ACT Study Groups, December 2013

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

1st Mondays ACT Study Group
Next meeting will be December 2, 2013 @ 8 am.


  1. We have an assortment of “catch-up” topics to discuss, at least briefly.  These include: (a) Joni sharing her experiences with yoga teacher training and similarities to ACT she has observed in this experience, (b) brief discussion of compassion-focused therapy and its relationship to ACT, (c) some study group members’ experiences at the recent event with Thich Nhat Hanh in Boston, and (d) brief discussion about the recent workshop by David Barlow on the Unified Protocol and similarities vs. differences in this approach compared to ACT.  Did I miss anything?  Geez, I hope not!
  2. Since we did not get to chapters 1 & 2 last month, we will start our discussion of Brief Interventions for Radical Change by Strosahl et al. this month.   Please plan to read through chapter 4 by December 2.  

1st Wednesdays ACT Study Group is currently *on hold* and in re-grouping mode until we have sufficient numbers to resume.  Let me know if you are interested in “seeding” this group (the Monday group is full and has a waiting list).
