This two-day intensive skills development workshop is designed for those who are experienced in the delivery of ACT, and who have previously attended introductory and intermediate level training. Numbers are strictly limited to 20 and the bulk of the workshop will be conducted in small supervised practice groups of 5, each group working with each of the four facilitators in turn. It will focus on the development of a range of skills in delivering ACT in a supervised practice situation. The individual workshops will focus on particular in-session skills, including:

- using Relational Frame Theory to inform perspective taking interventions
- expanding the use of present moment awareness
- using Functional Analytic Psychotherapy to enhance the therapeutic relationship
- functional analysis of therapist behaviours

This workshop will be most suited to professionals who have undertaken previous training courses in ACT, either at The University of Birmingham or elsewhere, and who use the approach regularly. The workshop facilitators will assume that delegates have a knowledge of the ACT model and the core ACT processes. Experience of using ACT in practice is essential.

If you book onto this course, you will receive a free copy of Richard Bennett and Joe Oliver’s (2019) book ‘Acceptance & Commitment Therapy: 100 Key Points and Techniques’.
