ACT Peer Consultation Group, Friday, February 21, 2014 @ 8 am

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) Peer Consultation Group
Portland, Maine

Here is the agenda for the next ACT Peer Consultation Group
Friday, February 21, 2014 @ 8 am

If you have not previously attended this group but are a mental health or healthcare professional and would like to participate, please contact me first.


  1. Welcome to guests and new members, introductions.
  2. Brief Mindfulness Exercise.  Need a volunteer.
  3. Special Topic:  Self-as-Context, aka Flexible Perspective-taking
    Note from Julie: “For the February group…everyone enthusiastically agreed to focus on ‘self-as-context,’ yet we didn’t identify who was to take the lead on this. Who would like to volunteer to address this with the group?”  Update:  Alexa and Frank have volunteered to lead our discussion on these topics.  Thanks to Alexa and Frank.
  4. Resources.
    (a) You can sign into the ACBS site and read this recent online discussion about Self-as-Context.
    (b) Mattieu Villatte was interviewed on the ACT in Context podcast produced by ACBS.  Well worth a listen as it covers both theory and clinical relevance.
    (c) Please email me to recommend other resources you have found helpful and I will list them here.
  5. Planning.  We will spend a few minutes near the end to plan future meetings.

Extra:  A few of us from the ACT Study Group have decided to form a monthly Evolution Science and Behavior reading/discussion group, after work hours and in a more sociable setting.  First meeting will be in on Wednesday, February 5.   Let me know (email me) if you are interested.
