Making Waves: Advanced Training Workshop
Mon. 19 June 2017, 9:30 am – 4:00 pm AEST
This one-day workshop is a follow on from the Making Waves introductory session and clinicians should complete the introduction before attending this advanced session. The training is suitable for clinicians with five or more years of experience who would like to explore how to use acceptance, mindfulness and values-based action approaches with a wide range of clients, including those with severe emotional and interpersonal difficulties.
The workshop will provide an opportunity for a more in-depth exploration of the use of values awareness, defusion, emotion acceptance and choice points with AOD clients who have severe emotional and interpersonal difficulties. The advanced training will have a greater focus on practicing techniques and exploring the issues that arise in participants’ clinical work.
