ACT Study Groups, February 2014

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

1st Mondays ACT Study Group
Next meeting will be February 3, 2014 @ 8 am


  1. Our discussion will focus on Brief Interventions for Radical Change by Strosahl et al. this month.   Please plan to read through chapters 7 & 8 by date of our next meeting.
  2. I would like to spend some time getting back to case consultation.  If you have a case you would like to discuss, plan to give us a summary to consider for consultation and feedback.
  3. As we approach the latter half of the Radical Change book, consider what topics you would like to study going into the spring.

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).
