This highly practical and experiential workshop will introduce participants to the fundamental principles and techniques of ACT. You will be led through a wide variety of ACT exercises, in the same way as you would instruct them to your clients, and you will be encouraged to work with your own personal issues in order to get a feel for how truly transformational ACT can be.

About the Presenter
Dr. Russ Harris is a best-selling author, medical doctor, psychotherapist, life coach, advisor to the World Health Organisation, and world-renowned trainer of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy.
Russ’s background is in medicine. As a GP he became increasingly interested in the psychological aspects of health and wellbeing, and increasingly disenchanted with writing prescriptions. Ultimately this interest led to a total career change, and he now works in two different, yet complementary roles: both as a therapist and as a coach.
Russ has authored several ACT textbooks and ACT-based self-help books. His best-known book The Happiness Trap is now the most widely-translated ACT book in the world, with over one million copies sold worldwide and editions in over 30 languages. (To download the opening chapter, click here)
Russ has directly trained over 50,000 psychological health professionals in the ACT model and is known for his practical and fun style of teaching.
