Description

Professionals Only or if you have have attended at least one previous 1-day workshop.


ACT develops psychological flexibility in clients, through the development of mindfulness skills, and guides them towards acting in accordance to their core values to create a meaningful life. Another way of thinking about ACT is: Accept, Connect andTake action.


ACT teaches six key skills:

  1. Connection to the "here and now": Be more connected in our conversations, relationships, activities and actions.

  2. Defusion: recognise and “unhook” from unhelpful thoughts and thinking patterns.

  3. Willingness and Compassion: manage our emotions more effectively while taking action even in the presence of pain.

  4. Perspective taking: see the bigger picture, having a more flexible view of self, others and the world.

  5. Value: recognise and connect to what matters most.

  6. Meaningful ACTion: consistently take steps, no matter how small, towards who and where we want to be.


Course Objectives:

  • An additional full day workshop for professionals aimed at extending your knowledge of ACT and placing the focus on applying it with your clients.
