ACT in Context: The Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Podcast

Printer-friendly version

Welcome to the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy podcast! 


About the podcast:

ACT in Context is freely available to anyone, and its episodes will take listeners on a journey from the history and development of ACT through its clinical application and the future of the work. This podcast will primarily focus on ACT, but it will often touch upon several related issues such as behavioral principles, the underlying theory of language (Relational Frame Theory) and philosophy of science.  We hope that informal learners, potential consumers, researchers and clinicians alike find it useful. 

As of 2014 our new hosts are doing a Clinical Conversations series. In these open and unscripted discussions, clinicians speak openly about the struggles and joys of doing clinical work. The topics discussed are often missing in training—the challenges we face as clinicians doing acceptance work for ourselves and the impact of clinical work on the clinician’s private life--both positive and negative. For many of us, doing therapy is a life’s work, which can transform us as much as it transforms our clients. These conversations reflect on that transformation with honesty and vulnerability.

Weekly, JoAnne Dahl, Ph.D., has been putting together an amazing podcast series, ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope. She has well over 50 episodes (I've lost count) and has new ones coming out all of the time.  She digs deep into ACT for both the self-help and the therapist audience.  She has fantastic guests and covers an enormous array of topics within ACT/RFT/CBS.  She has made a podcast that we wish ACBS had done, but it was all JoAnne. Congratulations and thank you JoAnne for all that you do!
