Event description

Description

This introductory ACT training will be of use for clinicians working with clients in a variety of settings both in brief and long-term therapeutic relationships. ACT is an emerging cognitive behaviour therapy, based upon unique philosophical and theoretical foundations. The stance of mindfulness and acceptance, central to ACT, reduces the power of thoughts and feelings and supports clients to take their life in a direction that matters.

The focus of the morning session will be on familiarizing participants with the ACT model. While there will be some didactic presentation of the therapeutic processes that underlie ACT, participants will learn the model mostly from the "inside – out," through experiential exercises and role-play. There will be a focus on values work, which can be integrated with other treatment modalities. The afternoon will provide an introduction to the ACT Matrix, a unique sorting tool that can be used for assessment, formulation, and treatment – with an emphasis on experiential exercises and role play.
