Presenter Name: Adrienne Bradley M.Ed., BCBA., LBA (MD/MI)
Date/Time: February 23rd at 7 pm est
Presentation Summary: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) has become more of an emphasis in Behavior Analysis. If you’re new to incorporating ACT into your practice, it can be difficult to create applicable activities and feel comfortable implementing goals associated with the 6 principles of the Hexaflex. In this presentation we will be tackling the principle of Diffusion. We will dissect applied applications of Diffusion activities and strategies. The audience will learn how to incorporate Diffusion processes to coach highly stressed caregivers so our learners are supported in an affirming, values driven way.
