Integrating Acceptance & Mindfulness in Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy

Thursday 30th August 2018, WA State Library

“CBT is not monolithic…there is no doubt that several concepts and methods that have been central to third wave interventions (mindfulness methods; acceptance-based procedures; decentering; cognitive defusion; values; psychological flexibility processes) are now permanently part of the CBT tradition…” (Steven Hayes & Stefan Hofmann, 2017, World Psychiatry, p. 245)

For mental health professionals interested in this topic, this is a reminder that final registration for this workshop closes in 2 weeks on the 23rd August.
