Mindfulness, Self, and Contact with the Present Moment

by Steven Hayes
In this fourth video of the ACT in Action series, you’ll learn about the mindfulness components of ACT.

Part of the 6-video series: ACT in Action


Mindfulness, Self, and Contact with the Present Moment
In a session with Tony, a client in recovery from addiction, ACT founder Stephen Hayes demonstrates techniques for helping clients slow down and connect with themselves at the beginning of sessions so that they can engage more deeply in the work of therapy. Utilizing an “eyes-closed” exercise, Hayes helps Tony contact his observing self—the transcendent awareness that resides below thoughts and emotions and can serve to ground us in troubled times. With commentary throughout, Hayes offers a script for bringing mindfulness practices into the therapy room.

ACT cofounder Kelly Wilson then conducts a powerful piece of clinical supervision with a struggling ACT therapist. Seeking support for her work with a hostile, resistant and demeaning client, the therapist quite convincingly role-plays her own client, while Wilson introduces several brilliant techniques to help her manage her anxiety and engage more deeply with the fear and loneliness behind her client’s hostility.

These ACT mindfulness techniques should be in every therapist’s toolbox!

"These videos are an incredible learning resource for any practitioner. You will witness some of the world’s leading ACT therapists weaving their magic, and gain valuable insight into the many different ways there are of doing ACT. It’s a world apart from reading a book; essential viewing for anyone interested in honing their ACT skills."
-- Russ Harris, MD, author of The Happiness Trap & ACT Made Simple

"Counselors, psychologists and social workers attend professional development activities for a variety of reasons, some of which include learning something new, learning more about something they already know, and becoming reinvigorated by their work. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find professional development activities that meet even one of these goals. ACT in Action is a 6-video series that meets all three goals and more. The didactic portion of the series is clear and informative, and the counseling demonstrations bring it all to life. After watching just one video, I was able to immediately incorporate ACT strategies, conceptualizations, and analogies into my work with clients. With tight budgets leaving little money for conferences and travel, the series offers quality in-house training for all staff, not just 'the lucky one' who attended the conference."
-- Jennifer M. Whitney, PhD, Associate Director, The Counseling Center, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
