The following is a PDF version of a blog originally published by my work, Pathways Consulting in Kenosha, Wi. It’s an easy to read primer on Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, and contains a helpful metaphor for explaining psychological flexibility processes. You can download it here, or by clicking the image below.
Here is a write up with some psychoeducation on emotions, and a simple exercise designed to help clients slow down their emotional experience and attend to many different components. I use this often with clients. Easy enough to understand for young teens and older.
I’ve been working on a new method of applying ACT with clients in a structured but still flexible way. I call it The ACT Wheel, and it’s been really enhancing the way I work and keeping me more consistent.
I’ve written a small booklet on what the ACT Wheel is and how to use it. You can download it for free here.'
