Full listing of ACT trainings across the US and worldwide

If you are presenting an ACT workshop in or around New England* (or know about one that is not listed), please contact us to have your training listed here.

 

* In the interests of keeping this site uncluttered and true to its stated purpose of listing workshops accessible to those of us living in New England, only ACT workshops in the New England states (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut) and in a narrow band of surrounding areas will be listed here. The number and variety of ACT trainings in surrounding areas (e.g., Canada, NYC) preclude listing most of those trainings here.
