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.
Each 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 lead 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 a free copy of Russ’s ACT-based self-help book The Happiness Trap, an album of professionally-recorded mp3s of key mindfulness skills, and a 3-months-long follow up e-course.
You will receive:
Dr Russ Harris: Medical Practitioner – Psychotherapist – Executive Coach
Russ Harris, author of the best-selling self-help book ‘The Happiness Trap‘, is an internationally-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, and he now works in two different, yet complementary roles: both as a therapist and as a coach.
Since 2005, Russ has provided ACT training for over 21,000 therapists, coaches, counselors, doctors, and other health professionals. He has also authored 4 ACT-based self-help books, and two ACT textbooks. The Happiness Trap, is now the most widely-translated ACT book in the world, available in over thirty languages, half a million copies sold. (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 two chapters, click here.) 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.
