Skills for Thriving: An ACT based Workshop

ACT assumes that efforts to avoid, control, or get rid of unwanted thoughts, feelings, and/or sensations can create unnecessary suffering. This workshop utilizes a combination of instruction, readings, and in-and out-of-workshop experiential practice to help you build skills and create flexibility in how you respond to distress. Skills provided will help you learn to stay mindful in the present moment, get unstuck from/remain flexible with unwanted thoughts, feelings, and/or sensations, and take steps toward living a valued life.
