SPP 149: ACT for Treating Children with Dr. Tamar Black

Join #psychedpodcast as we continue to build our ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) skills! We are pleased to welcome Dr. Tamar Black to speak with us.

Tamar is an Educational & Developmental Psychologist who is an expert in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) with children, adolescents and young adults. She has worked as a school psychologist for 19 years and in private practice for 20 years, and has extensive experience providing counselling, conducting assessments, and supervising psychologists.

Tamar is also trained in Compassion Focused Therapy and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). She helps her clients achieve great results quickly, teaching life skills they can use for other issues in the future. Tamar works closely with parents, giving them quick and simple strategies to reinforce what she has taught their child. This helps the child take on the strategies learnt in therapy as part of their coping tool kit.
