In this course we will explore
- The Acceptance and Commitment framework
- The theory of process-based therapy
- The philosophical roots of ACT and PBT
The framework of ACT beautiful aligns with the rehabilitation and therapy model for pain.
By exploring the framework and skills offered to us by ACT, rehab professionals can navigate and support their patients & clients through moments of resistance and towards values-based activities that is an important part of living well with persistent pain.
ACT is not a linear process adn no-one can be taught “how-to” ACT. To do it well we, we need to understand the stand-point of ACT and why the elements of the framework can be so powerful in supporting the transformation of a pain experience from live-destroying, to life-transforming. To do this, you will need to invest in theoretical basis of Process-based Therapy.
Embracing ACT will change you on a personal level as much as a professional level. We explore how you view the world and make sense of your role, your biases within your philosophy and how understanding different philosophical traditions will liberate your practice so that you can fully expand your scope out into being a hybrid-therapist and comfortable in the uncertainty of pain and pain-specialised care.
