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.

The guide highlights key characteristics of a person-centred dementia care plan and is intended for primary care, commissioners and anyone tasked with writing and providing care plans and reviews.
