Who Should Be Contacting the Present Moment?
One of the 6 Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) processes is Contacting the Present Moment. And guess what?! ACT has a huge evidence base for helping people with chronic pain and chronic illness, as well as mental health. But how do we do this (in a way that isn't formal meditation)? That's what we're exploring this week.
In this episode we talk about:
- the 6 processes in ACT
- "mindfulness" for chronic pain and illness
- why we need to drop the struggle
- dropping anchor (experiential)
The recommended self-help reading is "The Happiness Trap" by Russ Harris.
