Gambling disorder is a pervasive problem affecting individuals across the lifespan and is highly correlated with a range of other mental health disorders, including depression, substance use, mood and personality disorders. Emerging research to date has shown the effectiveness of ‘third-wave’ behavioral interventions, including acceptance and commitment therapy.
Dr. Alyssa Wilson, Ph.D., BCBA-D, LBA, will provide clinicians with an overview of how to use ACT when working with individuals with problem gambling. Clinical case examples highlighting best practices when using ACT with other evidence-based strategies will also be discussed.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to:
• Describe the six components of ACT within a gambling context
• Identify four key components of ACT interventions
• Identify three clinical strategies and exercises to use with clients
• Provide overview of research on ACT for problem gambling
• Review of ACT treatment components and mechanisms for change
• Understand how to use ACT within clinical practice
This workshop is 1.0 hours in length. It is FREE to attend.
