This advanced level 6 week specialty course teaches you how to adapt ACT for young people. A host of world-renowned experts on the use of ACT with youth – including Darin Cairns (Australia), Chris McCurry (USA), and Sheri Turrell (Canada) – will share, explain and illustrate their approaches to treating adolescents (from age 10 to 19).
Each week you’ll get to watch therapy sessions where one or two of our experts demonstrate specific youth-focussed ACT interventions – and Russ will take you through an in-depth, step-by-step analysis of every technique and strategy, and the theory behind it.
This action-packed and interactive 6 week course allows you total flexibility to learn whenever it suits you. Two and a half hours of new core content will be released week by week over 6 weeks, with additional access for 28 days after the course finishes, so you can watch videos again, catch up after a vacation, or download a select range of powerful resources that simply aren’t available anywhere else.
Russ and his team of experts will take you step-by-step through adapting the ACT model for adolescents, in a way that is both engaging and entertaining. Prepare to experience Russ’s unique and engaging teaching style, direct-to-camera, supported by delightful animations of key ACT metaphors along the way.
You’ll watch annotated videos of real therapy sessions, engage with audio exercises and reading materials, participate in online forums with other participants, answer multi-choice quizzes that test your learning as you go, plus a whole lot more.
The entire course has been carefully designed with professional learners in mind, to ensure that you gain a comprehensive and practical grounding in the theory and application of ACT, which you can immediately put into practice with your young clients.
