Course Description

You will have access to the recording  for 6 months

Covid-19 has affected all of us in so many ways, both personally and professionally. As Health and Social Care professionals, we might find ourselves supporting a range of people:

  • Someone grieving for a loved one who died, or other COVID related changes & losses (employment, contact with relatives,  altered life plans)
  • A person with ongoing ‘Long Covid’ fatigue and breathlessness, unable to resume their old life
  • An ITU nurse or doctor, still affected by the things they saw, the choices they had to make,
  • Ourselves, dealing with any or all of the above

Though these may look like quite separate problems, ‘transdiagnostic’ approaches such as Acceptance & Commitment Therapy allow us to see the common factors, and bring the same therapeutic skills to bear.

In this 2 hour workshop, we will focus on the benefits of one aspect of the ACT approach,  the concept of Values: what really matters to a person, what they want their life to be about.

Through a combination of presentations, reflective exercises and discussion, participants will learn:

  • How Values relate to life-changing experiences, including our own
  • How they can help us build a new, fulfilling existence even after trauma and/or chronic health problems
  • How to identify key Values rapidly within sessions
  • The relationship between Values and acceptance
  • The role of Values in learning to cope with traumatic memories
  • How Values can act as ‘compass bearings’ to choose new life-directions
  • How to use Values to inform effective goal-setting to move forward

It will be suitable for a wide range of health and social care providers who find themselves supporting others with the impact of Covid.

No previous knowledge or experience of using Acceptance & Commitment Therapy is required
