Jaimie and Ross will demonstrate how to use the ACT model to build psychological flexibility, creativity and resilience.
The workshops are fun and creative and will focus on teaching you how to use a full range of ACT techniques, that can be applied to a range of life challenges. The sessions will combine theory, discussion and practice of the key techniques. Participation is encouraged and everyone will leave with handy tools that can be used independently.
Dancers can register for multiple sessions.
All sessions will take place via Zoom with closed captions. The session slides will be shared afterwards. For any other access needs please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, we will be happy to support you.
