Stropping the Struggle with Emotions: Learning to Use and Teach Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Ideas
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a talking therapy that focuses on value-guided action. It teaches you to ACCEPT what is out of your control, and to COMMIT to doing what enriches your life. We all have difficult thoughts, feelings and memories and sometimes, they can overwhelm us. Sometimes, we try and fight against them and try to push them away. As a result, we can miss out on life. ACT helps you to learn how to handle painful thoughts and feelings more effectively and gives you more freedom to do the things in life that are important to you. This training is for Teachers and other School staff, School Nurses and Youth Workers.
- Introduce delegates to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Give delegates information about how to introduce ACT ideas to support young people to manage their emotions
- Give delegates information to enable them to apply the ideas to their own lives
