Brief biography: Dr. Mackaronis earned her Ph.D. from the University of Utah in 2014. She currently works in the Mental Health Clinic and Caregiver Support Program at the Spokane VA Medical Center, and supervises and teaches residents in the Spokane Psychiatry Residency. Dr. Mackaronis began learning Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in graduate school and found its theoretical basis and clinical application very powerful. She continued to seek ACT training experiences throughout her internship and postdoctoral fellowships, and is an active member of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (the professional association associated with ACT). Dr. Mackaronis often employs ACT with her patients at the VA for a variety of presenting concerns, and enjoys teaching its theory and application to supervisees and residents.

Course Objectives are that participants will walk away with the ability to:

1)      Articulate the six core processes that comprise the mechanism of change in ACT

2)      Identify for which presenting concerns ACT is an evidence-based treatment

3)      Utilize at least one ACT intervention with their patients

Chapter 1 has applied to the Washington State Psychological Association (WSPA) for approval of one hour (1 “CE”) of Psychological Continuing Education for attending Dr. Mackaronis’ presentation. WSPA is approved by the American Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists. Workshops offered by WSPA are recognized continuing education activities under the rules adopted by the Washington State Examining Board of Psychology and the Licensed Counselors Advisory Committee. WSPA maintains responsibility for the program.
