ACT Peer Consultation Group for Seattle, WA, USA

Format of the Group
Our consultation group is based on the consultation group model developed at Portland Psychotherapy (www.portlandpsychotherapyclinic.com). The two priorities of the group are to learn and practice ACT; we have adopted the Portland Psychotherapy group consultation model because it provides a structure and format to help facilitate learning ACT and to reduce or avoid some of the challenges that occur with consultation groups dedicated to learning a specific therapy. We are guided by our values of acting with compassion and courage, and being open and willing to support each other in our learning. The group is divided into 2 segments: the first segment (lasting about 1 hour) is dedicated to learning/sharing brief ACT exercises, discussing ACT-related topics, and ACT-focused case consultation. The second segment (lasting about 1 hour) is experiential practice of ACT skills, typically through a role play of clinical situations/experiences. Although we follow a very structured format we have a lot of fun and have tasty snacks at all of our meetings!

Membership
Mental health care provider or researcher; open to all levels of experience with ACT, although some familiarity with contextual behavioral science may be helpful.

Meeting Information
1st Friday of each month from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at Seattle Psychology, PLLC located in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle (corner of N. 45th and Stone Way).
