Description
Old Joe from the South

ACT is an evidence-based transdiagnostic intervention that that has its origins in the behavioural tradition. It is concerned with helping individuals identify their vales and taking committed action in the service of them. ACT identifies key processes that enable individuals to develop greater ‘psychological flexibility’ and teaches skills that help to change the relationship between an individual and their experience.

This two day workshop for practitioners working in the field of physical and/or mental health care provides an introduction to the key principles of ACT, and of Relational Frame Theory, which underpins the theory and practice of ACT.

The workshop will take place between 9:30am and 4:30pm. There are 40 places available so please book early to avoid disappointment. Further information and booking.

Facilitators: Dr Richard Bennett & Mr Jim Lucas
