Our Practice Development Unit (PDU) is pleased to announce the launch of a new set of e-learning modules that focus on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for wellbeing.
The ACT on Wellbeing e-learning suite is a set of four modules based on ideas from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), which is a type of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) that has a good evidence base for improving the wellbeing of people who find themselves facing a wide range of challenging situations.
The e-learning modules are designed to be used by anybody who can access the internet: whether you use services, volunteer or work in them, or care for somebody who does.
The four modules build on each other and should be completed in order, leaving some time in between each to try things out and practice the skills you’ve learned. Further guidance is provided in each module:
- ACT on Wellbeing Module 1: Introduction
- ACT on Wellbeing Module 2: Being open
- ACT on Wellbeing Module 3: Being aware
- ACT on Wellbeing Module 4: Being active
This e-learning suite was created in collaboration with Framework Housing Association and its contents have been developed by clinical psychologists Dr Andy Reeve and Dr Anna Tickle, with further support from Wellbeing Practitioner Jo Devenish.
Access the ACT on Wellbeing e-learning suite in the e-learning section of the PDU online hub.
You will need to be a member of our PDU and logged into the platform to access the e-learning section.
Please note: As these modules are for training purposes, they are not classed as therapy and do not replace therapy. However, they do provide a mixture of ideas, skills and techniques that can support you to improve your wellbeing.
