Event description

Description

After presenting successfully in international settings, Jodie is bringing her workshop to Sydney for the first time. Jodie will be sharing her unique use of ACT in a population that has proven particularly receptive to this well-established approach.

The workshop will move beyond the basics of working with ASD so participants are expected to already be familiar with ASD. The interactive workshop will include opportunities to practice skills experientially. Participants will take home resources for implementing practice immediately. In the spirit of ACT, Jodie will be providing all participants with a free copy of her 10-session ACT manual for practitioners working with anxious children.

The full-day workshop will include the following:

Morning:
Connecting with young people with ASD
Brief review of ACT

Introduction to CFACT (Compassion-Focused ACT ) and its role in anxiety management


Middle session:
Values- gateway to change

ASD and mood disorders

Applying the acceptance model to gaming, drugs and sensory processing difficulties.

Afternoon:
Self as Context- identity and separating from difficult self-perceptions

Social skills training via Committed Action

The role of mindfulness

Basics of a functional analysis for behaviour change

Lunch and morning tea provided in a stunning central venue
