OH, I WANT IN!

ACT FOR TRAUMA: WORKING WITH BODY MIND AND EMOTION

An in-depth, integrated approach to healing from trauma

If you want to help your clients find safety and security in their bodies, unlearn old physical responses to trauma, overcome hyperarousal and hypoarousal, shift from self-hatred to self-compassion, work mindfully with body memory, break free from dissociation, and learn how to build develop rich and meaningful lives – this 2-day masterclass is for you.

This advanced-level ACT training is intensely practical, with a major emphasis on working with the body and limbic system.

Sadly many therapists don’t realise that ACT is a powerful somatic therapy, ideal for working flexibly and creatively with the body (which is, of course, where so much trauma is “imprinted”).

This masterclass will show you how to use ACT in a deeper, holistic, integrative way, to work flexibly with body, mind and emotion.

This course will help you become more flexible, fluent and creative in ACT, so you can work effectively not just with PTSD but with the entire spectrum of trauma-related issues: simple, complex, acute or chronic.

Here is what you'll learn:

This course will help you become more flexible, fluent and creative in ACT, so you can work effectively not just with PTSD but with the entire spectrum of trauma-related issues: simple, complex, acute or chronic.

  •  The neurobiology of trauma, including Polyvagal theory and Attachment theory
  •  How to work effectively with the limbic system
  •  How to bring a numb body back to life
  •  Why and how “talk therapy” and “supportive counselling” can keep clients stuck in trauma
  •  How to use movement and mindfulness to help a client’s body unlearn old adaptive responses to trauma
  •  How to work with a freeze response
  •  How to help clients find a sense of safety and security in their body
  •  Simple psychoeducation to help clients understand their trauma symptoms

And you’ll also learn about:

  •  How to reverse hopelessness and build optimism from the word ‘go’
  •  How to rapidly ground and centre your clients
  •  How to use values for post-traumatic growth
  •  Epigenetic aspects of trauma, and how to ameliorate them
  •  How to recognise and reverse emotional dysregulation
  •  Powerful new tools, techniques and metaphors for working with trauma
  •  When and where ‘mindfulness meditation’ is contraindicated in trauma work
  •  How to use mindfulness processes flexibly and safely (without meditation)
  •  The art and science of compassionate, flexible exposure
  •  How to keep exposure safe by ‘Dipping in’ and ‘Dipping out’
  •  How to develop self-compassion, step-by-step, in the face of self-hatred
  •   How to revisit traumatic memories safely, without getting trapped in them
  •  How to use self-as-context naturalistically to help clients transcend past trauma
  •  How to deconstruct and overcome shame, step-by-step

And as if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also discover:

  •  Inner child imagery and rescripting
  •  Nightmare rehearsal and rescripting
  •  Working with body memory
  •  Defusion from self-hatred, self-criticism, self-blame
  •  Mindfulness and defusion as antidotes to worrying, rumination, catastrophising
  •  How to overcome common barriers to change
  •  Working with comorbidity
  •  Shifting paradigms: from the “window of tolerance” to the “zone of flexibility”
  •  Making “homework” simple, desirable, and likely to be successful
  •  And much, much more!

Meet Russ Harris Russ Harris - expert in ACT

Medical Practitioner, Psychotherapist, Life Coach

Russ Harris, author of the international best-selling self-help book ‘The Happiness Trap’, is an world-renowned trainer of Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT). Russ’s background is in medicine. As a GP he became increasingly interested in the psychological aspects of health and wellbeing, and increasingly disenchanted with writing prescriptions. Ultimately this interest led to a total career change. He now works in two different, yet complementary roles – as a therapist and as a coach.

Since 2005, Russ has run over 550 workshops and provided ACT training for over 27,000 health professionals, including therapists, coaches, counselors, doctors, and psychologists. He has authored two ACT textbooks (including ACT Made Simple), and four ACT-based self-help books (including The Reality Slap). He has also been co-author of a further two self-help books. The Happiness Trap, is now the most widely-translated ACT book in the world, with over half a million copies sold worldwide, and editions in over 30 languages. (To download the opening chapter, click here.)

He has also been co-author of a further two self-help books. The Happiness Trap, is now the most widely-translated ACT book in the world, with over half a million copies sold worldwide, and editions in over 30 languages. (To download the opening chapter, click here.) Russ has a unique model for training, which he calls ‘ACT Made Simple’, because it covers so much material in a short space of time. (In fact, he even has even written an introductory text book on ACT, titled ‘ACT Made Simple’. To download the first two chapters, click here.) He proudly proclaims each workshop a ‘jargon-free zone’ – and bases his training on three core values: simplicity, clarity, and having fun. His highly-acclaimed ACT workshops are brief, powerful, cost-effective and life-enhancing. Participants regularly report not only major improvements in their therapy and/or coaching, but also in their personal lives – and evaluation forms frequently praise his ability to make complex ideas seem very simple.

Russ Harris is brilliant in his ability to sniff out needless complexity and present complex clinical ideas in an accessible way. He has brought his clinical creativity to new methods and new ways of getting to the heart of these issues with clients.
That is a great combination and a significant contribution.
