ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) seeks to help individuals to struggle less with difficult things in their lives and mindfully connect with things that are most important in a way that is loving and respectful. ACT does not attempt to directly change or stop unwanted thoughts or feelings, but to develop a new mindful relationship with those experiences that can free a person up to being open, and to take action consistent with what they care about.
The monthly ACT Caregiver Support Group is an opportunity for caregivers to come together and support one another: we practice mindfulness, review an ACT process and build on the learning introduced at an ACT Workshop (a collaboration of EAF, CAMH, Toronto Western Hospital and Surrey Place Centre). Although attending a previous ACT Workshop would be helpful, it is not a prerequisite.
The ACT Caregiver Support Group meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at Extend-A-Family’s office, Ste. 200 – 3300 Yonge Street. To learn more, click here.
