    Acceptance
    Self-as-context
    Values
    Committed action
    The relationship between the six basic processes and Relational Frame Theory (RFT)
    How to apply the Psychological Flexibility Model to case conceptualization and treatment planning
    Practical skills for meeting clients where they are and fostering their willingness and openness to change
    Ways to assess, observe, and influence client processes in session
