The course provides a robust overview of techniques, session structure and learning strategies with hands-on practice. There is an emphasis on identifying key cognitions, working with specific behaviours and experiments, using value-based goal setting and more. You will also experience a framework for understanding mindfulness and acceptance approaches based on their original principles.
