ACT on Purpose: promoting workplace wellbeing using process-based CBT

Presenter: Dr Eric Morris

Can mindfulness, experiential openness and personal values help workers to cope with the demands of stressful workplaces?

In this talk, Eric will outline how a skills-focused, process-based CBT program – Acceptance and Commitment Training (ACT) – has been shown to improve wellbeing for workers, with 20 years’ research across a variety of public and private sector settings (including in large healthcare organisations). An overview of the brief program (6-8 hours in duration) will be presented, showing how we can promote workers’ personal practices for wellbeing based on an open, aware and active framework. This program is low-tech and highly engaging, suitable for many team and organisational environments.

Eric will share experiences of running this training in a university setting (the ACT on Purpose program), discussing how the program structure allows those learning group facilitation to develop process-based skills. Finally, Eric with share how ACT on Purpose is being adapted to support the resilience of students undertaking placements to become allied health professionals.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic related to cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.

Registration 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start, upstairs at the Terminus Hotel – this pub discussion will be approx. 1 hour in duration.
