Overview

Presenter: Dr. Joe Oliver

Do you work with clients who experience distressing psychosis? Wondering how ACT – and mindfulness in general – can help? Want to help your clients more effectively manage distressing symptoms so they can lead full, rich and meaningful lives? ACTp is a powerful behavioural approach that incorporates acceptance and mindfulness techniques to help people to disentangle from difficult thoughts, feelings or distressing experiences in order to engage in behaviours that are guided by personal values.

In this workshop, Joe will introduce the core skills and knowledge to help people recover from psychosis, using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Psychosis (ACTp).

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn how the problems of psychosis can be conceptualised using the ACT model
  • Learn how ACTp can be a pragmatic treatment for people with early and established psychosis as well as carers of people with psychosis
  • Understand how to use ACT metaphors and exercises adapted for treatment of psychosis
  • Understand key skills in facilitating ACTp in individual and group-based settings

You will receive:

  • The full manual used in the “ACT for Life” group interventions for psychosis trial (Johns, Oliver et al., 2015).
  • A 30% discount of the new book, “ACT for Psychosis Recovery”
