A Taste of ACT for Dietitians: Part 3

A Taste of ACT for Dietitians – Three-part webinar series: An introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and the use of mindfulness and values to support eating behaviour change.   

Acceptance and Commitment therapy is a transdiagnostic, transdisciplinary third wave contextual behavioural therapy.  This entry level webinar series will provide attendees with an overview of ACT and will support attendees to identity ways to use mindfulness and values to support eating behaviour change. This is the final instalment of a three-part series.


Better engagement, rapport, and client outcomes in time limited settings! 

ACT is an evidenced based intervention, focused on acceptance, mindfulness, and values-guided change. It is a modality ideal for people working in time limited settings such as public mental health, eating disorder treatment settings and community health settings.  A case study will be used throughout the series to assist attendees to understand the application of ACT principles with nutrition counselling. 

This webinar series will provide attendees with an overview of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), with a particular focus on the application of mindfulness and values to support eating behaviour change. Participants will be supported in the development of introductory ACT skills and the use of values to support clients with eating behaviour change.

This will be the final webinar in a three-part webinar series. Please note that A Taste of ACT for Dietitians: Part 1 and Part 2 are currently available for purchase in the Shop. 

This webinar is brought to you by the Mental Health Interest Group (2024).
