Taking ACTion on Depressed Mood

Presenters: Jessica Rickus & Kayleen Willemsen

Are you or someone you know feeling down?

Have you or they been avoiding activities that you used to enjoy?

Do you or they feel a lack of motivation or a lack of energy to do things?

Do you or they feel caught up in a negative spiral in your/their mind?

Do you or they feel like you/they have been staying at home more often and not engaging with friends or family as much as before?

When depressed mood or feelings of depression show up for us, we tend to let go of, or lose sight of, what matters to us most.  This webinar will provide strategies from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help you take action despite those depressed feelings, rather than sitting back and allowing them to take control.

The 6 Core Processes of ACT that we will explore are:

  1. Acceptance
  2. Cognitive Defusion
  3. Self as Context
  4. Being Present (Mindfulness)
  5. Values

Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

ACT uses mindfulness practices to help people become aware of and develop an attitude of acceptance and compassion toward painful thoughts and feelings.


Behavioural Activation (BA)

BA is designed to treat depression. BA focuses on the depressed person’s behaviors that keep him or her stuck in depression.


Cognitive & Behavioural Therapy (CT & BT)

CT deals with thoughts and perceptions, and how these can affect feelings and behaviour. BT focuses on an individual’s learnt, or conditioned, behaviour and how this can be changed.

Quota Based Physical Conditioning

This can include graduated cardiovascular training and/or progressive resistance training to assist the individual to gradually resume their pre-disability level of functioning.


Rebuilding Social, Recreational & Family Activities

JMA guides clients through a graduated return to meaningful activity while assisting them to incorporate recommended strategies for pain management.


Work Hardening

Our work hardening process uses cognitive and physical work hardening strategies designed to utilize real or simulated work activities to restore physical, behavioural and vocational functions.
