USA - Maine - Portland

ACT Peer Consultation Group for Portland, ME, USA

Format of the Group
The group provides a supportive place for members to learn together using a variety of formats including case presentations, discussion of relevant ACT topics, practice of mindfulness exercises, occasional practice of other experiential exercises, and other formats.  Please review this site ( for more information and sample agendas.

The group is a mix of 10+ individuals from various mental health and healthcare disciplines. The group has recently decided to be OPEN to new members. We ask that new members (a) already have introductory training in ACT and some self-study, (b) have an interest in gaining knowledge and improving skills with ACT, and (c) make a commitment to regular monthly attendance (i.e., attending more often than not). This group is only open to professionals in healthcare and mental healthcare fields (not open to the general public).

Meeting Information
We currently run an ACT Peer Consultation Group here in Portland, Maine, on the third Friday of each month from 8 to 9:30 a.m.

Contact Information
