  • Föreläsare / LecturersNordic ACBS Forum 2012
  • Anu Kangasniemi, Essi Sairanen, Fredrik Livheim & Max Boeling“Low intensity group, mobile and internet ACT interventions forincreasing wellbeing”Brief interventions are cost-effective and often also ideal from theclients point of view. Also, developing these interventions areessential when we are dealing with common health problems that arestressing national economy. There are several studies investigating theeffectiveness of short-term interventions and brief therapies and theresults have been very encouraging. Acceptance and CommitmentTherapy has been shown to be effective as a brief intervention. Thepurpose on this symposium is to present three brief interventions forincreasing wellbeing. Effects of an ACT-based group intervention forencouraging a physically active lifestyle will be presented. Experiencesand preliminary findings of developing an ACT-based internetapplication for treatment of pain and stress, and a mobile interventionfor improving wellbeing will be shown and experiences will bediscussed. There will also be a talk on “Thinking big - How to developand disseminate an evidence based program in a large scale”.Mairead FoodyMairead Foody is chair for a symposium in RFT:Mairéad is currently a psychology research PhD student at TheNational University of Maynooth, Ireland. Her research involves bridgebuilding between ACT and RFT, with a specific focus on self. She haspublished several book chapters and papers on the role of self in ACTand is also a trainee ACT therapist.Ciara McEnteggartCiara is a Psychology Research Doctoral Student under the supervisionof Dr. Yvonne Barnes-Holmes at the National University of Ireland,Maynooth. Her research utilise the Implicit Relational AssessmentProcedure (IRAP) to study behaviours associated with psychosis,particularly auditory hallucinations or ‘voice hearing’. Ciara is alsocurrently undergoing training from Dr. Barnes-Holmes (ACBSaccredited world-trainer in ACT) and is interested in researching
  • further the ACT treatment protocol for psychosis. Ciara has presentedpapers at a number of National and International Conferences such asThe Association for Contextual Behavioural Sciences (ACBS) AnnualWorld Conference X, Washington, D.C.  (July 2012), Division ofBehaviour Analysis (DBA) Annual Conference, Trinity College Dublin(April 2012) and The Psychological Society of Ireland’s (PSI) AnnualStudent Congress, Trinity College Dublin (April 2009).“An Empirical Investigation of Hierarchical versus Distinction Relationsin a Self-based ACT Exercise by Mairéad Foody, Yvonne Barnes-Holmes,& Dermot Barnes-Holmes”Since its inception, ACT has placed a significant emphasis on the useof self-based techniques, and the self was defined initially through thethree selves (i.e., self as content, self as process, and self as context).In addition, RFT provided a more technical account of self in terms ofthe deictic relational frames. However, the overlap between ACT’smid-level terms (e.g., self as context) and RFT’s derived relations hasbeen the subject of limited empirical scrutiny. The current studyinvestigated the relative utility of manipulating distinction deicticversus hierarchical deictic relations in a self as context exercisedesigned to reduce experimentally induced emotional distress. Thefindings demonstrated superiority of the intervention that focused onhierarchical, rather than distinction, deictic relations in terms ofreducing distress. The implications of the data for the potentialoverlap between ACT and RFT are discussed.Daniel EkPsychologist and yoga teacher.“Yoga für alle”Want to stay fit the wholeconference through?

Evidencefor Processes of Change in ACT.” ACT has been proposed to target specific key functional dimensionalprocesses of change. However, this notion is an ongoing theoreticalcontroversy in the field of behavioral and cognitive therapies. In thecurrent symposium, we will review the evidence for processes ofchange in acceptance-based treatments, in particular ACT for chronichealth conditions (pain, tinnitus, epilepsy). Three ACT researchers willpresentdata and review the extent evidence for mechanisms of change in ACT.The research is reviewed in the context of A. E. Kazdin’s criteria forestablishing a mechanism of change in psychological treatments.Jonas RamneröSjälfull behaviorism – Om anti-mentalism, pragmatism och själen.(Soulful behaviorism – On anti-mentalism, pragmatism and the soul.)Psykologin vilar i många avseenden på en tanketradition där mantillskriver människan en separat själslig substans och det utgör ävenen demarkationslinje där behaviorismen uppfattas som apart. Men hurkommer det sig att vi talar om själen, vad är det vi talar om och kan enbehaviorist göra det? Det är frågor som kommer att beröras i dettaanförande.

