Valentine's Day w/Kelly,

Self-Care & Self-Compassion are often experienced as competing with “other-focused” values, such as parenting, intimate relations, and work. Very often, self-care is last on the list.
In this workshop, we will learn through direct experience how powerful acts of self-care & self-compassion can enrich and empower all other areas of valued living.
This workshop will provide two days focused on values work in ACT. ACT is an integrated model, so our work together will necessarily touch upon other components of the model. However, the workshop will show how other components facilitate valued living. ACT principles will guide participants in new interventions, worksheets & interviews that can be used in any human services environment, including mental health clinics, but also, medical settings, workplaces, schools & community centers.
The workshop will be densely experiential & will focus on a set of tools & skills that participants will be prepared to use immediately following the workshop. This is a jargon-free workshop. As well as psychologists, we hope to welcome many from allied health care professions. This work is directly relevant to physicians, nurses, dietician, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and other health care providers. You are very welcome to bring a colleague new to ACT. It will be accessible for all!
