Review of two day training program by Dr Russ Harris on 18 & 19 of February 2013

Russ presented a lively seminar with appropriate metaphors to be used in understanding mindfulness and ACT. My impression is that the medical profession in Australia is still reluctant to embrace the mindfulness as a method of psychotherapy. About two years ago the Australian Doctor magazine published a headline article about a patient I referred for counseling whom I considered was suitable for mindfulness therapy. The doctor that I referred too, had limitations on his practice regarding psychotic clients.

I am CBT trained with 10 years previously as a CBT supervisor and tutor with the South of Scotland Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Course and 20 years as an NHS Psychotherapist specialising in 'third wave' contextual CBT and systemic psychotherapy. I have been incorporating 'third wave' contextual CBT and mindfulness approaches into my work over the last 8 years.

Reflections over no 48 of the Dao De Jing

I have long been puzzled by pasage 48 of the Dao De Jing. Since my occupation is within the world of education, I have
found it provocative. In GiaFu Feng and Jane English translation it goes:

In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.
In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.
Less and les is done
until non-action is achieved.
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.
The world is ruled by letting things take their course.
It cannot be ruled by interfering.

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: An Experiential Approach to Behavior Change

The first step

After 7 years in a training role in a large mental health trust, I have now stepped back into a clinical role.  The role is as a primary care nurse, helping to move clients from secondary care services like Community Mental Health Teams into GP care.  Of course they move themselves and I hope to oil their wheels and take the bugs off their windshields.  I had an introduction to Acceptance Commitment Therapy via an introductory day plus extensive reading related to its use in building resilience in the workforce.  From my vantage point, its exciting and full of poten

叙事与ACT

近期参加中澳叙事治疗培训,感受良多。

首先觉得叙事治疗的后现代、后结构主义、语境主义的哲学思路还是很清楚,是人类发展至今对自身认识的进步,也是心理治疗的进步。从前现代的皇权、教主等少数掌握所谓真理知识到现代社会重视科学、专家知识,再到后现代强调人文知识是社会建构的。使得治疗师的地位逐步与来访者平等,甚至成为学生。不再是专家、医生的姿态对待来访者,特别是因为心理障碍本身就是社会建构的结果。ACT在这一点上与叙事治疗是一致的。

但是,叙事强调没有一个稳定的我,只有不断变化的身份认同,这一点与ACT似乎不太一致,因为ACT强调有观察的我存在,正如人本主义也强调有真我存在一样。不过,通过学习,觉得叙事的变化的身份认同似乎更接近真相。

THE UGLY DOLL

Dear Santa: this is just to say
That I don´t like the doll you left.
She is cross-eyed, her hair a mess
It seems to me sort of rags her dress.

I see my friend’s dolls so pretty, so well,
That I feel jealousy of their happiness.
Please Santa, come back and take it away!

Dear Santa, I hugged my doll yesterday
I told her some tales and we sang as well.
We shared our secrets and then fell asleep.

ACT与佛学

从更广阔的视角来看,接纳与承诺疗法(ACT)属于语境行为科学(contextual behavioral science,CBS)取向,是一个整合基础与应用、理论与实践的集合体[23]。非常值得注意的是,ACT的理论和实践技术中,融合了很多东方文化,特别是佛学、禅宗的概念。

EL VERDADERO TESORO

En cierta ocasión, un forastero llegó a la capital de un remoto lugar. Había viajado largo tiempo en busca del tesoro que, según la leyenda, se encontraba oculto en algún lugar de aquellas montañas. Como no sabía por dónde empezar, se dirigió a un mercader con aspecto honrado con el fin de conseguir alguna información sobre la posible ubicación del tesoro.

THE TRUE TREASURE

Once upon a time there was... a traveler who arrived at the main city in a distant country. He had taken a long journey in order to find the treasure which, according an old legend, was supposed to be buried in some hidden place in the mountains.

从value 到commitment

今日在所里参加英国马克·海华德(Mark Hayward)学习叙事治疗,他从事家庭治疗30多年,2002年达利奇中心首届国际研究生课程毕业。可以说是叙事疗法创始人“黄埔一期”的王牌力量。他在英国创立叙事疗法研究院(INT)并担任院长。同时担任英国康沃尔(Cornwall)最大的健康服务中心叙事治疗部主任。他讲学的足迹遍布欧洲,并在英国、澳大利亚和美国发表大量学术论文。

今天的收获还是很多,虽然讲的内容不多。主要收获:1、利用resonance来进行人际互动,相互认识,反馈自己与对方哪些内容产生了共鸣。2、通过介绍自己爱好,找到Action后面的intention,以及之后的value,从value探寻Hope or dream,再探索人生规则principle,以及按照规则行事的commitment,最后上升到Meaning 和Identity。这与ACT有很大的重叠部分,特别是从Vlaue到commitment,但是,操作路线很清晰。这值得ACT训练value时使用。

ACT与公共精神卫生或大众心理健康

通过这些年对ACT的学习与实践,感到ACT的基本理念非常符合东方文化和价值观,具有很好的大众实用性和适用性。我们中国文化中一些常见的语言也与ACT很契合,大家在遇到苦恼时经常会谈及“活在当下,别想那么多”其实就是与现实接触,减少认知融合。我们常说“退一步海阔天空”“心宽”不就是以己为境扩大心理空间吗?我们会说“忍一时风平浪静”其实就是接纳,我们说“理想是灯塔”就是价值,我们说“一诺千金”就是重视承诺的作用。当然,中国没有心理学家提出关系框架理论,但我们有儒道佛,道解决身心问题,佛解决自我问题,儒解决个人发展及家庭社会关系问题。如何把这些和ACT整合起来,是一个很好的研究方向。如何让大众很好地掌握这些技术,也是值得做的事情。

ACT与叙事疗法、CBT、咨客中心疗法、SFBT、MBCT之间的关系到底如何?

