This 6-week long course will take you from “chunky clunky ACT” to “fluent, flexible ACT”. You’ll go deeper into the ACT model, take your ACT skills to the next level, and learn specific methods for depression and anxiety disorders. You’ll learn about common stumbling blocks and sticking points, and how to quickly get around them. And you’ll discover a wealth of practical tools and strategies to effectively target depression – both major depressive disorder and dysthymia – and the full range of anxiety disorders from OCD & phobias to social anxiety & panic disorder. (Note: we don’t cover trauma in this training. That’s such a huge topic, we’ve created a whole course on it: ACT & Mindfulness for Trauma).
As with all our courses, the online format gives you total flexibility to learn whenever it suits you, and access a whole range of powerful resources that simply aren’t available anywhere else. 2.5 hours of new content will be released, week-by-week, over a 6-week period. Plus, on top of that, you’ll have an extra 4 weeks of access to the whole course – so you can watch all your favourite videos again. (And if you’ve fallen behind due to sickness, or taking a vacation, or work commitments etc, this will give you plenty of time to catch up). 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 depressed and anxious clients.
