What are the founders of ACT saying about this program?

Steven Hayes

This is an exemplary program with excellent workshop leaders and the kind of follow through that can make a permanent difference in your practice. Highly recommended.

Kelly Wilson

I think Rikke has put together the most varied and talented set of trainers and topics that I have ever seen, anywhere. Setting aside my own part in this, and recognizing that I already have had the benefit of many years of great training, I would say that I would learn a lot from Rikke’s course. A lot! It is filled with people I love and respect.


Kirk Stroahl

The ACT clinical training program offered by Rikke is the best single training program we’ve seen in Europe. For the last seven years, we’ve had the privilege of working with Rikke and the excited learners that this program produces. The program offers a beautiful blend of ongoing clinical supervision based training and didactic instruction by the most highly respected ACT experts in the world. This program gives you not only the essential skills you need to practice ACT, but also high level clinical skills that will allow you to take your clinical practice to a completely different level. This is an investment in your professional development that will pay off handsomely for years to come!

Meet your trainers

Rikke Kjelgaard

Rikke is a licensed psychologist and peer reviewed ACT trainer.

With more than 400 workshops on her resume, Rikke is a popular educator in ACT.

Niklas Törneke

…or “Mr. RFT”, as I call him. Niklas is a doctor, psychotherapist and supervisor. And he is enormously skilled at RFT (the theory behind ACT). That he is also an expert in behaviourism just makes it all more wonderful. I cannot imagine a better teacher in ACT, ABC and RFT!


Kelly Wilson

Kelly is one of the founders of ACT. He is a psychologist, professor and author of many books and articles about ACT. He is known for his unique teaching style: deeply moving and simply unforgettable. Meeting Kelly is an experience that you don’t want to miss.

Robyn Walser

Oh, Robyn! Robyn is a psychologist and expert in ACT. She has been in ACT from the very beginning. She has written several books and articles in ACT and is often referred to as “the trainers trainer”. She is the one that teaches us to teach ACT. She is a huge rolemodel and an extraordinary teacher and human being. One of a kind!

Kirk Strosahl

Kirk is one of the founders of ACT. He is a psychologist and author of many books and articles about ACT. Kirk is also a co-inventor of the Focused ACT model. In my humble opinion he is also one of the worlds most skilled clinicians. It’s pleasure attending his trainings where everything is “hands-on” and very useful. To see him do live roleplays has made a profound impact in many clinicians lives. Worldclass!

Patricia Robinson

Patricia is a psychologist and expert in ACT. She has been in ACT from the very beginning. She has written several books and articles in ACT and is the co-founder of Focused Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. She is training clinicians in the use of ACT in primary care settings. Patricia is an extraordinary teacher, human and touches the hearts of her trainees every. single. time.

Benjamin Schoendorff

Benji is a psychologist and expert in ACT. He has specialised in The Matrix. Benji has an incredible way of making difficult things comprehensible and his teaching style is both humorous and deeply moving. When training with Benji you are guaranteed to get tools that you can start using right away. Benji is an extraordinary human who also willingly and courageously walks the talk in his trainings.

What they say

Anne-Sofie Olesen

Det har været intet mindre end fantastisk at være i selskab med internationale oplægsholdere, som uden tvivl er blevet personlige rollemodeller efterfølgende.

Det er meget inspirerende at opleve forskellige måder at udøve ACT, og når man som jeg er virkelig begejstret for metoden, er det ekstremt opløftende at møde såvel oplægsholdere såvel som med-kursister, der deler ens passion.

Jeg har lært meget på uddannelsen – og jeg tror, det vigtigste er at være modig. At turde arbejde med min egen fleksibilitet – såvel som psykolog som privatperson.

Anne-Kirstine Thuen

Det har været lærerigt, sjovt, ind imellem hårdt, og mest af alt har det været udviklende, både for mig som terapeut og for mig som menneske. I de år, der er gået fra vi startede og til nu, er jeg blevet bedre til at stå på egne ben og vælge værdibaseret, – også når det har krævet (rigtig meget) mod. Det har betydet, at jeg i min fritid har været på rejser alene, jeg måske ellers ikke havde turdet tage på, og at jeg i mit professionelle liv har turdet at sige farvel til mit faste job for at prøve livet som privatpraktiserende.

Uddannelsen er rigtig godt skruet sammen.

Det var dejligt at være et hold og møde de samme medkursister jævnligt hen over de 2 år, uddannelsen varede.

Karina Thomsen

Det er gået op for mig, at disse undervisere fra omkring i verden har hjulpet mig til at tydeliggøre mit eget faglige ståsted. Alle har de været førende forskere og højtagtede klinikkere indenfor deres område i ACT – meget forskellige og med dét til fælles, at de er passionerede og modige. De viser gennem deres undervisning og væremåde, at mangfoldighed er velkomment i ACT-verden. Du skal ikke kopiere Kelly Wilsons måde at ”gå ned i tempo” på, eller forvente at du bør være ligeså eminent en klinikker som Robyn Walser, for at være en psykolog, der kan medvirke til forandring. Pointen er, at du skal have modet til at udvikle dig netop til dén terapeut, som du ønsker at blive. Det gælder om at udvikle din egen personlige stil. Og gøre det – og stå ved det!

Mie Tastesen

Jeg kom i den grad ud af min komfortzone, men samtidig på en måde, hvor medfølelse og empati var centralt i alt, hvad der foregik. Det var fedt, at få lov at eksperimentere og lege med ACT. Jeg har sjældent grædt og grinet så meget, som jeg har undervejs i den 2 årige uddannelse. Den sårbarhed og ærlighed, som der blev åbnet op for på holdet var helt specielt.

Mette Kruse

Da ACT er meget oplevelses orienteret giver det et rigtigt stort udbytte at være på uddannelsen, da man selv udfører mange af øvelserne og effekten af ”Learning by doing” er rigtig god og ikke noget man kan læse sig til. Jeg giver derfor uddannelsen en varm anbefaling. Vil man lære noget, gennemgå personlig udvikling og have det sjovt, samtidig med man er i selskab med utrolig dejlige mennesker, så skal man ikke tænke sig om to gange før man tilmelder sig.

Laila Lambrecht

Denne, for meg- mye mer sofistikerte samtalebehandling for atferdsendringer har gjort min allmennlege hverdag mye lettere, mye mer givende og mye mer spennende. Mine pasienter takker for timen, og har blitt raske til å komme tilbake når noe blir vanskelig.

Jeg digger “psyk” i avtaleboken- bare gleder meg. Det er så enormt hva som er mulig å få til for pasienter flest, jeg fletter stort sett alltid ACT momenter inn i enhver konsultasjon jeg har, og helt fantastisk ble det med fACT, et stykke super nyttig verktøy for allmennlegen. Dette verktøyet burde vært implementert i med.studiet. Samtaler er nå min gledelige utfordring og sykemeldinger har fått en ny dimensjon. 

Man trenger ikke psykologiske forkunnskaper for ACT.kurset, kun interessen i samtalen med pasienter.

Jeg anbefaler dette kurset over 2 år, for alle leger i allmennpraksis, det gir hverdagen en ny givende dimensjon.
