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).

    When ACBS was founded in 2005, we established as our vision “...[dedication] to the alleviation of human suffering and the advancement of human well-being through research and practice grounded in contextual behavioral science.” Over the past thirteen years, we’ve seen great progress in the accumulation of data supporting CBS theories and clinical approaches, the dissemination of CBS interventions to problems of high social importance, the refinement of CBS as a scientific strategy, and the growth and maturation of ACBS as a community.
