If you or your clients are feeling stuck, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) can give you a bigger perspective on the dynamics of why and where the inertia is happening.
ACT is an evidence-based approach that can incorporate any other effective intervention. Acceptance processes, which include mindfulness, help clients let go of struggles with their own internal experiences with strong thoughts and feelings. Commitment processes help clients clarify and move toward their own values in the service of living a more meaningful life.
Join experienced ACT presenter Dr. Richard Sears as he delivers an exercise and technique-heavy course that will give you the tools needed to more effectively treat clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, and personality disorders. Richard will teach you the main concepts of ACT, including mindfulness, acceptance, and defusion–demonstrating how these create greater psychological flexibility. Discover a variety of techniques for helping clients who are struggling to make difficult behaviour changes due to the presence of painful thoughts, feelings, and memories. You will learn how to effectively use metaphors, custom techniques, and experiential exercises to help your clients identify their values and translate them into behaviour goals.
Through lecture, case examples, and experiential exercises, you will be able to integrate ACT techniques and skills in your practice immediately!
