The ACT in the workplace train-the-trainer course
In this 2-day workshop you will learn:
The workshop will provide delegates with unique insight into how ACT is being delivered as skills training programs to help improve mental health in workplace settings. The ultimate aim of the workshop is to provide delegates with the knowledge and skills to deliver this type of ACT-based training to working populations.
Day 1 of the workshop will demonstrate strategies used in a typical opening session of a workplace ACT program, along with examples of how to cultivate cognitive defusion in workplace groups. During their practical demonstrations, Paul and Ross will frequently pause to provide delegates with deeper insight into why they use particular strategies, and examples of how to respond to participants’ experiences.
Day 2 will provide demonstration of additional ACT strategies being used in workplace interventions. Ross and Paul will also provide space for delegates to reflect on and discuss more practical issues, such as how to market this type of program, the profile of the employees who might volunteer for the training, the use of “taster” sessions, ethical issues, and evaluation.
Delegates will be provided with a copy of the latest trainers’ manual for delivering ACT in workplace settings, and a set of personal values cards.
