1st Mondays ACT Study Group
Next meeting will be April 7, 2014 @ 8 am


  1. Our discussion will focus on ACT for Anxiety.  Bring your questions and favorite strategies.
  2. Plan to bring a case to discuss.  We will likely get to at least a couple of them on April 7.
  3. Consider what topics and formats you would like use going forward.  Another book?  More case consultation?  Specific trainings on certain ACT topics?
