Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
(A practical workshop exploring some of the latest developments in mindfulness-based therapeutic interventions)
ACT has been scientifically researched and proven to be effective in helping people with a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression and chronic pain. Even those with severe psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia have gained remarkable benefit. It has also produced similarly high levels of success with some of the less serious conditions which we may encounter in our day-to-day work, such as smoking cessation, weight reduction and reducing stress. The high level of supporting scientific evidence has ensured that ACT has grown in popularity as a form of psychological treatment around the world.
This energetic, workshop style training is great for mindfulness teachers, hypnotherapists, counsellors and life coaches.
With a full set of notes and slides, the course teaches the primary structure and protocols of ACT, including:
Six core principles of psychological inflexibility - an ACT model of psychopathology
Six core principles for psychological flexibility - core therapeutic processes of ACT
Scripts and script development ideas
Templates for worksheets
Metaphors for creative interventions
A session by session approach with ACT
Guide to integration with other therapeutic approaches
