This information session will provide an overview of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) training for adult siblings (18+) of a person with an intellectual disability or autism.

ACT can help siblings better manage difficult feelings and life events by learning to connect with themselves mindfully and respectfully.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Kids Brain Health Network and Siblings Canada (an initiative of the Canadian Centre for Caregiving Excellence) will be offering a six-week ACT workshop for siblings, beginning October 25, 2022. This information session is an opportunity for potential participants to learn more about the workshop.

The information session and ACT training workshop are open to siblings from across Canada.
