The programs and workshops proposed by the Contextual Psychology Institue (CPI) do not give any “certification” ACT as such. We think the important thing is the quality of your training. We do not certify, accredit, or endorse ACT therapists, as this is contrary to ACBS values.

You can find all the professionals listed as an ACT therapist on the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS) website. These are ACBS members who have identified themselves as an ACT therapist and are available for consultation.

CPI is proud to support ACBS, the Association for a Contextual Behavioral Science ( We also support the Quebec ( and Ontario ( chapters of ACBS. Fast growing ACBS is a unique scientific community.

An island of cooperation in an often highly-competitive world, it brings together basic and applied scientists, practitioners, therapists, organizational consultants and folks interested in a psychological science better suited to the challenges facing our human societies. A values-based organization, you can join ACBS for as little as USD13 (or more in line with how you value the association) and get access to a treasure-trove of scientific articles, book chapters, presentations, podcasts and an international discussion forum where any question you can think of will be answered and where you’ll get to experience the power of a supportive scientific community. Finally, ACBS it’s also yearly World Conferences and other events, which are universally rated as the most fun you can have at a psychology conference. As our friend Kelly Wilson likes to say, the closest psychology gets to Rock and Roll!
