Feb 24, 8-9:30 am. Fourth Mondays ACT Study Group

—–March—–

March 2, 8-9:30 am. First Mondays ACT Study Group
Group usually meets on the 1st Monday of each month.  Location: The Cumberland Club. Parking in back off Spring Street. Agenda:  Favorite ways to “physicalize” ACT metaphors (e.g., props, use of physical objects and space).

March 18, 6:30 pm+.  EvoS Book Club
Group usually meets on the 4th Wednesday of each month. However, truth be told, we change it a lot.  This month’s meeting was canceled. We hope to reschedule the discussion with Colin Reid and to resume regular book club activities on the other side of the outbreak!  Planned agenda: Colin Reid will be re-invited to discuss his work doing therapy in coordination with psychedelics. In the meantime, perhaps  read this and watch for additional resources via email. Contact Sarah if you are not getting updates about this.

March 20, 8-9:30 am. ACT Peer Consultation Group
Group usually meets on the 3rd Friday of each month. Agenda: Chronic and progressive illness. Location: In response to the coronavirus outbreak, MMC has suspended public use of meeting rooms. Rather than secure an alternate space, it seems prudent to move to an online format for a while. Also, as I suspect many of us will soon be struggling with social isolation and cabin fever, I would prefer to have a less-than-ideal online meeting than no meeting at all. Look for an email with zoom link or similar. I  hope you can attend!

  • To make the process go more smoothly, please sign up for a free basic Zoom account now and download/install software, which will make it quicker and easier to join the meeting.

March 23, 8-9:30 am. Fourth Mondays ACT Study Group
Group usually meets on the 4th Monday of each month. Location: Group usually meets at The Cumberland Club.  In response to the coronavirus outbreak, it seems prudent to move to an online format for a while. Also, as I suspect many of us will soon be struggling with social isolation and cabin fever, I would prefer to have a less-than-ideal online meeting than no meeting at all. Please share your thoughts about this.  In the meantime, be well! Agenda: Well, I suppose we might as well talk about coping with these strange times we live in–how you are doing it, how you are helping clients and patients, and what ACT has to offer. Look for an email with zoom link or similar.