  • Psychotherapy (ISTDP). 2.       Brief exercises using the dynamic ACT model. Cognitive and psychodynamic theory is sometimes viewed as twoconflicting approached to therapy. However, the third wavepsychotherapy represented by ACT (Acceptance and CommitmentTherapy) and the modern form of psychodynamic therapy representedby ISTDP (Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy), have strongapplied similarities while being conceptually different. The briefpresentation illustrates a model that combines the two approachesinto an ACT consistent applied model; "dynamic ACT model".Participants are guided through brief exercises. Niklas TörnekeNiklas Törneke, MD, is a psychiatrist and has worked as a seniorpsychiatrist in the department of general psychiatry in his hometownKalmar (in the southeast of Sweden) from 1991 until he started privatepractice 1998.

His clinicalexperience ranges from psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia tocommon anxiety and mood disorders with high prevalence in thegeneral population."Relationsinramningsteori (RFT) är den teoretiska grunden för ACTmen har mycket vidare implikationer än så eftersom det är en teori ommänskligt språk och kognition i sin helhet. Föreläsningen kommer attge en allmän introduktion till RFT och kort peka på kliniskaimplikationer för psykologisk behandling generellt."Ola FörlinOla is 30 years old and originally from Göteborg. He has lived inStockholm for a little more than five years but still misses the brisk,salty winds of the west coast. Ola describes himself as a part timesocial animal, part time home hermit.

  • He has recently finished his degree of master of science in psychologyat Stockholm University. For his masters dissertation he held a coursefor significant others to persons with a drinking problem. The coursewas based on Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT),which is a structured program with a main goal of making people withalcohol- or drug problems to seek help. The subject of this symposium presentation is CommunityReinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) a structured program witha main goal of making treatment refusing individuals with a alcohol-or drug problem to seek help. The "client" in CRAFT is someone close to the person with the problem(Concerned Significant Other, CSO) who wants their loved one(Identified Patient, IP) to get into treatment. The program is built on abehavioral foundation with functional analysis and behavior trainingwith a goal of giving the CSO strategies to change the difficultsituation theyre in. A CRAFT-therapy has three main goals: decreasing the use of alcohol,making the treatment refusing individual seek help and increasing thelife-quality of the CSO. CRAFT differs from other groups for CSO:s likeAl-Anon through its purpose of trying to make the clients more activein the process of getting the drinker/drug user into therapy. Manystudies have been made (mainly in the US) comparing groups and theirtreatment methods to each other in terms of success rate of makingthe IP:s seek help. CRAFT has shown a significantly higher rate in thesestudies with an average of 60-70 % of the CSO:s successfully makingtheir IP:s get into treatment.As part of his masters dissertation at the Psychology institution atStockholm University, Ola Förlin applied a modified version of CRAFTto five CSO:s who were worried about a loved ones drinking. This wasthe first time that CRAFT was administered in Sweden and showedpromising results.This presentation is aimed at anyone who is interested in addictiontreatment or is interested in how you can work with people related tosomeone with a problematic behaviour.

  • avoid or eliminate them is strong. Acceptance and CommitmentTherapy (ACT) is a new model ofbehavioural treatment that emphasizesacceptance of internal experience whilemaintaining a focus on positive behaviourchange. This approach is designed toaddress maladaptive avoidance of internalexperiences associated with manyproblems in functioning while alsofocusing on making and keepingcommitments. A Functional ContextualModel for OCD has been developed andwill be described in this presentation.Randi Breivik ”Hvorvidt ACT er et alternativ tilmedikamentell behandling tror jeg viltilslutt handle om preferansen klientenhar til behandling og ikke minst hvilkenideologi som råder på behandlingsstedet. Fra et helhetlig oghumanistisk perspektiv samt egneerfaringer innenfor psykiskhelsearbeid, er jeg av denoppfatning at ACT er en meget godalternativ til medikamentellbehandling. Begrunnelsen ligger iideen om at utfordringene rundtangsten blir satt lys på og som mantar stilling til der og da med åpneøyne. Medisinering kan sløvesansene og etter min oppfatninghindre den angstlidende i å semulighetene.”

En aspekt i det är att läraren kan geinstruktioner i undervisningen som alla elever har förutsättningar attsnabbt förstå och därmed uppleva det som brukar beskrivas sombegriplighet, meningsfullhet och hanterbarhet. Idag finns det ettbehov av att utveckla sätt att mer precist och objektivt kunna meravgöra om en elev förstått viktiga aspekter av en kort instruktion,speciellt inom en ordinarie klassrumssituation. Kanske kan metodikenbakom att få fram härlett relationellt handlande hjälpa ossatt skapa mått som på ett meningsfullt sätt kan utvärderaolika kvalitéer I lärarinstruktioner i termer av uttrycktelevförståelse. Mycket forskning återstår. Resultatet istudierna som presenteras här antyder att metodiken skullekunna användas för att koppla variationer av aspekter i

Several studies indicate very high stress levels andpsychological distress in parents to children with autism (e.g., Mungoet al., 2007).  ACT has been found to be an effective intervention fordistressed parents to children with ASD (e.g., Blackledge & Hayes,2006).  In 2008, the Autismcenter for young children started offering a4-session ACT-group to mothers based on the manual “ACT tocope with stress and increase health" (Livheim, 2007).The purpose of this presentation is to go through the study done atthe Autismcenter for Young children in cooperation with the universityof Jyväskyläs department of Psychology regarding short term ACT-groups for mothers parenting a child with ASD. In The aim of the studywas to find out whether the ACT-intervention had a positive influenceon psychological well-being ofparticipants as measured in increasedpsychological flexibility, greatermindfulness, and a decline in depression.In addition, experiences from thesegroups will be shared along with parentsfeedback regarding effects of ACT on notjust on their psychological well-being butalso parenting.Tobias Lundgren

För närvarande arbetar jag påSödermottagningen i Helsingborg som är en psykiatrisk mottagningför vuxna, och då främst med psykologisk behandling i olika format;individuellt, i grupp, i team med övriga professioner, över internet, ifokuserad form inom primärvård, samt med utveckling avpsykologiska och psykiatriska behandlingsmodeller i verksamheten.”Kontextuell Psykiatri”Södermottagningen är en upphandlad verksamhet som funnits sedan imaj 2009. Det är den första psykiatriska mottagning i landet som
  • byggts och drivs av ett psykologföretag. Givetvis är mottagningenmultiprofessionellt bemannad men där den gemensamma modellenöver professionsgränserna är inlärningspsykologisk. Mottagningen var2011 nominerad till stora psykologpriset.Resultaten för verksamheten är kraftigt reducerade inläggningar islutenvården liksom drastigt minskad förskrivning av psykofarmaka.Detta med hög patientnöjdhet och nöjdhet hos samverkansparter ochvårdgrannar. Hur är det möjligt att bygga en psykiatrisk verksamhet påen kontextuell grund där traditionella strukturer och vårdformerutmanats? ”Fokuserad ACT/ Brief interventions”Fokuserad ACT eller "brief interventions" är en modell utformad för attmöta ett brett behov av psykologisk kompetens och behandling i ettpopulationsperspektiv. En vanlig dag strömmar det igenom hundratalsklienter på en större vårdcentral. Ca en tredjedel kommer ha ngn formav psykisk ohälsa och betydligt många fler i behov av olikalivstilsförändringar. Många vårdcentraler har inte ens enfulltidspsykolog för att möta detta behov. Hur kan man transformeraorganisation och arbetssätt för att maximera "impact" av de resursersom finns? Fokuserad ACT är en modell för just detta där psykologenfår en helt ny roll och nya arbetssätt!Trym Nordstrand JacobsenTrym Nordstrand Jacobsen, Cand, psykol.
