Jamie R. Forsyth, PhD,
is a clinician, clinical supervisor, and trainer with expertise in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in inpatient and outpatient mental health settings. Her clinical work offers unique insights into the subtle nuances of ACT as it unfolds in clinical practice.
Acceptance and mindfulness-based practices are rapidly making their way into mental health care, medicine, and society — both to alleviate human suffering and nurture psychological health and wellness. This body of work offers a fresh perspective on psychological suffering, and powerful clinical strategies that support meaningful life changes. In this workshop for mental health professionals, participants will learn about one particular approach and set of evidence-based practices called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
