David Brillhart, PsyD
David C. Brillhart, PsyD is a licensed psychologist specializing in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and holds certifications in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Brainspotting (BSP) therapies. His success using ACT in conjunction with EMDR and BSP, has provided emotional and physical healing of chronic pain, trauma, and anger, with a wide range of individuals, couples, and groups in diverse clinical settings.
Dr. Brillhart has considerable forensic/correctional clinical experience using ACT with high-risk, special needs, and serious persistent mental illness offenders in maximum-security settings. His research in this area was presented at several national and international conferences; he is also internationally recognized for his expertise and workshop training on ACT. In 2017, Dr. Brillhart authored a book chapter on ACT in Individual Psychological Therapies in Forensic Settings (Davies & Nagi, Eds., 2017). And most recently, his full-day training, Mad as Hell: Gaining Control of Life Over Anger with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) was filmed and is available for DVD-distribution through PESI (2018).
Working with difficult-to-treat forensic and correctional offenders, and non-forensic clients with chronic trauma, emotional, and physical pain, has afforded Dr. Brillhart the opportunity to hone his ACT, EMDR, and BSP therapeutic skills. Dr. Brillhart earned his Master’s and Doctorate degrees in Clinical Psychology with Forensic Specialization from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology.
