Join us for an interactive skills-based workshop with breakout rooms.
DNA-v is the developmental model of ACT developed by Louise Hayes and Joseph Ciarrochi. Join us for two half days of engaged learning on how to work with young people based on the new book, Your Life Your Way due for release on September 1st. We will get straight into working with young people with a focus on practical applications. The training is suitable for people who are new to the DNA-v model as well as those that have attended in the past. We will use break-out rooms, skills practice and lots of chances to connect. This will not be a webinar style listening!
The workshop will include targeted learning on specific issues, including:
- How to help young people build strong relationships,
- How to help young people with self-confidence
- What to do with anxiety and overthinking,
- How to help with low mood,
You will learn how to confidently and dynamically engage young people aged 12 to 24 years.
Intended Audience: This workshop is suitable for all professionals who work with young people, including psychologists, counsellors, social workers, teachers etc. A working knowledge of ACT will be useful but not necessary.
Format of The Training: Didactic presentation and experiential clinical skills practice.
