Previous webinars have been successful. Thanks to all the members who have participated. Currently we are working towards arranging further webinars.

If you have not attended a webinar previously, you will find its a convenient and great learning experience. It is also a wonderful way to engage with the presenter and have your questions answered directly. At a subsidised fee, we encourage all Interest Group members to attend.

Links to current videos (free access) are found in the Resources section of the member page.



We have been regularly updating our ACT Supervisors List thanks to our committee member Charles Thermos. If you would like to be added to this list, or would like to access this list, please contact Charles via the following email:



Applications for the Student Interest Group Prize are now open! If you know any students doing ACT or RFT-related research get them on board. Applications close on 31 October 2016. For more information click here.


If you have any relevant material for us to share with group members, please contact our website editor.
