Two-day INTERMEDIATE level ACT Made Simple workshop
Central London on 8th & 9th July
Boost your current practice with this extremely accessible popular 2-day
This INTERMEDIATE level workshop will cover case conceptualisation in both clinical
populations: how to conceptualise any client problem in terms of the ACT model,
such as depression, anxiety, addiction to non-clinical issues such as work stress,
fear of failure and low self-confidence. It also covers working with mandated or
getting unstuck (for both clients and therapists); ‘selling ACT’ to your clients;
getting to values when
your client says ‘I don’t know’; overcoming resistance and motivating the unmotivated;
resentment; compassion and forgiveness.
This workshop is full of experiential exercises and shares fantastic tools for trans-diagnostic
conceptualisation, interrupting disruptive in-session behaviour, staying on track
Registrants are required to have attended introductory level training.
Two-day ADVANCED level ACT BOOT CAMP
Central London on 10th & 11th July
Take your ACT skills to the next level with this 2-day hands-on,
skills-building “boot camp”.
In this 2-day intensive ‘hands-on’ workshop, you will get to play
around with all sorts of useful tools, techniques and strategies,
experiment with new ways of working, and discover for yourself just
how creative, spontaneous, and adaptable ACT can be.
You’ll see plenty of live demonstrations, and participate in numerous
innovative exercises. You will get to do numerous role-play activities
in dyads and triads, and experiment with creating, modifying and
adapting ACT techniques to suit your own personal style. This will be
challenging, engaging, and lots of fun! In particular, you’ll be exposed
to brand new never-seen-before material from Russ’s forthcoming
textbook, Sessions with IMPACT: Interpersonal Mindulness Skills in
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. For example, you’ll learn how
to use the four key IMPACT questions, and the ‘S.L.O.W’ technique
to instigate, model and reinforce psychological fl exibility throughout
every session, and how to rapidly spot and target ‘The Four Horsemen
of Fusion & Avoidance’ - Gating, Baiting, Skating and Stating.
So if you come prepared to apply yourself fully and leap in at the
deep end, you will finish these two days with a big increase in your
confidence about doing ACT.
Registrants are required to have attended intermediate level training.
