ACT in Context is freely available to anyone, and its episodes will take listeners on a journey from the history and development of ACT through its clinical application and the future of the work. This podcast will primarily focus on ACT, but it will often touch upon several related issues such as behavioral principles, the underlying theory of language(Relational Frame Theory) and philosophy of science. We hope that informal learners, potential consumers, researchers and clinicians alike find it useful.

Joanne and Tim are great hosts that make the podcasts feel less like an interview with the guest and more like you are sitting down with them for tea and getting an informal consultation. I have used ACT in my practice for 20+yrs. and still learn so much from you both. Wonderful work.
