Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based approach that can be used to support inhibitory learning, especially if used with ERP. Thus, this workshop will show how clinicians may incorporate ACT components into ERP. Specifically, three expert clinicians will teach and model how to conduct ACT-based exposure-based treatment with children and adolescents to strengthen inhibitory learning processes. Participants will have opportunities for role plays, practice, and consultation. Special attention will be given to treatment refractory youth.
