Event description

Description

About the workshop: This workshop gives an introduction to and overview of the ACT Model. Throughout the workshop experiential learning will be woven around theoretical foundations, giving the participant an immersive experience.

Review of Evidence

  • The six core processes of ACT and their common target: flexible, value consistent living
  • Process one: acceptance versus experiential avoidance
  • Identifying the pervasiveness of emotion control.
  • Learning to see experiential willingness as an alternative to experiential control.
  • Making contact with willingness as a choice, not a desire.
  • Understanding willingness as a process, not an outcome.

Process two: undermining cognitive fusion

  • Seeing thoughts for what they are – thoughts-- so that those thoughts don't have to dominate the person's life.
  • Help people attend to thinking and experiencing as an ongoing behaviour process, and help them move away from the literal meaning of thoughts.

Process three: getting into contact with the present moment/mindfulness

  • Help people discover that life is happening right now, and to return to now from the conceptualized past or future.
  • Making contact with the life that is happening now, whether it involves sorrow or happiness.
  • Help people to notice what is happening in relationships in the moment

Process 4: distinguishing the conceptualized self from self as context

  • Making contact with a sense of self that is continuous, safe, and consistent, and from which people can observe and accept all changing experiences.
  • Differentiate this consistent sense of self as the context, arena, or location in which all experience happens, from the content of experience (e.g., Emotions, thoughts, sensations, memories).

Process five: values

  • Contact and clarify the values that give your life meaning
  • Link behaviour change to chosen values, while making room for automatic reactions and experiences

Process six: building patterns of committed actions

  • Develop behaviour change in the service of chosen values, while making room for automatic reactions and experiences.
  • Take responsibility for patterns of action, building them into larger and larger units to support effective value-based living.
