St. Catharines – Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) workshop

St. Catharines – Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) workshop

Parents and caregivers of children diagnosed with intellectual/developmental disabilities (i.e., Autism Spectrum Disorder)

Come out and learn about self-management strategies to help decrease psychological distress (e.g., stress and anxiety) while experiencing Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

The goal of ACT focuses on teaching acceptance rather than avoidance or changing of difficult thoughts and emotions in order to help reduce stress levels and overcome daily life challenges. Trained clinicians and caregivers will provide you with an introduction to ACT as well as teach you how to self-monitor your own actions to help you push through difficult times.

Dates: Friday November 8th, 2019 (5:30pm - 9pm), Saturday November 9th, 2019 (9am – 5pm), Friday December 6th, 2019 (5:30pm – 9pm)

Location: Community Room at Goodwill Niagara, 36 Page St., St. Catharines, On
