The workshop begins on day 1 with a review of the philosophical and theoretical tenets of ACT. Assessment of body image dissatisfaction in various contexts using ACT is discussed. This is followed by didactic and experiential work using each of the six core processes in ACT as they apply to treating body image dissatisfaction. Dr. Pearson-Mauro will conduct some in-vivo demonstrations of each core process. Participants will be asked to practice applying each of the core processes with a partner or in groups, using case examples from their work or case vignettes. Exercises from the book, ACT for Body Image Dissatisfaction will be reviewed in teaching the application of each core process.

The morning of Day 2 of the workshop will continue this work with self as context, values clarification and committed action. Then demonstration and practice integrating all six core processes in ACT to treat body image dissatisfaction will be practiced in small groups or pairs.
