Overview

Thursday 4th Feb & Thursday  11th  Feb, 2021
Workshop times: 8.30am to 3.30pm GMT/UTC
ONLINE WORKSHOP  + recording available after
Presenter: Dr Russ Harris
Please note: you can still access the recording for 3 weeks even if you are not able to make the live event

The introductory workshop is very experiential, and useful for both therapists and coaches.
Russ likes to call it ‘ACT Made Simple‘ – because it covers so much material in such a short space of time.
The workshop is a ‘jargon-free zone’ guided by three core values: simplicity, clarity, and accessibility.
(There’s also a big emphasis on having fun).

You will experience a wide variety of ACT exercises, and you will be encouraged to work with your own personal issues. You will be led through these exercises in the same way as you would instruct them to your clients.

You will also receive extensive support materials (more so than in any other ACT training around the world) including  an album of professionally-recorded mp3s of key mindfulness skills, and a 3-months-long follow up e-course.

  • The six core principles of ACT, and how to adapt them to different clinical populations

About the Presenter

Dr Russ Harris: Medical Practitioner – Psychotherapist – Executive Coach 

Russ Harris, author of the international best-selling self-help book ‘The Happiness Trap’, is a 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.

Since 2005, Russ has run over 600 two-day workshops and provided ACT training for over 35,000 health professionals, including therapists, coaches, counsellors, doctors, and psychologists. He has authored three ACT textbooks (ACT Made Simple, Getting Unstuck in ACT, ACT Questions & Answers), and six ACT-based self-help books, including The Reality Slap, The Confidence Gap, and ACT with Love. His first book, The Happiness Trap, is now the best-selling ACT book in the world – with over one million copies sold, and translations into more than 30 languages. (To download the opening chapter, click here.)

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. (In fact, he even has even written an introductory text book on ACT, titled ‘ACT Made Simple’. To download the first chapter, click here.) Russ 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.
