Event description

Description

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Based on Relational Frame Theory, ACT is an evidence-based psychological intervention utilising six core processes: acceptance, self as context, present moment focus, values and committed action. ACT clients and practitioners learn how to make healthy contact with thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations that may previously have been feared and avoided. The aim is increased psychological flexibility, supporting full and conscious contact with the present moment, and the ability to flexibly change or persist in behaviours in line with your values.

The Workshop

This 2-day workshop will guide participants through an understanding of the assumptions and theories underpinning the ACT model and a practical understanding of the model itself. The content will include a focus on how to skilfully use mindfulness within the ACT model to benefit both client and clinician.

Participants will be provided with numerous tools to facilitate and support the use of ACT and mindfulness in therapeutic contexts including metaphors, activities, mindfulness scripts and other resources. The aim is to provide attendees with hands-on, accessible knowledge and skills to get started with ACT, or to breathe new life into your current ACT practice.

The workshop is suitable to practitioners or students of psychology, other mental health practitioners and a broad range of helping professions.
