ACT Workshop for the CBT Alliance of Thailand





Dr Dan Seal was invited to give a pre-conference workshop on Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) to the CBT Alliance of Thailand on the 25th October 2023. The participants were psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and counsellors who have received training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

To provide an experiential and time-condensed introduction to ACT a modified version of the ReFlex Program was presented in a single day.

The workshop encouraged the participants to interact with each other and discuss how they might apply the concepts to themselves and others.
