Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an emerging transdiagnostic psychotherapeutic approach for the treatment of long-term chronic conditions, including Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI), such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome or Inflammatory Bowel Diseases. Using an experiential approach, this session intends to introduce practitioners to the ACT model of case conceptualization in DGBIs. Further to that, a brief description of the model of intervention will also be provided, alongside some brief ACT consistent practices that can be easily incorporated into current patient management.

About the Rome Foundation
The Rome Foundation is an independent not for profit 501(c) 3 organization that provides support for activities designed to create scientific data and educational information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of Disorders of Gut-Brain Interaction (DGBI). Our mission is to improve the lives of people with DGBI.
Over the last 19 years, the Rome organization has sought to legitimize and update our knowledge of the DGBIs. This has been accomplished by bringing together scientists and clinicians from around the world to classify and critically appraise the science of gastrointestinal function and dysfunction. This knowledge permits clinical scientists to make recommendations for diagnosis and treatment that can be applied in research and clinical practice.
