What are the founders of ACT saying about this program?

Steven Hayes

This is an exemplary program with excellent workshop leaders and the kind of follow through that can make a permanent difference in your practice. Highly recommended.

Kelly Wilson

I think Rikke has put together the most varied and talented set of trainers and topics that I have ever seen, anywhere. Setting aside my own part in this, and recognizing that I already have had the benefit of many years of great training, I would say that I would learn a lot from Rikke’s course. A lot! It is filled with people I love and respect.

 

Kirk Stroahl

The ACT clinical training program offered by Rikke is the best single training program we’ve seen in Europe. For the last seven years, we’ve had the privilege of working with Rikke and the excited learners that this program produces. The program offers a beautiful blend of ongoing clinical supervision based training and didactic instruction by the most highly respected ACT experts in the world. This program gives you not only the essential skills you need to practice ACT, but also high level clinical skills that will allow you to take your clinical practice to a completely different level. This is an investment in your professional development that will pay off handsomely for years to come!

Niklas Törneke

…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!

Robyn Walser

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 Strosahl

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 Robinson

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.
