An Introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Time & Location
About The Event
This two-day course introduces you experientially to this research-based , behavioural model that incorporates mindfulness into everyday life.
ACT is a great model for short-term, directive work for clients with single issues such as anxiety, depression, OCD and stress.
What will I learn on this course?
Over the two day training you will learn about the six main components of ACT.
The course will also discuss how to connect with these components and bring them into your own life and work. Ian will describe a simple model that brings all the components of ACT together in one, easy to understand diagram.
The course will be taught with a combination of discussion, group work and experiential learning. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore how the theory fits with your life and how you can apply it in context.
The course will be delivered by Ian Tomlinson PTSTA(P), the director of The Affinity Centre. Ian incorporates ACT into all his client work with individuals and couples. He is a UKCP registered Certified Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist and has two decades of teaching experience.
You will finish the course with techniques that you can use straight away.
Who is this course for?
You might be a counsellor or therapist who has heard about the model and wants to know more and experience it yourself.
If you work with people or want a rich fulfilling life then this course is for you.
Ian will keep the technical jargon out and explain the theory in simple (but not simplistic) language.
CPD Hours: 11
