Acceptance and Commitment Therapy course

ACT Essentials (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy training).

ACT Essentials is a 3-day course from APT, a leading independent provider of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) training courses in Canada. We bring this APT-Accredited course to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (Refresher course also available.)

Executive Summary:

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) adopts a new strategy that moves away from the 'rational strategies of behavior 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 behavioral problems and enhance life satisfaction.

Option 2: 'Train the Trainer':

If you or a colleague are a senior professional (e.g. consultant psychologist) and have a talent for communication and teaching, then you are welcome to apply to become an APT-accredited tutor. You could then tutor the course - or your chosen modules from it - in your own organisation, under license.

This is not only a highly appropriate use of senior professionals, but it also saves your organisation the tutor-component of the fee (around 50%) each time you run it or your chosen modules.
