It's with mixed feelings that we announce that the Expressions of Interest for Term 2, 2021 are NOW OPEN!
This will be the last term that courses will be on offer under the trial period of the ACT Recovery College.
With the ongoing future of the College still unsure, we urge those who are interested in attending courses at the College, submit an Expressions of Interest form as soon as possible.
In Term 2, we are excited to offer some old favourites, newly redeveloped and a brand new course. We are pleased announce that all courses will be face to face this term and we can welcome you back into the College.
These are the courses for Term 2, 2021. Please take notice of where they will be held.
- Creative Care for Recovery- Off site at a Woden location
One of our frequently requested courses, Creative Care for Recovery is back!
Creativity evolves as we experience, create and express! This course is an introduction to art therapy. No experience necessary.

This course will teach students about what distress tolerance is and the importance of stress tolerance techniques. We have redeveloped this course to give you more techniques to apply to stressful situations.
- Understanding Borderline Personality Disorder- Held at the College
Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a complex mental illness that is often misunderstood. This training has been designed and redeveloped, to provide you with a good understanding of BPD. It will provide an understanding and examples of each of the BPD traits listed in the DSM-V and how they affect behaviour.

This course will provide an opportunity for people to understand the long-term effects of trauma and the importance of reducing further trauma. Students will learn about the physiological response of trauma and how it affects behaviour and have an opportunity to learn practical skills.

A BRAND NEW course designed to reduce the stigma surrounding depression. To identify symptoms, understand possible treatments, gain coping strategies and be introduced to a variety of self-care practices. It is aimed at the person with lived experience, those caring for people living with depression and people interested in knowing more about depression.
