DASC is thrilled to announce an exciting addition to our 2019 training calendar! On Saturday November 16th, 2019, DASC will be hosting Dr. Emily K. Sandoz for a full day presentation on adapting Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in working with clients struggling with body image inflexibility.
This full day workshop, entitled Thriving in the Skin They’re In: Building Body Image Flexibility using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), will teach participants how to describe body image inflexibility and examples of ways it might present, compare and contrast body image flexibility as a therapeutic goal with traditional models of symptom reduction, and generate clinical examples of ways one might facilitate building body image flexibility using ACT.
Dr. Emily K. Sandoz is the Emma Louise LeBlanc Burguieres/BORSF Endowed Professor of Social Sciences in the Psychology Department at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Emily is the Director of the Louisiana Contextual Science Research Group and the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Contextual Behavioral Science. She has co-authored three books on acceptance and commitment therapy for struggles with eating and body image, along with chapters and journal articles on ACT, Relational Frame Theory, values, the therapeutic relationship, and psychological flexibility. Emily has led more than 70 professional training workshops around the world, and serves as a peer-reviewed ACT trainer. She also practices as a Clinical Psychologist, focusing on clinical behavior analysis of body-related difficulties.
