Anxiety disorders are common, chronic, and disabling. In this intensive 2-day workshop, mental health professionals learn about the practical application of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as a way to transform the suffering associated with major anxiety disorders.
ACT is an evidence-based approach that balances mindfulness and acceptance processes with commitment and behavior change in the service of living a more vital life. Through lectures, live and video demonstrations, and practical experiential exercises, participants learn ways to help their clients live well, richly, and meaningfully, without first having to defeat or eliminate sources of emotional and psychological pain.
This work can be challenging for both therapists and clients alike because it calls us to stand in difficult places and open up to that difficulty, without struggle or resistance, as we create a life that matters to us and our clients. Participants will be encouraged to engage the material at a personal level, as it applies to their own lives, and then also in the context of their clinical work. Worksheets and other practical tools will be provided.
Led by a dynamic husband and wife team, this workshop will introduce ACT, both as a model and intervention technology, and illustrate its use across the spectrum of anxiety-related concerns.
John and Jamie have trained thousands of mental health professionals in the practical use of ACT. They are known to infuse their teaching and trainings with energy, humility and compassion, and their down-to earth workshops are consistently praised for their clarity, depth, and practical utility. Together, they offer what promises to be a powerfully unique and dynamic ACT training experience. John and his wife Jamie regularly give ACT talks and workshops to the public and professionals in the United States and abroad. They are well known for offering intensive week-long retreat-style ACT trainings at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY, the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, CA, and the Cape Cod Institute in Eastham, MA, where John and Jamie are members of the teaching faculty. In 2020, Jamie and John will be offering a week-long training at Kripalu in MA, dates to be determined.
Un repas style Boîte à lunch est inclus sur l’heure du dîner pour les deux jours de formation. Le dîner se déroule sur place au Centre St-Pierre de 12h et 13h.
