Event description
An experiential workshop for practitioners with an interest in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

About this Event

This workshop will help you to:

Move away from a mechanistic approach to therapy• Understand the “FIX IT” (control) agenda• Identify the “stuck” or psychological processes and the functions of the “FIX ITS”• Develop a formulation matrix to identify “NOT WANTS” and “FIX ITS”, develop a “Towards” direction and identify “Towards” behaviours• Focus interventions on excavating psychological skills to create workable and sustainable behaviour change through “Towards” behaviours.

The workshop will be a mixture of didactic teaching and small groups focused on skills development. We would ask that you are willing to bring some of your own "stuff" to work with, because it's only when we are willing to do the work ourselves that we are truly able to work with our clients in an ACT-consistent way.

Workshop Facilitators:

We are a group of ACT practitioners who have been working and meeting together in a peer-supervision group for about 10 years. We come from a variety of backgrounds; counsellors, clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, counselling psychologists, all with training in different therapeutic modalities. We have been steeped in the ACT - Matrix; and for many years had as our mentor Mark Webster, one of the creators of the Matrix. We share a passion for functional-contextual psychotherapy and have indeed "done the work" on ourselves, and continue to do so. We don't claim to be experts, rather, we are experienced in making mistakes and improving from them. Our shared purpose is to work with people to help them live their best lives, whatever life throws at them.

Philippa Beckwith, Beverly Coghlan, Shirley Croft, Lucy Dorey, Lydia King, Barbara Guthrie, Meriel Marshall, Laura Merrett.

Refreshments, a light lunch and parking are all included.
