Objective: 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 webinar 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 modeling ACT with our clients – practicing what we preach.
