A research project evaluating a virtual Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) series for caregivers of individuals with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD)

ACT seeks to help individuals to struggle less with difficult things in their lives and mindfully connect with things that are most important in a way that is loving and respectful. With an introduction to the concept of mindfulness, ACT does not attempt to directly change or stop unwanted thoughts or feelings, but to develop a new mindful relationship with those experiences that can free a person up to being open, and to take action consistent with what they care about. This is a research project evaluating the benefits of ACT for caregivers.

About the Virtual Series
The virtual ACT intervention is spread over 4 consecutive Wednesday evenings followed by a refresher evening session, held 4 weeks later.

About the Facilitators
One facilitator is a parent of a child with FASD and the other facilitators are health care professionals.
