Three Tips for Getting Clients Unstuck with Dr Bruce Arroll
People can feel stuck for a number of reasons. The FACT model is a therapy where clients focus on accepting the feelings for what they are, and committing to making a change they can realistically make, and that will enable them to move on and passed this feeling of being 'stuck', to living a more thriving life again. Bruce will share some techniques that you can use with clients almost immediately.
Bruce is a Professor of General Practice and Primary Health Care at the University of Auckland New Zealand and a practising GP at Greenstone Family Clinic in Manurewa in South Auckland. He does regular general practice at that clinic and also does special consultations using Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (FACT) for people who are feeling stuck in their lives by stress, pain or low energy. He does this work with his own patients and those referred from his clinic colleagues as well as for people outside of the clinic.
