About this event

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of the third wave psychotherapies that has an extensive 40-year research history. It uses mindfulness, acceptance, values and committed action to move patients from being “stuck” to being psychologically flexible.

FACT is the version modified to enable initial consultations and follow-up consultations to be done in a primary care timeframe.

This workshop will include some didactic sessions and some practical sessions. It will show how FACT can be used to improve the HbA1c of patients with diabetes in single sessions.

FACT can be used with mental health issues and physical issues such as diabetes, chronic pain and fatigue.

Morning session, 9 am – 12.00 pm

This session will include an introductory talk, interviewing exercises for a first visit, including videos of changing behaviour in patients with diabetes and chronic pain.

Afternoon session, 1.00pm – 3.30pm

This session will focus on developing the consultation and include follow up visits and some videos/audios of consultations.

It will include some discussion of mood issues and fatigue.

Questions are welcome during the day, and Bruce will endeavour to get through as many as possible during the time available.

You will receive a Zoom link from the Goodfellow Unit (no-reply@zoom.us) closer to the event date. This link will be unique to you and will allow you to join Professor Arroll live on the day.

This webinar will be recorded, so don't worry if you miss it on the day, we will send you a link to the recorded session.
