The Head, Heart and Hands of ACT: A Theoretical, Experiential and Practical Introduction to the Application of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Common Mental Health Problems

Go Back


Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is an evidence-based psychotherapeutic intervention rooted in the behavioural tradition. Now with over 250 RCTs demonstrating its effectiveness for a wide range of psychological health problems, ACT kits Mental Health Practitioners with a sophisticated set of relevant tools and techniques.

For those therapists already familiar with the application of CBT, REBT, DBT or Solution-Focused Therapy, ACT will sit comfortably alongside your usual ways of working. And yet, ACT offers something distinct and powerful.

Parented by Contextual Behavioural Science, ACT adopts a pragmatic approach to human suffering. By concerning itself with ‘what works’, ACT teaches clients how to increase Psychological Flexibility. Made-up of six discrete and interrelated behavioural processes, psychological flexibility leads to significant improvements in well-being and functioning at both an individual and interpersonal level.

This workshop will take place across 3 days – 2 consecutive days and then a 3rd day 4 weeks later. This format will give delegates the opportunity to learn enough about ACT so they can begin using it with clients right away. Day 3 expands the depth and precision of your skills by building on your experiences of putting it into practice.
