This list serves as a forum for scientists, scholars, practitioners, and students to discuss Acceptance and Commitment Theory (ACT) with therapist, practitioners, and consultants who work with kids, parents, families, and teachers. Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a unique empirically based psychological intervention that uses acceptance and mindfulness strategies, together with commitment and behavior change strategies, to increase psychological flexibility. Psychological flexibility means contacting the present moment fully as a conscious human being, and based on what the situation affords, changing or persisting in behavior in the service of chosen values.
This is the mailing list for the student member Special Interest Group of ACBS.
The purpose of this listserv is to facilitate discussion of the implication of contextual behavioral science, RFT, and ACT for education.
Christian clients have a specific worldview which presents individual opportunities and challenges within the psychotherapy process. This group investigates these, specifically with reference to behaviour analysis. The target audience are psychotherapists although all those interested are welcome. There is no restriction regarding the beliefs of the participants. However, this is not a forum for discussions about the veracity of Christian beliefs or a comparison with any other beliefs, unless such a reference is very relevant to the discussion.
This is a list serve for psychiatrists, physicians, behavioral health providers from other fields, and others (researchers, students, educators) who are interested in the relation of medical practice and biological research to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and other aspects of contextual behavioral science. Email Ellen Lewis to learn more and to request membership.
