In support of your sessions, therapy and/or recovery using ACT (Acceptance Commitment Therapy) we invite you to read the books and watch the videos.
ACT is not a spectator sport or quick fix 50-minute therapy session, rather it is a set of insights that become behaviours which in turn expose you to changing consequences. ACT is a training therapy where we all practice it. The videos below are to be watched, more than once. They may educate, they may inspire and they will certainly invite you to change.
Throwing Out The Anchor – 5 Senses Direct Experiencing.
This exercise invites you to move out of your mental evaluation and comparison process and to check in with your here and now direct experience. Rarely are we in need of higher states of anxiety, anger or need. Often our minds have lost contact with the here and now. Please learn to check in with the here and now. Bill Stevens guides you with a short mindfulness exercise that is ACT consistent and one of the 6 core ACT practices. Click here for the audio file.
