Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

This course has no current classes. Please the waiting list.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidenced-based form of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Unlike other models of psychotherapy, ACT does not target symptom reduction, but aims to maximise a person’s potential to create a meaningful and full life by using processes such as mindfulness, acceptance and value-driven action.

At this workshop you will learn:

  • The six core principles of ACT and how to use them clinically
  • Case conceptualisation skills from an ACT perspective
  • Tools to develop psychological flexibility, acceptance and willingness
  • An understanding of mindfulness and how to use it therapeutically
  • How to effectively utilise ACT in a wide variety of clinical problems
  • How to effectively use interventions based on metaphor, paradox and experiential exercises
  • How to apply ACT in your own life, to prevent worker burnout, manage the stressors of challenging clients and enhance the therapeutic relationship
  • How to help clients connect with their values and take committed action
  • How to change your relationship with unwanted thoughts and feelings
  • How to bring self compassion into the therapy room

Who should attend?

Anyone providing counselling, psychotherapeutic or casework services who wish to explore introductory ACT
