Introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
An introductory Acceptance and Commitment Therapy workshop happened on Wednesday, 31st of October, 2018, at Sampurna Montfort College, Bangalore.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT, pronounced as the word “act”), is a new cognitive-behavioural therapy that has gained increased attention in the recent years. The world is moving on from the second-wave traditional CBT to third-wave behavioural therapies like ACT which has great emphasis on processes such as mindfulness, self-compassion, and values.
Two main things that this workshop covered:
– The six core principles of ACT and how to effectively use them in clinical settings
– How to apply ACT in your own life to deal effectively wit problems such as procrastination and worries about the future.
This workshop offered a lot of fun-based learning including role plays and interactive exercises.
