La fonction d'un stimulus

Je lis l'article de JOHN T. BLACKLEDGE : DISRUPTING VERBAL PROCESSES: COGNITIVE DEFUSION IN ACCEPTANCE AND COMMITMENT THERAPY AND OTHER MINDFULNESS-BASEDPSYCHOTHERAPIES.

Il aborde la question de la fonction des stimuli et de la transformation de cette fonction par le conditionnement répondant, opérant qui sont liés aux contingences directes affectant l'organisme (ce que Hayes et al. appellent l'expérience ?) et la transformation de la fonction de stimuli liée aux processus verbaux.

Introduction

Je suis un psychologue de 51 ans qui découvre ACT et souhaite l'intégrer dans ma pratique professionnelle de psychothérapeute et de superviseur. Formé dans l'approche humaniste par Yves St-Arnaud, Jean Garneau, Michelle Larivey et dans l'approche psychodynamique par différentes lectures et participation à diverses activités (dont le Groupe d'étude sur l'intersubjectivité, GEI), il m'est difficile d'intégrer certains aspects du modèle d'intervention de l'ACT avec certains aspects des autres influences dans ma façon de travailler.

New Version of Togus IOP ACT Protocol

Attached is the newest version of the Togus one week Intensive Outpatient Program ACT protocol. This is a significant change in that we have moved Self-As-Context to the beginning of the protocol.

This protocol is really done at the end of day 3 after "The Bus." We are required to do 5 days, however, for bureaucratic reasons.

The protocol can easily be modified and done in a single session of about 1.5 hours if needed. I have done all kinds of variations depending on the time I have available.

While the protocol was developed in groups, it can easily be done with an individual.

ACT & Grief

On my 40th birthday, I thought to myself, “Maybe life really does begin at forty!” I was on top of the world: after 20 years of writing (resulting in five unpublished novels), my first book was finally about to be published; I loved my job, and my career was heading off in new and exciting directions; I had good health, a strong marriage, and wonderful friends. But all of that paled in comparison to the greatest joy in my life: my beautiful baby boy, Max, who was then eleven months old.

Psychotherapy Networker Session March 2008

Here are the PowerPoint slides and handouts for the Psychotherapy Networker lunch address on the "Roots of Compassion" and the "Seven Strategies of Liberation" workshop.

You do need to join ACBS to download the materials but the amount paid is up to you (down to $1 ... pay what you think ACT support is worth). If even that is a barrier, email me (hayes@unr.edu)

EL VENENO DE UNA ROSA: Sobre el agradecimiento - Spanish version

EL VENENO DE UNA ROSA

A ROSE'S POISON: About the value of gratitude

Celebrity Junior felt the forgotten rose on his lapel jacket. An stupid thing of his housekeeper. He pulled out the flower and a sting pricked his finger. C. Junior sucked the little drop of blood and felt the scent of the flower, so he decided to keep the rose instead of throwing it away and he asked himself about the meaning of the old houskeeper’s ritual who every morning, on the breakfast tray, put a flower that afterwards she attached to his lapel jacket. An eccentricity of the old woman....

Functionally Speaking - A Third Wave Podcast #1 - (August 18, 2007)

I thought it would be a fun idea to start a podcast related to Third Wave Behavior Therapy. I was fortunate enough to meet with a lot of presenters at ACTSI3 in Houston and interview them about what's new in the ACT world.

Who is using Web 2.0?

Who is using the ContextualPsychology.org website? For those who are new to web 2.0 concepts (which is was how this website was designed), it appears that this is a major way that people will learn and interact in the future. Probably many of the people who use this site aren't very familiar with Web 2.0 concepts, as most of them are likely to be over 30 years old. But as we go along, more and more people are going to interact this way. Already online learning communities are forming around evidence-based practice and other topics of interest to mental health professionals.

[[http://astdcascadia.org/BlogCascadia/2007/07/07/who-is-using-web-20/|Here's]] an interesting article on who is using web 2.0 broken down by type and age group. Are you part of the wave or behind it?

Web 2.0 and Contextual Psychology Website

The ACBS website is part of what is generally referred to as Web 2.0 in web-lingo. It allows people to interact socially with each other by modifying the content of the site (like a Wiki). Also, blogs and podcasts are generally considered part of web 2.0.

For those interested in what the heck I am talking about, here's a good website to check out with some nice info:
