Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy that stems from traditional behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Clients learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent them from moving forward in their lives. With this understanding, clients begin to accept their issues and hardships and commit to making necessary changes in their behavior, regardless of what is going on in their lives, and how they feel about it.

The workshop aims at:
· Introducing the basic concepts of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
· Demonstrating how ACT could be applied in counselling setting for Depression and Anxiety Disorders
· Showing how to adapt the core processes of ACT for adolescents

· Lecture
· Case Discussion

Medium of Instruction:
· Cantonese supplemented by English (Professional Psychological Terminology)
