Behaviour Analysts are going through challenging times. In addition to behavioural problems, clients may also present with some mental health issues. Research on ACT, which has a strong background in Behavior Analysis, has empirical support in successfully treating psychological issues such as Anxiety Disorders and Depression ( Hooper and Larsson, 2015). ACT is considered one of the APA evidence-based treatments. The aim of the workshop is to outline some of the ACT concepts and present four cases ( 2 individuals with Autism and 1 typically developed adult) indicating how ABA and ACT were successfully applied.
