Intermediate Training In Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

A Six-Part Course

The intermediate Training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) follows on from the Introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy two-day course.

This course is primarily aimed at practicing counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists who want to introduce the ACT model in a consistent way into their client work.

What is taught in this training?

The training consists of six 3 hour sessions over a six-month period. The training will involve a combination of:

  • Experiential exercises (mindfulness)
  • Teaching of theory and discussion of how it relates to client work
  • Skills practise in break-out rooms
  • ACT supervision and discussion of use of ACT with current clients

By the end of the course you will be confident with using ACT in your practice with clients.

The course comes with a certificate for 18 hours of CPD.

Cannot recommend this course enough!

It's suited to all modalities.  Thoroughly enjoyable and extremely well taught.
