Terapia prin acceptare și angajament pentru bunăstarea clinicianului
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for Clinician Well-being

Dr. Ross White (Marea Britanie)
University of Liverpool, Institute of Psychology Health and Society

People often respond to challenging thoughts and emotions by trying to avoid or suppress these experiences. However, this can mean that people get stuck in avoidant patterns of responding that limit their opportunities to live a full and meaningful life. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a ‘third-wave’ psychological therapy that aims to help people to engage in behaviours that are consistent with their personally held values (e.g. supporting other people, developing new skills, engaging in creative activity) whilst adopting a non-judgmental awareness of thoughts and emotions that could serve to undermine these efforts. ACT uses a range of therapeutic strategies (including mindfulness-based practices, cognitive ‘defusion’, and goal setting) to help people be present with difficult experiences and still do what matters to them. Research has indicated that attending ACT training workshops can help clinicians to boost their mental health and wellbeing. Hence, ACT training can be advantageous for both the professional and personal development of clinicians. In light of the stress that mental health professionals face in their work on a daily basis, it is important that they avail of opportunities to look after their own mental health and wellbeing. Meta-analytic reviews have indicated that ACT is effective for addressing the psychological impact of a wide range of physical and mental health difficulties. This workshop will provide an overview of the ACT model and equip attendees with strategies and practical tools they can use to manage stress in their own lives. The workshop also provides an opportunity for clinicians to begin the process of building ACT competencies that can be incorporated into therapeutic work that they undertake with clients.
