Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a newer evidence-based model of psychotherapy focusing on being present, being open, and taking action in alignment with what is important. This interactive intensive course will teach the ACT core processes and examine how they can be used to increase your own psychological flexibility within music therapy sessions. Note: This e-course was first offered at the 2021 AMTA National Conference as Add-on Course R. It was recorded for later viewing and access.
