Mindfulness and Values in ACT, June 15, 2011

1 day workshop (June 15)

“Mindfulness and Values in Acceptance Commitment Therapy”

Dr. Kelly Wilson

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is based on emerging clinical science that demonstrates the broad utility of mindfulness and values in human wellbeing. ACT is a hybrid therapy in terms of approach and technique, bringing together aspects of mindfulness, Gestalt therapy, and humanist-existential thought, all organised under a contemporary contextual behavioral framework. The ACT approach is about embracing necessary suffering in order to make more committed, life-affirming choices and live in accordance with deeply held personal values.

Dr. Kelly Wilson, who co-developed ACT, has devoted himself to the development and dissemination of ACT. Over the last 20 years, he has published numerous articles, chapters and books on ACT and its underlying theory and philosophy and has led workshops in 21 countries.
