ACT Study Groups, January 2014


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

1st Mondays ACT Study Group
Next meeting will be January 6, 2014 @ 8 am.


  1. Happy New Year!
  2. We have had a lot of competing topics in recent months.  In January 2014, we will re-focus on our reading and study of Brief Interventions for Radical Change by Strosahl et al.   I would like to rekindle some of the focus we had when we studied Kelly Wilson’s Mindfulness for Two back in the summer.  Let’s try to get back in sync in two ways: Better coordinating our reading together and coordinating our reading with the in-group discussion.  Please plan to read through chapter 6 (end of Part 1 of the book) by January 6.  We will consider additional comments and observations of chapters 1-4 and then focus more specifically on the topics and themes in chapters 5-6.

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).
