ACT and Mindfulness Consultation Group

Currently (Winter/Spring 2018), Sean Swaby of City University is running an ACT and Mindfulness Consultation Group at the City campus on the first Thursday of each month. The group has been well attended and takes the form of case discussion/review, discussion, application and demonstration of ACT and Mindfulness techniques and sharing of research and resources. Those interested in attending should contact Sean directly through the ACBS members directory.
