Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Essentials

ACT Essentials (Acceptance & Commitment Therapy).

A 3-day course.

'Once in a while there is a unique contribution to psychotherapy.'

ACT adopts a new strategy that moves away from the 'rational strategies of behaviour and thought change' that many people have tried and failed with. Focusing mainly on how people understand and perpetuate their difficulties through language, ACT concentrates on exciting interventions based on metaphor and paradox, with experiential exercises to show how to break free of language traps, overcome common behavioural problems and enhance life satisfaction.
