Monday 14 & Tuesday 15 September, 2020

You’ve learned about ACT assumptions and processes, and used ACT with clients.  Now it’s time for you to use ACT with more precision, flexibility and heart.

This two day workshop is for clinicians who have completed our ACT Introductory Workshop, or a 2 day equivalent by another ACT trainer. It will be thought-provoking, interesting and fun! Using demonstrations, experiential exercises, role-plays, real-plays and self-reflection, key workshop topics include:

  • Troubleshooting values
  • Increasing client awareness of self
  • Using RFT principles to sharpen your clinical observations and focus your therapy questions
  • Helping clients observe and track their own experiences
  • Developing your own psychological flexibility
  • ACT formulation
  • Maintaining an ACT stance

Sharpen Your Skills is limited to 36 participants. Registrations are open here.
