Dr Bruce Arroll - Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
Dr Bruce Arroll will be speaking about his experience using Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT) in primary care and investigating its effectiveness in empirical studies.
Bruce is a Professor of General Practice and Primary Health Care at the University of Auckland and a practicing GP in South Auckland.
FACT is a new model of brief therapy that is a highly condensed version of a well-established longer-term treatment called acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). FACT teaches clients to cope with uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, and bodily sensations. It also helps people connect with their personal values and engage in committed actions that are consistent with those values. This approach motivates individuals to change health-related behaviours.
