Cognitive Behavioural Therapies - Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is offered both as a single unit, or as part of the Bachelor of Psychology and Counselling. Cognitive Behaviour Therapies (CBT) are based on the notion that problems are related to thoughts, feelings and actions that are learnt over the course of a person’s development. This unit introduces students to the three waves of CBT, with a particular focus on the mindfulness-informed therapy of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In this practical unit, students will gain experience in applying and evaluating their skills across the six core processes of ACT.

Taught at Bachelor level (AQF 7), you will have the choice as to whether you undertake assessments in this unit or not. Those undertaking assessments may use this unit as a credit towards the Bachelor of Psychology and Counselling at The Cairnmillar Institute. Or, you can enrol directly into this degree for a Semester 1, 2023 start!*

Please note, single subject enrolment does not guarantee students a place in a Cairnmillar program of study. Eligibility criteria and recognition of prior learning restrictions do apply. For all enquiries, please contact to our Education team. 

*Applications are open for single unit admissions, as well as direct enrolment into the Bachelor of Psychology and Counselling. Applications will be forwarded to the Course Coordinator for an informal discussion prior to admittance.
