Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Do you want to learn how to stop the pointless fight with (annoying) emotions, (worrying) thoughts and physical sensations of discomfort? In this workshop we'll show you a way to do that in order to become more psychologically flexible. Based on the latest insights in positive psychology, named Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).


You’ll also learn how you can deal with your thoughts in another way then you’ve ever imagined. This creates space and attention for things that are really important to you (commitment). The goal is not to resolve or reduce complaints, but to become more mentally resilient.

Trainers Maaike and Hanna provide you with soms skills in an interactive workshop, with lots
of exercises.

Energize your life

“Joehoe, trek je het nog? Best pittig hè, deze tijd? Misschien voel je je prima hoor, maar ik hoor heel veel studenten over stress, weinig energie, negatieve gedachten, sleur, eenzaamheid. Herkenbaar? Kom dan naar deze gratis en impactvolle workshop ‘How to deal with stress, lack of focus & that nagging inner critic in your head (which I know is there )’.”

 
In twee uur tijd geeft trainer en coach Saskia Portegies je een paar simpele technieken om te dealen met (acute en chronische) stress, je focus te trainen zodat je niet steeds afgeleid wordt, en die eeuwige negatieve gedachten te stoppen.

“Als alumna van de RuG (Communicatiewetenschappen) én oud-voorzitter van Dizkartes (2002) voel ik mij vereerd om namens Dizkartes deze workshop voor jullie te mogen verzorgen!”
