Functionally Speaking #15 - Interview with Ingrid Ord

9/7/2016
More
Speaking to Ingrid Ord was a wonderful opportunity to get a perspective of how a Christian views Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and about her book, ACT with Faith. I have a history of working the the Survivors Network for those Abused by Priests (SNAP; the organization that was highlighted in the Academy Award winning movie, Spotlight), and have worked with very distraught Christians and understand the obstacles of applying ACT to people of certain faith. Ingrid wrote a really neat book...

I am very excited to have Tony Biglan on Functionally Speaking. He wrote a fantastic book called The Nurture Effect: How the Science of Human Behavior Can Improve Our Lives & Our World. I highly recommend the book, and you can order it by going to the ACBS Click-Thru page first. Check out his cool website that hosts a neat video about the topic, and even shows endorsements from many scholarly people, including Senator Jeff Merkley. Tony’s answers to my questions are really enlightening, and...

This edition of Functionally Speaking includes two interviews.

Kelly Wilson joins me to talk about his book Mindfulness for Two and then I interview Julie Vargas, B.F. Skinner’s daughter, about her book Behavior Analysis for Effective Teaching. Enjoy!!

The Art & Science of Valuing in Psychotherapy - Part Two

12/20/2010
More
Before the Association for Contextual Behavioral Sciences conference in The Netherlands, there were many requests to record the workshops. Joanne Dahl, Jennifer Plumb, Ian Stewart, and Tobias Lundgren led a fantastic workshop entitled The Art & Science of Valuing in Psychotherapy. They wrote a book with the same title published by New Harbinger, and it is excellent. This is Part Two of the workshop. Just to clarify, all I did was record this workshop and asked for permission to post it here...

Functionally Speaking #6

4/19/2009
More
You might need some references for this version of Functionally Speaking. The intro alludes to a Washington Post article called Pearls Before Breakfast that I found particularly condescending and is related to a series of posts on the ACT Listserve called “A Violinist in the Metro” from March 2008. During the discussion about mindfulness in the podcast, you might like to have the Inflexahex Case Conceptualization Worksheet available, and it is available at the ACT in Practice...

This edition of Functionally Speaking starts with a brief explanation of the term "truth" from a functional contextual perspective, and then is followed by an interview with Niklas Torneke about his new book ABC’s of Human Behavior: Behavior Principles for the Practicing Clinician. (Please forgive me if I call the book ‘excellent’ too many times. It might be distracting, but it is that good!) Finally, I’ll relay a story about a kid who learns a lot about life by playing...
