Are your current techniques just not working?
You’ve experienced the frustration; you have a client who seems to just not break through. You’ve tried your best, but the outcome is the same: he or she progresses for a while, then regresses again.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is the popular transdiagnostic approach that you can integrate into your practice to achieve positive therapeutic outcomes with difficult-to-treat clients.
Watch ACT expert and presenter Daniel J. Moran, as he delivers an exercise and intervention-heavy course that will give you the tools you need to more effectively treat clients with PTSD, anxiety, depression or personality disorders.
You’ll learn how ACT weaves mindfulness strategies with cognitive-behavioural change strategies to revolutionise client outcomes, as well as discover a variety of ACT techniques for helping clients who are struggling to make difficult behaviour changes due to the presence of painful thoughts, feelings and memories.
By shifting client focus to their own values, ACT sets clients up to embrace behaviour change that is meaningful to them while simultaneously fostering skills that allow clients to more effectively handle impulsive actions based on current thoughts or emotions.
Dr. Moran will guide you step-by-step through highly practical, evidence-based ACT skills that you can apply in your practice immediately!
This online program is worth 6.25 hours CPD.
