ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope

ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope – ACT processes: Values work with adolescents

Welcome to ACT taking hurt to hope.
Today’s program discusses values work in the ACT model. I have looked at how different researchers around the world work with values in therapy sessions. One of the most innovative persons in the ACT community is Dr Louise Hayes from Australia who has developed something called Values Cards for working with adolescents. In this program Louise explains how she came up with this idea and she also will show in a role play how she uses them. This is an application for young persons but I know that most of us will have use for these values cards she has developed. Dr Louise Hayes works at Orygen Youth Research Centre at The University of Melbourne, also in private practice in Victoria Australia, conduct research into treatments for adolescent mental health, and develop resources and books for workers
