Registration for 6 weeks Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) for siblings

October 27 @ 6:30 pm - December 1 @ 8:30 pm EDT

Registration for 6-week ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) Workshop for siblings of an individual with a disability

This 6-week workshop of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is especially for siblings of individual with a disability.

What is ACT?

ACT is an approach that helps individuals to mindfully connect with important issues in their life. ACT does not attempt to directly change or stop unwanted thoughts or feelings but instead encourages us to focus on developing a new relationship with those experiences. By practicing in a mindful way, a person can become more open, and take actions consistent with what they value and truly care about.

ACT Workshop

The workshop will run on Wednesdays from October 27 to December 1, 2021 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm ET.

Please ensure you can commit to all six workshop sessions. The sessions build on each other so your presence is required. Sessions will not be recorded.


This workshop is being run in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and will be part of a research project into ACT and mental health. You will be asked to fill out a pre- and post questionnaire.

Participant selection

There are 15 spots for siblings in this workshop. If more than 15 siblings register, preference will be given to those who have attended the information session that took place on Sept 15.

Please note that when your sign up your name will automatically be added to the Sibling Collaborative mailing list. You can unsubscribe at any time.
