Are you interested in learning about 'Acceptance and Commitment Therapy'?
Perhaps you have heard that Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a very effective tool for treating depression, anxiety, and many other psychological disorders. Did you know that ACT is also a great tool for managing our own thoughts and behaviours, improving our emotions and moods on daily basis?
In this course you will take 34 informative lectures taught by UK Research Psychologist and international lecturer on Psychology &Counselling - Elmira Strange, MPhil. In this course you will find out about many interesting ACT aspects (such as 'Acceptance' and 'Identifying Your Values') that you will be able to use for yourself and when working with other people.
In this course you will learn for example, what ‘Psychological Flexibility’ is and why you have to develop this skill if you want to feel more satisfied with your life. You will also learn how to practice 'Mindfulness' and 'Acceptance' in your daily life so that your cognitive state became more balanced over time. You will also find out why 'chasing happiness' is not such a good idea after all and what you can do about it.
You will also understand how to use 'metaphors' for managing your own thoughts and emotions so that you could regain control of what you think and how you feel on daily basis.
At the end of the course you will have access to 2 BONUS Lectures: "Stress & Anxiety Management" and "Psychology of Alcohol and Drug Addictions"