今天在课题组讨论ACT时,感受到ACT是一个比较综合的整合治疗法,与叙事疗法有相同的语境主义哲学基础,接纳的技术与叙事的外化也重叠,特别是在明确价值、承诺行动部分有很大的重叠,而CBT中也有distancing的技术,这与ACT中认知解离有重叠。接纳部分及以我为境部分与咨客中心疗法有重叠,积极取向、资源取向、解决取向、语言重构等方面与SFBT重叠,在正念方面与MBCT重叠,这使得ACT似乎是一个整合体,虽然他背后的心理学理论是有别于其他任何治疗。

期待能有综述文章来理清这些关系。

ACT ofCHINA(中国ACT)

今天是2012年11月30日,下午课题组会主要讨论了ACT相关话题,从comprehensive distancing 到ACT的发展,以及比较CBT与ACT对焦虑症的治疗效果。还讨论了ACT六边模型与佛学的六盖“贪嗔痴慢疑见”之间的关系。我们课题组成员都对ACT有很高的认同,并且愿意在中国推广ACT,希望不久之后能够在ACBS申请中国分会,更好地传播ACT,造福中国人。

ACT Made Simple

Just bought a Kindle copy of Russ Harris's primer ACT Made Simple. I first discivered ACT through his self-help books, which have been transformational for me. I have really been enjoying and learning from the ACBS podcasts so I thought I would go a bit deeper and look into ACT as it is practised by therapists and others.

ACT in IRAN درمان پذیرش و تعهرذ

از دیدگاه درمان پذیرش و تعهد اختلالات روان شناختی و رنج بردن ناشی از عدم انعطاف پذیری روان شناختی است و با تیدیل عدم انعطاف پذیری روان شناختی به انعطاف پذیری روان شناختی این اختلالات و رنج ها کاهش قابل توجهی پیدا خواهند کرد. انعطاف پذیری روان شناختی خود از ناهمجوشی شناختی ، دلبسته نشدن به مفهوم ساخته شده از خود ، پذیرش تجربی ، ارتباط آگاهانه با زمان حال ، واضح سازی ارزش ها و عمل کردن بر اساس ارزش های شخصی که به صورت درونی با یکدیگر در ارتباط هستند، نشات می گیرد.

Workshop de Terapia de Aceptación y Compromiso (ACT) y Psicoterapia Analitico Funcional (FAP)

"Competencias Terapéuticas para el trabajo con la Conducta Clínica"

Viernes 16 y Sábado 17 de noviembre de 2012

 

Fundamentación:

ACT in the healing community

As a Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist, In Boca Raton, FL, I am one of the only therapists that are trained in and practice Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Functional Analytic Psychotherapy in South Florida, let alone the South Eastern United States. I am thrilled to have had the honor to learn the foundation of ACT directly under Dr. Steven Hayes, the father of ACT, and inspired by many of ACT behavioral scientists who have helped me to enrich my technique in being an ACT Therapist. ACT is so very effective in helping individuals with depression, anxiety and pain.

You Probably Aren't The Best Person For The Job

Do you ever feel like you might not be the best person for the job?

Do you sometimes worry that people will find you out and realise that you aren't smart enough or knowledgable enough or skilful enough for the job?

Do you sometimes get distracted by the fear that people are thinking that you are the wrong person for the job? That they are wishing they had a different boss, coach, project manager?

When that fear that you aren't quite good enough comes up, what do you do?

What To Do With Feelings Of Shame

Do you think it is bad to feel ashamed?

In this interview, Maarten Aalberse suggests that we have a tendency to feel ashamed about feeling shame and that this causes us problems. He suggests responding to those feelings with empathy and compassion instead of trying to reject these painful emotions. What does that look like?

ACT Box :example of scoring .

A few clues about using ACT Box SAT in clinical practice with virtual examples.

When the client has scored the scales, you can use a stabilo or whatever else to underline the area. (file 1).

You can follow client progress on ongoing basis with the graph (File 2).

Derivations autour de La Matrice : ACT Box Outil d'Autoévaluation (OAE)

Bonjour à tous,

Je poste ici mes reflexions autour d'un outil permettant à nos clients de s'autoévaluer,

sur 4 dimensions, d'une version modifiée de la matrice de Polk.

Cet outil vise à être une aide clinique et n'est pas une échelle standardisée.

Les 3 feuillets comprennent respectivement des explications brèves sur l'outil et la passation,

Derivation on The Matrix Model : ACT BOX Self assessment Tool (SAT)

HI everybody, here is my two cent's contribution based upon POLK Matrix Model.

The idea was to include Visual Analogic Scales (VAS)  to get client's assement of 4 Act Dimensions. This is a clinical tool, not a stantardized scale.

With the  3 files, you get a short rationale of the measure, the measure sheet, and a simple graph to report 10 sessions measure.

I wait for your comments !!!

Best,

Christophe Cazauvieilh, psychologist.

Moving toward freedom

I have been asked by the good folks at Comporte-se in Brazil to become a columnist for their blog. Here's the first installment of my column in its English version.

I want to start this blog by thanking Comporte-se (Behave Yourself) for extending the invitation to blog on their site. I hope it will serve as a discriminative stimulus for me to blog regularly. I’d started a blog in French some years ago but as I got into writing books, let it go by the wayside.
