ACT in Context Reboot175 x 175.jpg
29th November 2018
The ACT in Context Podcast is back! Beginning in October of 2018 new episodes will be posted regularly. Our goal with the podcast is to have a series of conversations with some of the interesting members of our contextual behavioral science community. We think is it like going out for dinner at the ACBS World Conference and talking about what we're passionate about. Producted by Marcel Tasara, hosted by Joanne Steinwachs and Tim Gordon, ACT in Context is being offered as both a traditional podcast with audio and as a video podcast (available on YouTube).

This, combined with the increases in the number of submissions along with diversity of topics, authors, and methodologies, makes me confident that JCBS’ impact will continue to grow.
