Event Description: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a mindfulness-based behavioural model of psychotherapy that has two major goals:
- To encourage and support people in accepting unwanted thoughts and feelings that they have no control over.
- To identify what's important in life and take action towards these values.
ACT is a powerful model used to treat issues like anxiety, depression, intrusive thoughts, stress, anger, relationship issues and OCD.
What will I learn on this course?
Over the two-day training you will learn about the six main components of ACT. The course will also discuss how to connect with these components and bring them into your own life and work.
The course will be taught with a combination of discussion, group work and experiential learning. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore how the theory fits with your life and how you can apply it in context.
What qualifications will I need to attend the course?
None. If you have heard about ACT and want to learn more this course is a great place to start. You might want to learn about a different way of thinking about life because you have felt frustrated and stuck.
You might be a counsellor or therapist who has heard about the model and wants to know more and experience it yourself.
If you work with people or want a rich fulfilling life then this course is for you.
Technical jargon will be kept to a minimum, with the theory explained in simple (but not simplistic) language.
