Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the promise of psychological flexibility interventions (i.e., acceptance and commitment therapy) for use within schools.
  2. learn about the options for psychological flexibility assessments for youth, that can be used within schools.
  3. understand why the school environment is well-suited for future youth-focused psychological flexibility and acceptance and commitment therapy research.


The purpose of this poster presentation is to highlight the promise of psychological flexibility interventions (i.e., acceptance and commitment therapy [ACT]) and measures for informing a transdiagnostic approach to school mental health work. Participants will also walk away with a better understanding of how to use psychological flexibility assessment tools to gauge treatment response to ACT within the school setting.
