Led by Joel Guarna, PhD

1st Mondays ACT Study Group
Next meeting will be Jan 5, 2015 @ 8 am

Happy (almost) New Year!

Next week will be our first ACT Study Group of the year.  Here are a few agenda items:
New Years Resolution Edition of the Study Group.
Please do at least one of these homework exercises for next Monday:
  1. Complete a Matrix for a personal or professional goal.
  2. If you notice any of the resistance or ambivalence folks mentioned last meeting (re: completing a Matrix on yourself), complete a Matrix ABOUT completing a Matrix (with “complete a Matrix for group” as the toward move) on a personal or professional goal.
  3. Notice that you did or did not complete the Matrix…and perhaps notice what else is going on with you privately.  Share.  Don’t share.  Your call.
New book study.
“The ACT Matrix: A New Approach to Building Psychological Flexibility Across Settings and Populations” by Kevin L. Polk PhD (Editor) and Benjamin Schoendorff MA MSc (Editor).
We agreed to order, purchase or steal (?!) the Matrix book by Kevin and Benji S.  We will determine a plan for how to proceed with the book during the January meeting (no reading required yet).
