In Search of Meaning: Using Self-Compassion and Values Clarification in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with Diana Hill, PhD


This workshop will be experiential in nature and provide a set of tools that can be applied clinically. I will present how values clarification can motivate authentic and meaningful clinical change. I will also draw from emerging research on self-compassion and teach simple practices that activate the soothing emotion regulation system.


Workshop Objectives:


Upon completion of this workshop, participants will have the skills to:

  • Define the process of “values” in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Describe how values can motivate change in psychotherapy
  • Conduct values clarification exercises with clients
  • Define components of self-compassion that have been identified through clinical research
  • Describe a model of self-compassion based on neuroscience
  • Conduct self-compassion exercises with clients
