  • ACT in Context Reboot175 x 175.jpg
    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).

    Are you excited for the World Conference in Dublin but don't want to wait until June to connect with other ACBS members?

    ACBS Student Representative Sonia Singh here! It’s the end of August and I am still riding the natural research, clinical, and community high of the 16th annual Association of Contextual Behavioral Science World Conference. This year the conference occurred in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and there was so much to do in and around the conference. After the 2 day pre-conference workshops, the conference poster session and the chapter/special interest group social on Wednesday evening was a wonderful, low pressure social environment to see old friends and meet new people.
