Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) - pronounced as the word "act" rather than the individual letters of the acronym - is a widely-practiced psychological approach that fundamentally helps people to change. One of the so-called "third wave" of cognitive behavioural therapies, ACT involves six key processes that revolve around a central construct of psychological flexibility. ACT is quickly becoming a central treatment modality in many areas of psychological practice, increasingly so in the treatment and rehabilitation of individuals with neurological injuries and illnesses. We have put this event together as a means of bringing ACT practitioners in neurological conditions for continuing professional development of learning and reflection.
Learning outcomes include:
1. Understanding how the ACT model can be utilised for working with individuals with neurological conditions
2. Developing insights from practitioners and patients into which components of the ACT process are most helpful in this population
3. Becoming aware of large scale trials of ACT being conducted in the UK
4. Learning modifications and techniques for immediate adoption into neuropsychological clinical practice
