Are you a therapist with an interest in third wave approaches? Are you curious about concepts such as values and acceptance?   If so, then this webinar  is for you!

ACT  uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with behaviour change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility.  It is concerned with helping individuals identify what is important to them and taking committed action in order that their behaviour is more consistent with their values.  ACT also promotes skills that help to change the relationship between an individual and their experience.  It is rapidly developing a wide-ranging evidence base across numerous areas of clinical practice.

This 2-hour clinical skills workshop is designed for practitioners working in physical/mental health care who want to enhance and develop their practice by developing skills in values procedures. The workshop will focus on helping practitioners develop their knowledge and skills around one aspect of the psychological flexibility model, namely helping clients to identify and clarify their values. This work helps clients work out what matters most to them in life and can inform goals and between session tasks, making them more meaningful and purposeful.

You will learn:

  • To meaningfully differentiate values from goals
  • Techniques to engage clients in exploring their values to drive purposeful life change
  • Skills for promoting acceptance in the service of living a richer, fuller, and more meaningful life
  • Skills to translate values into powerful goals and specific actions

What equipment do I need?

You just need a computer (PC or Mac), laptop or tablet that can access the internet. You need a good broadband speed that would allow you to comfortably stream a movie (such as a video on YouTube).

How do I deal with any technical issues that come up?

We will have dedicated technicians on hand throughout the entire duration of the workshop. They will be there to help you manage any issues that may come up and get you back in to the workshop again. Also, if you think there may be a problem, be it with your work access or anything else, you can log in early to check if things are working for you, and be prepared.

There may of course be technical issues that come up on your end, which will be your responsibility to look after. But these are rare and we have an extra handy troubleshooting guide that comes with tips and tricks to deal with any problems.
