ACT in OT Action Part 2

with Sarah Good, OT Nov. 4th, 2022 at 1:30 PM EST

This workshop has been created to meet the demand for a follow-up to our popular Masterclass, ACT in OT Action!

ACT in OT Action…

  • Introduced you to the core philosophy and science of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy
  • Provided you with an understanding of the 6 core processes of ACT
  • Provided you with tangible ways to integrate ACT into your OT practice!


ACT in OT Action Part 2 will give you the support you need to navigate the obstacles that inevitably come up with ACT in practice. When we encounter resistance with clients or are trying to implement concepts that are new to us, it is human to encounter that voice that says “ABANDON SHIP!” when things get hairy.

I am here to help you use the magic of ACT to stick with it, find new ways to pivot with your clients and gradually build your competence and confidence to keep harnessing ACT as a resource when it does get hairy. 

Join us live or catch the replay!

What Participants Have To Say!

“This course was exceptional! The structure, content, integration, and resources were great. This definitely has impacted my practice for the better. I will be recommending this course to other colleagues. Thank you Lara!”

Torri Luchyshyn, Physiotherapist

“I really appreciate how tangible this course is. While being a “psych” course, I really felt I had small nuggets of gold (word choice, recognition of thought processes) that I could immediately take away and put into practice in my professional and personal life. A lot of it spoke to my soul!”

Caitlyn Goodfellow, Ortho and Pelvic PT

“CBT for Persistent Physical Symptoms is a diverse topic that can be used with a variety of client populations. Lara does an excellent job making the information accessible, from the theoretical underpinnings to practical tools to use in your every-day practice setting. The course comes with both electronic and hardcopy resources, which meant I was able to immediately put my new skills to use with clients. It was a fantastic course!”

Maryann Ashley, BASc, MSc. OT

“As physiotherapists, we spend the early part of our career learning technical hands-on skills.  Once those are mastered, there comes a time when you feel the need to explore the fascinating psychology of pain and disability  This course is a great starting point in the pursuit of CBT skill-attainment.”

Jeffrey Begg, PT, FCAMPT
