Invited Speaker at the 2018 APS College of Clinical Psychology Conference
Creating self-care practices for health professionals using ACT and goal ownership. This workshop aims to build practitioner self-care to assist health practitioners in enhancing their overall wellbeing, increasing their engagement within the therapist role and enhance their resilience. The workshop will utilise research and skills in goal ownership, Self Determination Theory applied within an ACT model of delivery. Evidence linked to lifestyle choices will be presented and practitioners will learn to address their own barriers to self care and use principles of goal ownership to enhance motivation and create a change in their own wellbeing. These skills can then be transferred to the clients they work with and the students they supervise.
