An experiential introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Book your ticket at www.birmingham.ac.uk/actweek
ACT is an evidence-based, trans-diagnostic intervention that has its origins in the behavioural tradition. It is concerned with helping individuals identify their values 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 introduces the key principles of ACT, and the basic science of Relational Frame Theory, which informs the theory and practice of ACT.
This workshop is most suited to professionals who have some familiarity and experience of using psychological interventions, for example Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, in their work. No previous knowledge of ACT will be assumed.
