ACT Mindfully: Acceptance & Commitment Therapy in Dietetics Practice

An Introduction to ACT & Mindfulness

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and mindfulness are gaining momentum and popularity in the current culture at large and body of scientific literature. The field of nutrition and dietetics frequently intersects with the counseling and therapeutic setting, and a solid ACT foundation can be effective for dietitians engaging in nutrition therapy. As many dietitians work in eating disorder care as well as behavioral nutrition, ACT principles can be used to effectively help clients and patients heal. This webinar will provide practical tools to help dietitians integrate this framework into their practice.
