling and role-play, with active practice opportunities for participants to apply and receive feedback on new skills. The workshop will include individual, small group and large group exercises, and there will be opportunities for participants to present case examples and engage in case consultation with peers and the trainer.
