ACT at Work: Practitioner's Course - Goldsmiths University
Wed, 28 Feb 2018, 09:30 – Thu, 1 Mar 2018, 17:00 GMT
This course is designed as an introduction to ACT at work. Suitable participants include consultants, trainers, coaches, psychologists, human resources, and learning and development professionals.
For over 20 years, Goldsmiths’ academics have published peer-reviewed studies on the beneficial impacts that acceptance and commitment training (ACT) has on the performance and well being of staff. Making extensive use of mindfulness techniques, combined with goal setting, ACT is now an established, yet still cutting edge, psychological technology that can help both employees and their organisations achieve what matters to them. It does this by increasing an individual’s ability to work towards challenging goals despite experiencing difficulties and adversity along the way. In this course, you can learn how to deliver ACT training and coaching from international leaders in the area.
This course is aimed at individuals looking to use acceptance and commitment theory (ACT) based interventions with either groups or individuals in the workplace. Throughout the course we will provide an overview of ACT theory and research, with a specific focus on enhancing performance and wellbeing in a work context. Participants will have the opportunity to undertake exercises throughout the course, so they can experience ACT for themselves. This will include mindfulness practices, group-based exercises and individual activities.
