Applying ACT to Ourselves: A self-practice and self-reflection workshop

Go Back


 Do you want to learn about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) by applying it to yourself? The literature on Self-Practice / Self-Reflection (see Bennett-Levy et al) suggests that using techniques on our own difficult thoughts and feelings deepens our empathy for clients, develops meta-competences and improves our practice as therapists.

This workshop is intended for those relatively new to ACT and will provide an experiential introduction to the key concepts of this third-wave CBT approach. You will learn about the over-arching trans-diagnostic basis of ACT, how you can apply it to any disorder and through self-practice of key ACT interventions you will learn how to apply these to your clinical work with clients whilst simultaneously developing your skills in self-reflection.

A basic understanding of CBT and of mindfulness is advantageous to benefit from attending the workshop although some time will be allocated to discussing the underpinning theory.

By the end of the workshop delegates will have been introduced to the ACT ‘Hexaflex’ and practiced skills in:

• Defusion

• Identifying and clarifying Values

• Specific and everyday Mindfulness practices
