In this live-only 80 minute online session Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) co-founder Steve Hayes will share his latest methods to advance ACT work in clinical settings. Few of these tips have yet been written about -- he will cover methods large and small that will help you refine and accelerate your ACT work. Steve will talk about such topics as how to focus on values quickly, how to foster self-as-context naturally, how to get unstuck, and how best to use ACT methods to empower other evidence-based methods.

No recording of the event is permitted and none will later be made available. Steve is donating his time to help the ANZ ACBS chapter. We are offering this one-time live event with a money back guarantee: if these ideas do not clearly advance your ACT work, your registration fee will be returned to you.

Seats are limited!

In this webinar Steve Hayes will share a series of tips for doing ACT that have emerged in his recent work. He describes it this way:

"This webinar is designed for people who use ACT in their work.. I spend a lot of my time working on ACT and related topics such as RFT, Contextual Behavioral Science, and process-based therapy more generally. I'm constantly updating and tweaking and seeing new connections. In the first part of this webinar I will run through a potpourri of tips, ideas, and suggestions that may help empower your ACT work. In the last part I will take questions and will try my best to be of use to you."
