Imagine being the therapist that you could be. Imagine what it will feel like when you’re fluent, flexible and confident in ACT. Imagine what it’s like when you know exactly what to do, why you should do it and how to do it. This program teaches you the head, the hands and the heart of ACT.
Teaching you how to be fluent and flexible in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

…or “Mr. RFT”, as I call him. Niklas is a doctor, psychotherapist and supervisor. And he is enormously skilled at RFT (the theory behind ACT). That he is also an expert in behaviourism just makes it all more wonderful. I cannot imagine a better teacher in ACT, ABC and RFT!
Kelly is one of the founders of ACT. He is a psychologist, professor and author of many books and articles about ACT. He is known for his unique teaching style: deeply moving and simply unforgettable. Meeting Kelly is an experience that you don’t want to miss.
Oh, Robyn! Robyn is a psychologist and expert in ACT. She has been in ACT from the very beginning. She has written several books and articles in ACT and is often referred to as “the trainers trainer”. She is the one that teaches us to teach ACT. She is a huge rolemodel and an extraordinary teacher and human being. One of a kind!
Kirk is one of the founders of ACT. He is a psychologist and author of many books and articles about ACT. Kirk is also a co-inventor of the Focused ACT model. In my humble opinion he is also one of the worlds most skilled clinicians. It’s pleasure attending his trainings where everything is “hands-on” and very useful. To see him do live roleplays has made a profound impact in many clinicians lives. Worldclass!
Patricia is a psychologist and expert in ACT. She has been in ACT from the very beginning. She has written several books and articles in ACT and is the co-founder of Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She is training clinicians in the use of ACT in primary care settings. Patricia is an extraordinary teacher, human and touches the hearts of her trainees every. single. time.
Benji is a psychologist and expert in ACT. He has specialised in The Matrix. Benji has an incredible way of making difficult things comprehensible and his teaching style is both humorous and deeply moving. When training with Benji you are guaranteed to get tools that you can start using right away. Benji is an extraordinary human who also willingly and courageously walks the talk in his trainings.
Since ACT is so experiential it has been very rewarding to participate in this training. We were doing all the exercises on ourselves and the effects of learning by doing were amazing and not something you can read about in a book. I highly and warmly recommend this training program. If you want to learn ACT, try out ACT personally and have fun while you connect with wonderful people, you shouldn’t hesitate for even a second to sign up for this.

I was really pushed out of my comfort zone in this training. And all the way compassion and empathy was central in what we were doing. It was amazing to get the opportunity to experiment and play around with ACT. I have rarely cried and laughed as much as I did in this training. The vulnerability and openness that was offered was truly special.
MIE MY ISOLDE TASTESEN
This training has done my medical practice much easier, more giving and more exciting. My patients are thanking me for our sessions. I now always use ACT – especially Focused ACT – in my consultations and it’s such a useful tool for my practice. This should have been part of any medical training.
It’s been amazing to be in the company of these trainers that has become personal and professional rolemodels to me. I enjoyed the variety of trainers as well as the passionate support from my peers. I’ve learned so much. Especially to be brave. And to work with my own flexibility both professionally and personally.

Der tilbydes 60 timers supervision i gruppe som kan tilkøbes i en supervisionspakke (se udførlig beskrivelse under supervision).
