Are you looking for a fresh approach to support someone's mental well-being? The most widely used approach, CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), does not work with everyone; especially those who have a history of trauma, people with more complex mental health needs or those with learning difficulties. ACT is different from CBT and may be the approach you need to help someone make lasting changes in their relationship with their thoughts, emotions and therefore their behaviour. ACT is a very effective behavioural therapy strongly based in mindfulness. It was accepted by the NICE clinical guidelines in 2017. It is proving to be extremely effective when supporting someone who is struggling to manage their emotions, e.g suffering from anxiety, intrusive thoughts, anger outbursts or compulsive behaviour. In this session you will be introduced to the basic principles and shown how you can use them to support a student, client, service user, family member or even yourself. This three-hour online training session is delivered by FACE Lead Facilitator, Jane Keyworth. Jane will explain the theory and give plenty of opportunity to practice and discuss the skills included. All attendees receive an accredited CPD certificate that can be added to their CPD portfolio.
