The Professional Training Unit of the Department of Social Sciences of the University of Nicosia organizes a 2-day hands-on course on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), for psychologists, psychology students, medics, nurses, teachers, social workers, physiotherapists, and human resources professionals.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a treatment package that combines several traditions such as early behaviourism, positive psychology and mindfulness.
ACT is a trans-diagnostic model that has been successfully used to treat conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, eating disorders and substance misuse just to name a few.
ACT’s target is to promote psychological flexibility, that is, the ability to behave in a way that is consistent with one’s values even in the presence of aversive experiences (e.g. thoughts, feelings, physical pain). This is true as much for our
clients as for the ACT practitioner.
At the end of this workshop, you will be able to begin to apply some ACT techniques in your own professional context. If you work in a context in which behaviour change is paramount, then this course will provide you with some very useful tools.
Price of the Course
The price of the course varies for professionals and students, see leaflet for details.
