The Great Get Together

The Great Get Together


17-18 June, Everywhere!

This summer, be part of the biggest street party since the Jubilee - 'The Great Get Together'! The Great Get Together is inspired by Jo Cox, who was killed on 16 June last year. Jo's killing was meant to divide us and the best response is to show how united we are. There is a groundswell of people who reject divisive politics and simply want to bring our communities together and celebrate all that unites us. This is our chance. Everyone is invited to get together with their neighbours to share food and celebrate all that we hold in common. It could be a street party or a shared barbecue, a picnic or a bake off. What matters is that we all have fun and bring communities closer together. Go to the website and sign up or find your local event.

Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) in the Workplace

Source By: City University of London

Date: Friday 9th June 2017

A free one-day CPD event for professionals interested in using ACT to improve employees’ psychological health and resilience, followed by an informal evening wine reception from 5pm.

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a skills-based psychological intervention that uses a combination of acceptance and mindfulness strategies, along with strategies designed to help clients clarify personal values, and to use those values as an increasingly prominent guide to daily behavior. ACT is increasingly being delivered in workplace settings to enhance employees’ psychological flexibility, personal resilience, and mental health. This free one-day CPD event will provide delegates with insight into how ACT is being adapted, delivered, and evaluated in various organisations.

The event is likely to be of interest to any professionals interested in the application of ACT as a training programme in workplace settings; this might include psychologists, coaches, psychotherapists, occupational health professionals, OD, HR, and learning and development specialists. The day will include presentations from leading ACT practitioners and researchers, and will also include opportunities for you to experience training techniques that have been used in recent ACT-based workplace programmes.
