Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based, third-wave cognitive behavioral therapy that can have particular appeal for application with minoritized and oppressed populations. Please join Drs. Bianca Augustine and Kelly Koo who are both honored to share their expertise with the DCPA community on why and how they apply ACT in clinical practice with members of minoritized and oppressed communities.
