Who are the courses suitable for?

Last updated about 1 year ago

All ACT courses are designed for mental health professionals, those who are licensed, interning or studying in the field, both undergraduate and postgraduate.  This can include but is not limited to counselors, coaches, therapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, nurses, GPs, OTs, social and youth workers.  

ACT for Beginners is an introductory course and suitable for those with beginner-level knowledge.  It’s also a great refresher course for intermediate-level practitioners.  

The ACT for Adolescents, Trauma-Focused ACT, ACT for Depression and Anxiety Disorders, ACT as a Brief Intervention and ACT for Grief and Loss courses are more advanced and suitable for practitioners who have already completed an introductory course, such as ACT for Beginners or a two day ACT workshop with a recognised ACT trainer. 

Please be aware that these advanced workshops include descriptions, videotapes, audiotapes, and/or reenactments of actual therapy sessions. Some of the case material may contain graphic descriptions of violence, sexual activity or other content which could be disturbing, especially for participants with similar experiences. The courses are intended for health professionals and advanced students, who participate at their own risk. If you find portions of the program upsetting, or if you need assistance for any other reason, please notify one of the trainers.
