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!
Meeting 2, Part 2, Questions:
1. Balance is described as including both our biology and our learned experiences. How may we include discussion about spirituality or faith (beyond learned experiences), considering that these areas may be very important to how someone finds balance?
2. How can we help clients with the common label of "perfectionist?"
3. “Stress and rest are two sides of the same coin. You need both to achieve.” Yet, rest can be a real obstacle for clients sometimes. How may we emphasize/integrate/model the importance of rest?
4. How could we explain the benefits of "awareness" to a client in a way that seems "tangible" or able to be received so that it excites them to put work into practicing?
5. How can we make our mindfulness practices trauma-informed?
6. How do you think the meditation ‘Seeing Words as Empty’ may land with OCD clients?
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.
Skill Level: All skill levels are welcome to attend!
