Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Trauma-Informed Practices: Strategies for the School Practitioner
In this session, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) theory and tools are highlighted as an effective intervention for burnout and trauma-related employment stress (TRES) among school staff. This presentation is skills-based and interactive in nature. Current research surrounding burnout and TRES, along with instruction regarding specific, evidence-based ACT strategies to target individual burnout and TRES effects, will be the focus. Participants will leave with hands-on, practical skills that they can begin to use immediately both personally and within the institutions wherein they work.
