Everything you wanted to know about ACT but were afraid to ask

A one day online CPD event on 17/05/2024




Are you someone who uses Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in your practice? Maybe you train or supervise others who do. Do you have some questions about the model, it's theory, or its practical application? Then this event is for you.

We are running a one-day online CPD event for ACT practitioners based on the recently released book,  'Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: Responses to Frequently Asked Questions', where the authors, Dawn Johnson and Richard Bennett, will answer questions about ACT chosen by the audience. Two weeks before the event we will email you with a Mentimeter link where you can send us any questions about ACT that you would like us to address. You will also be able to vote on other people’s questions and we will use the time at the event to address the most popular questions. Our answers might take the form of discussions, exercises, or live demonstrations, depending on the nature of the questions. Remember to check your inbox a couple of weeks before the event.

Attendees will receive a physical copy of the book and a CPD certificate.  We really want to get the book we worked so hard on into people's hands and so this event is priced at just £30, which includes a copy of the book sent to your postal address (RRP £18.99). There are limited places available so please book early if you want to come.  

This event will take place from 9:30 -16:30 GMT, on Friday, 17/05/2024. It will also be recorded so you can catch up later if attending live does not work for you.

I have to say I think both of you are excellent presenters and have a really impressive command of your topic. Very worthwhile and enjoyable as well as something which will help in client work
