ACBS BeNe key-note:
Practice what you preach:
Getting down and dirty in experiential ACT
presented by Rikke Kjelgaard
ACT is a therapy model that is hugely based on experiential work. Through metaphors, various exercises and experiential processes we invite our clients to contact their own experiences in order to step out of rule-governed living into a richer, more values-based and meaningful life. In this keynote Rikke Kjelgaard will talk about the experiential work in ACT and how it applies to therapists as well. With emphasis on self-compassion therapists are invited to do some experiential work to enhance skills in modelling ACT with our clients – practicing what we preach.
