CE Credits

Licensing boards, professional colleges and associations have different criteria for continuing education credits, but generally require the following:

  • A syllabus or general outline of the course provided at the beginning

  • Written learning objectives that are specific and measurable

  • Content pertinent to continuing education needs and scope of practice for profession

  • Clear and effective evaluation procedures

Depending on your profession, the workshop meets these criteria. Professionals can contact their individual associations to review current CE requirements for license renewal. Participants who attend the entire workshop or group and complete an evaluation are awarded a certificate of completion.

Innovative Approach 

Common responses to stress are often unworkable and costly, not only to organizations, but also to individuals, their families, and the wider community. Many individuals have tried to deal with stress by attending seminars or reading self-help books and have found little improvement. These workshops take a different approach to stress and anxiety. We explore innovative strategies including:

  • New ways to handle unhelpful thoughts and avoidant behaviors such as procrastination.

  • An effective and compassionate approach to feelings of frustration.

  • How to make daily decisions that bring greater vitality and productivity at home, in the workplace and beyond.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

Evidence-Based Practice

ACT is a third wave cognitive behavioural therapy supported by a robust body of research. It is evidence-based for numerous client populations including people needing to make lifestyle changes due to major health conditions, people suffering from mood disorders, students struggling with procrastination, and workplace stress. See the American Psychological Association Division 12 list of empirically-based treatments and SAMHSA’s National Registry of evidence-based programs and practices:

See list of systematic reviews and meta-analyses of ACT.
