New content alert! Duncan has recorded a teaser video for this workshop (password: &QS*kG%4)

This three-hour workshop will provide a conceptual, empirical and experiential introduction to the ACT-for-youth model – DNA-V (Hayes & Ciarrochi, 2015) – in schools and with children and young people. The workshop will explore how DNA-V conceptualised psychological flexibility processes can help inform a tiered approach to wellbeing work with young people at school, at home and in the wider community, including universal, targeted and specialist work with children and with adolescents. ABOUT THE TRAINER Dr Duncan Gillard is a HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) registered Psychologist and an experienced ACT & DNA-V practitioner and trainer. Duncan is the author of books including The Science of Children’s Wellbeing and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) for Dummies, and of a wide range of peer-reviewed articles and chapters on the subjects of ACT and Contextual Behavioural Science. For the last 18 months, Duncan has been leading an NHS-England funded, ACT-based psychology service called Enable Inclusion Team (EIT), which is a service for children, young people, families and schools where young people are at risk of permanent exclusion or presenting as anxious around school attendance. Duncan is the co-developer of the ACT-informed children’s wellbeing curriculum Connect PSHE, which is currently the only children’s wellbeing curriculum in the U.K. to have been successfully subject to a Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) yielding positive wellbeing outcomes for children.
