Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique and creative model for both therapy and coaching, based on the innovative use of mindfulness and values. The aim of ACT is to maximise human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life; to cultivate health, vitality and well-being through mindful values-based living.
Russ Harris’s highly-acclaimed ACT workshops have been held all over Australia, and internationally, and he is renowned for his ability to make complex ideas simple, clear and accessible.
Russ’s ACT-based self-help book, The Happiness Trap, is an international best-seller, with over one million copies sold.

Russ has developed a unique model for training, which he light-heartedly refers to as ‘ACT MADE SIMPLE’. To download the first chapter of the second edition of ‘ACT MADE SIMPLE’ textbook at no cost Click here.
Russ proudly proclaims each workshop a ‘jargon-free zone’ – and bases his training on three core values: simplicity, clarity, and having fun. These workshops are suitable for psychologists, psychiatrists, GPs, social workers, mental health nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, dietitians, naturopaths, counsellors and coaches.
The 2-day Beginners workshop gives you a quick-start foundation in the ACT basics, and then there are a range of advanced level workshops, which change from year to year, to help you take your skills to the next level. For example, a good follow-up workshop is ACT For Depression & Anxiety: 2-day advanced workshop.
Aside from The Happiness Trap, Russ has written three other self-help books: The Confidence Gap, The Reality Slap and ACT With Love. He has also co-authored The Happiness Trap Pocketbook. In addition, he has written two textbooks for ACT practitioners, the introductory-level ACT Made Simple, and the advanced-level Getting Unstuck In ACT.
