ACT with Adolescents: going deeper with DNA-V to help adolescents with histories of trauma become more compassionate and grow with a flexible self and stronger social connections.

Everything changes in adolescence. Suddenly we can see our childhood and past hurts in ways that can be confusing and make it hard to understand who we are and how we fit in. We also enter a period of social growth, extending ourselves out into the world of friendships, social connections and independence. The developmental period brings significant change to the sense of self, physical self, friendships, and community. Today, young people also have to manage this in the context of social changes that bring existential crises. It can be difficult for any of us to cope but think for a moment of how this might all sit on young shoulders? We see many young people experiencing trauma

Despite all this, young people can find ways to grow stronger.

This workshop will discuss intermediate/advanced therapy skills to demonstrate how to help young people build hopeful action. DNA-v is the distillation of cutting-edge CBS for growth. This model uses research from evolutionary science, behavioural science, ACT, compassion research, and positive psychology to create a new paradigm for promoting vital living. We will use DNA-V for exercises that build compassion, connection and a deeper sense of self. 


  1. Be able to understand how the self can become rigid and inflexible.
  2. Understand how to create flexibility in the self through therapy skills that model openness, compassion and language.
  3. Help young people understand their histories and build stronger relationship skills.
