Event Details

ANZ ACBS invites you to a 2-day Skills Intensive workshop at the Hunter Centre located on the corner of Frederick and Great King Streets in Dunedin, New Zealand.

This workshop will help participants use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with more precision, flexibility and heart in the clinical room. It will develop clinicians' own psychological flexibility, help clinicians slow down and really notice important things happening in the room and increase the variety in the way that clinicians use the hexaflex. The training includes clinical application of Relational Frame Theory, improving clients' selfing abilities and reconnecting with what it's like to be a client. Incorporating cultural awareness into your clinical work will also be a focus of the two days.

The workshop will involve a mixture of didactic teaching, demonstrations, experiential exercises, role-plays, real-plays and self-reflection.

 

FAQs

Who are the workshop trainers?

Giselle Bahr and Ben Sedley are clinical psychologists and co-founders of the Wellington ACT Centre. They have been using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in their practice for over 10 years, and have been trained and supervised by many of the world’s leading ACT therapists and researchers. Giselle and Ben have both worked at Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, in Private Practice with adults and adolescents, and trained new clinical psychology students at Victoria University of Wellington. Giselle facilitates groups introducing ACT to Parents. Ben is the author of the book Stuff that Sucks: Accepting what you can’t change and Committing to what you can.

Co-author of "Postpartum Depression and Anxiety: the Ultimate Survival Guide" with consumer advocate Sonya Watson, Kathryn has practised ACT for fifteen years, specialising in perinatal and youth. With a particular interest in bicultural applications and integration of ACT, Kathryn has presented bicultural workshops with Donna Roberts (Pūkenga Atawhai) and chaired the Māori Accessibility Hui at Mothers and Babies for five years.

Why is the event registration fee in Australian dollars and not New Zealand dollars?

The fees for this event were converted from New Zealand dollars to Australian dollars due to tax complications in a multi-national organisation. We are working to resolve this for the ANZ ACBS Conference that will be held in Auckland in 2020, however, there are multiple conversations with government departments, accountants, etc, while we sort this out, and we wanted to get this event to you as soon as possible.

 

Are scholarships available?

Yes. Applicants must complete an application detailing their motivations to attend the workshop, as well as a plan for how to use the knowledge gained at the workshop in the pursuit of their careers.

The deadline for scholarship application submissions is Friday, August 30th by 11:59 pm (New Zealand Standard Time). No submissions will be allowed after the deadline. Incomplete submissions will be disqualified. Notifications of scholarship recipients will be made in mid-September.
