This workshop will explore the ACT theory of self and its centrality in working with shame, self-criticism, and the development of self-compassion. In addition to focusing on the conceptualized self, we will also examine how the client’s construction of the therapist is important in working with these types of clients. A particular focus of this workshop will be on the use of perspective taking interventions to help clients develop newer and more flexible ways of relating to themselves. Participants will engage in their own experiential work in small groups using ACT processes. Therapists can expect to walk away with an increased experiential and practical understanding of how to use acceptance, mindfulness, perspective-taking, and values interventions with clients suffering from chronic shame and self-criticism.
