International ACT training

Learn how to promote mental health, resilience and productivity using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a modern behaviour therapy that combines mindfulness and acceptance strategies with behavioural activation strategies to help increase people’s mental health, resilience, life purpose, and psychological flexibility.

Over the past 15 years, research has shown Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to be highly effective in improving mental health and behavioural effectiveness among a wide range of different populations. One of the recognised advantages of ACT is that it can be translated into brief psychological skills training programmes, and delivered to groups in various settings (e.g., clinical/ counselling, workplace, coaching, and educational settings).

Arrange training in your country
Upon request we train group leaders in other countries than Sweden. Among other, we have given training in the USA, the UK, Finland, Denmark and Norway.

If you are interested in arranging training in your country, please contact Fredrik Livheim on or phone +46706940364.

The programme is based on Livheim’s highly regarded ACT group format protocol, which offers four days of ACT training and further support as you go on to facilitate your own ACT groups.

This training is ideal for any professionals interested in improving people’s mental health, resilience, and effectiveness in health, occupational, sports, or educational settings. Previous delegates on this ACT group format programme have included psychologists, counsellors, social workers, coaches, managers, teachers, and human resource professionals.
