The simple way to transform clients’ relationship with their painful emotions

“I want to change, but I’m just too anxious.”

The secret (and super effective way) to respond to your client’s statement of “fact” is easy...

Reframe their thought using the power of “and.”

“You want to change, AND you’re anxious about it.”

This subtle verbal and cognitive shift is the essence of the evidence-based Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) approach. It acknowledges that two things can be true at once, and empowers clients to take action without first changing or eliminating their feelings.

And it's no wonder why ACT is exploding in popularity — it's helped clinicians around the world significantly improve outcomes with even the toughest cases of anxiety, depression, trauma, personality disorders, addictions, and more.

And now you can easily learn the fundamentals of ACT from researcher, lecturer, and fellow clinician, Renata Porzig-Drummond PhD, BSc.

Register for her new online training today and she will guide you step by step through ACT methods & interventions.

With an emphasis in practical applications and clinical context, you'll leave this training with the confidence to implement what you have learned in your very next session.

Don't wait! Register today to discover how you can help clients accept their emotions as appropriate responses to trauma — so they can finally break the cycle of harmful behaviour.

Frequently Asked Questions about this Training
 

This seminar has been designed to extend the clinical knowledge and applied skills of Psychologists, Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Coaches, Social Workers and Psychiatrists who work with individuals and couples who are experiencing distress in their relationships.

 

ACT moves beyond the traditional focus of problems and solutions, by teaching clients to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their emotions and to instead, accept that their feelings are normal and appropriate responses to circumstances.

This results in both a change in self-talk and action/verbal behaviour for clients. Further, clients begin to accept the issues they face, while committing to making the necessary changes in their behaviour.
