Description: Trauma-focused acceptance and commitment therapy (TF-ACT) is an innovative approach to treating trauma that combines the principles of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) with a trauma-informed perspective.  Emphasizing mindfulness, acceptance and values-based action, TF-ACT is designed to help individuals live more fulfilling lives despitetheir trauma history.  Unlike traditional trauma-focused therapies that primarily aim to reduce symptoms of trauma, TF-ACT supports individuals in identifying their thoughts, feelings and sensations. 

In this workshop, paritcipants will gain an introductory understanding of the theory and techniques of TF-ACT, along with practical tools and strategies for integrating these techniques into their clinical practice.  We will explore the unique features of TF-ACT and how they contribute to a more comprehensive and flexible approach to trauma tretment.  Through case examples, experiential exercises and group discussion, participants will have the opportunity to apply TF-ACT principles and techniques.  By the end of the workshop, participants will have an expanded understanding of the benefits of TF-ACT and how to implement it effectively in their work with clients who have experienced trauma.   

This is part of BHE's 10-course Trauma Series

**Trauma Series**                                                                                                                                        BHE's trauma series provides an array of courses that support the development of trauma-informed care, assessment, and treatment planning for children, adolescents and adults.  Each trauma series course is rooted in the understanding that trauma is a fundamental issue for many people seeking treatment, and that trauma-informed care is essential to promote recovery and resilience.

A certificate of completion is available for those who successfully complete 50 hours of courses in the trauma-informed training series.  Interested individuals have three years to complete the ten courses.  Each course is five hours in duration, with two required core courses and eight elective courses.  These ten courses are offered via webinar through DHS Training Series in 2024, with the hope to offer these courses and/or others in future years.

The two required courses are "The Fundamentals: Trauma Definitions and Diagnoses" and "The Fundamentals: Trauma-Informed Care." Beyond that, BHE offers a rotating array of trauma-related courses on many topics, including: children, adolescents, families, gender, race, treatment approaches, vicarious trauma and many others.

The rationale is to offer a selection of courses that are current and meet the interests and needs of providers.  Each course comes with a certificate for 5 hours of continuing education.  When you have successfully accomplished 50 hours of training, you will receive an additional certificate of completion for the full trauma series through the mail.
