Workshop details:

DNA-v logo

DNA-V is a developmental model of ACT that focuses on growth and change. It has been a game-changer across the world in how to use ACT with young people. It has activated research trials and school curricula and has become a treatment paradigm in many settings across the world, such as CAMHS and school counselling services.

You’ll learn the key behaviour change processes that help you engage young people in counselling/therapy or wellbeing support.

This workshop is based on research from contextual behavioural science and our three best-selling books for ACT with young people. You will receive an e-book copy of Your Life Your Way will as part of this course.



Learn how to use ACT easily and effectively.

We will get straight into working with young people with a focus on practical applications.

The workshop will include targeted learning on specific issues, including:

    • How to help young build flexible thoughts, emotions and actions
    • How to help young people with their problems, such as anxiety and depression
    • How to help young people build strong relationships, self-confidence and higher self-worth
    • ….and more

You will learn how to confidently and dynamically engage young people aged 12 to 24 years.

What people are saying about this work….

  • Best online training I have done. Louise was engaging, gave sufficient breaks, allowed for participation and interaction with others. It was organised and presented well. I could listen to Louise all day! Thank you for inspiring us for further learning, and for creating a platform relevant to all in the MDT
  • Louise is a wonderful facilitator and her lived experience brings great warmth and wisdom to the work.
  • Louise is a fabulous, engaging and very thorough presenter. Despite being online, it was easy to remain engaged thanks to the interactive mediums Louise used.
  • The success of online training comes down to the presenter, even more so that in-person training. Louise’s presenting style, including her open nature & soothing voice combined with her positive influence to hold & capture a group conversation made this training a huge success.
  • The Zoom meeting worked well, in fact, it was probably better than being in a large room with Dr. Hayes on a stage and therefore actually more remote. Dr. Hayes felt very accessible and close. Having the ability to ask questions on the chat throughout was also a very useful tool. In a face to face presentation, it can be hard to save a question for ‘question time’ but in chat the question can be more pertinent, and more anonymous, which is comforting. The break-out rooms worked really well for the exercises.
