Only one week until ACT Training - Book Now!

There’s only one week left until our 2 day Acceptance & Commitment Therapy training on the 8th & 9th of February.

Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to attend our comprehensive training course, which can either be taken as a stand - alone course, or as part of our full certificate in Third Wave CBT.
http://www.skillsdevelopment.co.uk/seminars.php?courseid=122

WHAT IS ACT?
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a treatment package that combines several traditions such as early behaviourism, positive psychology and mindfulness. ACT is a trans-diagnostic model that has been successfully used to treat conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, chronic pain, eating disorders and substance misuse just to name a few. ACT’s target is to promote psychological flexibility, that is, the ability to behave in a way that is consistent with one’s values even in the presence of aversive experiences (e.g. thoughts, feelings, physical pain). This is true as much for our clients as for the ACT practitioner. If you work in a context in which behaviour change is paramount, than this course will provide you with some very useful tools.
http://www.skillsdevelopment.co.uk/seminars.php?courseid=122

UNABLE TO ATTEND IN PERSON?
If you have other commitments or simply don’t want to incur the cost and hassle of travelling to London, this course is also available via webcast, so you can join at your convenience in the comfort of your own home or office. Webcasts are an increasingly popular way for delegates to study and take part in our courses. During the webcast you can to submit questions to the tutor online. You can also engage in a discussion about the course with other delegates participating in the webcast, vote if you agree with their opinions and take part in group surveys conducted during the course.

NO TIME TO ATTEND ON THE DAY?
Never mind! All webcasts are available to view via video for up to 28 days after the live training course. Providing you watch all it in its entirety, you will still qualify for the certificate of attendance for this highly recommended British Psychological Society approved training course.
http://www.skillsdevelopment.co.uk/webcast.shtml

ABOUT THE TRAINER
Nuno Ferreira is a Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh where he teaches and supervises research projects across several post-graduate programmes in Clinical Psychology. His main research focus has been on the use of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for long-term or chronic health conditions. Nuno has published a book and several research articles on ACT and is regular presenter at several international conferences in this subject area. Dr Ferreira has delivered this ACT course for SDS Seminars several times, always with excellent feedback:
“Clear, humanistic and intuitive. Even when challenged (sometimes under very robust circumstances!) Dr Ferreira was able to inform, explore, engage and explain a very useful therapy.”
See more feedback on the course page: http://www.skillsdevelopment.co.uk/seminars.php?courseid=122

Book now – don’t miss out!

Looking forward to working with you on the day.
