2014 ACT I June Intensive Seminar in Cary, North Carolina
June 16-18, 2014, Cary, North Carolina
Intensive Seminars in Applied Control Theory are designed to teach the principles of Perceptual Control Theory and how to apply them personally and professionally. These principles include the ideas that people are internally motivated and that all behavior is purposeful.
This three-day seminar introduces the theory and the principles derived from it, with emphasis on how understanding PCT aids in personal self-evaluation and professional applications with particular emphasis on professional applications to schools. Learning to apply the principles derived from PCT requires time, commitment, and practice. The ACTs build upon one another, providing participants with both analytical as well as practical problem-solving skills.

"During my 24 years of teaching I have attended dozens of workshops, professional development seminars, and read numerous books concerning many areas of education. In June of this year (2009) I attended ACT I. Without question it is the best training I have ever attended. The reasons are numerous, but most importantly to teachers is that it shows you specifically what you can do from day one to make your classroom the best it can be. You will be given specific methods to help with difficult situations that arise, and more importantly, how to prevent difficult situations from ever occurring."
