An in-depth, integrated approach to healing from trauma
If you want to help your clients find safety and security in their bodies, unlearn old physical responses to trauma, overcome hyperarousal and hypoarousal, shift from self-hatred to self-compassion, work mindfully with body memory, break free from dissociation, and learn how to build develop rich and meaningful lives …. this 2-day masterclass is for you.
This advanced-level ACT training is intensely practical, with a major emphasis on working with the body and limbic system. Sadly many therapists don’t realise that ACT is a powerful somatic therapy, ideal for working flexibly and creatively with the body (which is, of course, where so much trauma is “imprinted”). This masterclass will show you how to use ACT in a deeper, holistic, integrative way, to work flexibly with body, mind and emotion.
In these two days, you’ll discover a treasure-trove of simple but powerful tools, techniques and processes that you can immediately start using to enhance your work with the entire spectrum of trauma-related dysfunction, and speed your clients to post-traumatic growth.
You’ll go deeper into the ACT model and learn how to adapt and enhance it to effectively address all the common problems of trauma therapy: dissociation, flashbacks, numbness, nightmares, hyperarousal, hypoarousal, fractured sense of self, shame, self-hatred, aggression, addiction, hopelessness, social withdrawal, intimacy issues, emotional dysregulation and more.
This course will help you become more flexible, fluent and creative in ACT, so you can work effectively not just with PTSD but with the entire spectrum of trauma-related issues: simple, complex, acute or chronic.

Russ Harris, author of the international best-selling self-help book ‘The Happiness Trap’, is an world-renowned trainer of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). Russ’s background is in medicine. As a GP he became increasingly interested in the psychological aspects of health and wellbeing, and increasingly disenchanted with writing prescriptions. Ultimately this interest led to a total career change. He now works in two different, yet complementary roles – as a therapist and as a coach – with over 12,000 hours of one-on-one sessions under his belt.
Since 2005, Russ has provided ACT training for over 15,000 Australian therapists, coaches, counselors, doctors, and other health professionals. He has authored two ACT textbooks (including ACT Made Simple). The Happiness Trap is now the most widely-translated ACT book in the world, available in over thirty countries and twenty-two languages.
Russ has a unique model for training, which he calls ‘ACT Made Simple’, because it covers so much material in a short space of time. He proudly proclaims each workshop a ‘jargon-free zone’ – and bases his training on three core values: simplicity, clarity, and having fun. His highly-acclaimed ACT workshops are brief, powerful, cost-effective and life-enhancing. Participants regularly report not only major improvements in their therapy and/or coaching, but also in their personal lives – and evaluation forms frequently praise his ability to make complex ideas seem very simple.
