ACT Study Groups, November 2013

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Study Groups
Led by Joel Guarna, PhD

1st Mondays ACT Study Group
Next meeting will be November 4, 2013 @ 8 am.


  1. I will run through the Matrix as we are using it at the Mercy Pain Clinic and probably have the group participate in role-play as a group of patients. We will consider various ways to use the Matrix as a tool and note where the core processes show up and how to move them within the Matrix. We will also compare this use of the Matrix to members’ experiences in different contexts.  This will take most of our November meeting.
  2. The group agreed to start another book study since everyone valued our study of Kelly Wilson’s Mindfulness for Two last spring/summer.   Our plan is to purchase and begin reading Brief Interventions for Radical Change by Strosahl et al.   Please plan to read the Intro and chapters 1 & 2 by Monday, 11/4.

1st Wednesdays ACT Study Group is currently *on hold* and in re-grouping mode until we have sufficient numbers to resume.
