Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in Career Conversations (Expert Training Online)

05/06/2020 10:00 - 12:00 View

ACT is one of the most promising tools for career practice to have emerged from the field of psychology in the last decade. Its aim is to support clients to identify and pursue a values-driven life, by helping them to minimise the impact that their negative thoughts and feelings have on their actions. For career development practitioners, it offers an approach to help clients to work out what their career goals are, and provides some techniques to help clients deal with low confidence and anxiety. There is a growing empirical evidence base for ACT, which demonstrates that it can help people to feel less anxious, more resilient and more motivated through group work and one to one exercises.
