Courses & Workshops

ACT and ACTiveRehab boost your skills to prompt sustainable behavioral changes. To effectively change lifestyles is imperative not only for our patients with chronic or combined conditions, but also for us working in the health care services.

It’s like a sport, if you aim to be a good sports-coach, you need first to be amazing in that sport yourself, then have the capacity to see what your trainee needs to thrive.

Lectures

ACT is a psychotherapy based on empirical tested mechanisms of action that account for behavioral changes. ACTiveRehab goes back to these mechanisms and help all the other professionals to build their practice on these mechanisms BUT WITH THEIR OWN TOOLS.
