ACT Peer Consultation Group for Atlanta, GA, USA

Format of the Group
We typically read a chapter from a book (e.g. Learning ACT, ACT made simple) between groups and then set the monthly meeting topic based on the most recent reading. For example, if we read a chapter on defusion, we then use the group to explore working with defusion.
We allow time for case consultation (to explore how we might apply the current concept to a particular case) and we also engage in experiential work together (including role plays or practicing an exercise/metaphor). We also bring any related resources to share with one another (e.g., worksheets or articles).

Membership
Requirement for membership: an Atlanta-based mental health practitioner who either actively uses ACT in their practice or is seeking help in how to learn and practice ACT. All skill levels are welcome and we have a diverse experience level among our members.

Meeting Information
We meet once/month, typically the fourth Friday, from 10am to noon.
We have members clustered primarily in the Brookhaven and Decatur areas at this point, and we are flexible with meeting at both locations.
