Join us for our monthly ACT Book Club series where we meet once a month for 3 months (per book) to engage and discuss ACT-relevant themes and topics, hosted by SoCal Chapter Board Member, Dr. Samantha Munson! Discussion questions will be provided ahead of time to help structure and guide the conversation. For this ACT Book Club series, we are reading What Makes You Stronger: How to Thrive in the Face of Change and Uncertainty Using Acceptance and Commitment Therapy by L. Hayes, PhD, J. Ciarrochi, PhD, & A. Bailey, MPsych. Our ACT Book Club reading group qualifies for Psychologist Professional Development CE's under BOP's new CPD Model (1-hour CE per meeting).
While we encourage you to attend all 3 meetings for each book, please feel free to join us at any point in the series!
Book Club Questions / Food for Thought for Meeting 1:
- How could we help a client who seems fused or attached to a conceptualized self as the Advisor?
- The Noticer is a key component of the DNA-V system. How do you approach clients who believe they are good noticers, yet appear to be limited in their awareness of true inner states?
- Which part of the DNA-V model do you see as being most likely to get a client “stuck?” What is it about that part of the process that may present more challenges than the other parts?
- How could we help clients understand the function of the DNA-V parts: Discoverer, Advisor, Noticer, and Valuer?
- Which parts of the hexaflex for flexible thinking (i.e., contact with the present moment, values, committed action, defusion, and acceptance) do you think are most necessary to support each part of the DNA-V model: a) Discoverer; b) Advisor; c) Noticer? For example, is contact with the present moment more essential to one DNA-V component than another?
Who Should Attend?
Anyone interested in learning more about ACT in an informal setting, via thought-provoking and stimulating discussions of ACT-relevant topics and themes.
