Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Caregivers – What’s it all about? (CES)

This workshop is about caring for the caregiver. Participants will be taught tools and techniques towards taking care of themselves so that they, in turn, can mindfully connect with their child/young adult. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) processes and how they can support caregivers of neurodiverse individuals (including autism and other developmental differences) will be discussed.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) seeks to help individuals to manage difficult things in their lives and mindfully connect with things that are most important in a way that is loving and respectful. With an introduction to the concept of ‘mindfulness,’ ACT helps to develop a new mindful relationship with unwanted thoughts and feelings. This process helps a person to be more open, and to take action consistent with what they care about.
