Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Jason Roscoe
A Beginners Guide to ACT

This seminar is intended for those completely new to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and will provide an experiential and theoretical introduction to the key concepts of this third-wave Cognitive-Behavioural approach.

You will learn:
The over-arching trans-diagnostic basis of ACT
A brief summary of the evidence base

How you can apply it to any common mental health disorder and learn a range of introductory ACT techniques for enacting change with clients.
A basic understanding of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy principles and of mindfulness is advantageous but not essential in order to benefit from attending the seminar.
