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.

just found this app and was in love. educational and a great aid to Tx. the new hosts (new to me) sonja pretentious and exclusionary. they will mention things in convo (youtube videos)without citing and overall leaves listener feeling left out or dumb.

Hosts talk over their guests...

I agree with a previous reviewer. The original run from 2011 was excellent: informative, focused, and clear in its purpose. The hosts (John and Jennifer) were humble and skilled at letting their guests take center stage and impart their knowledge. The reboot with Joanne and Tim is unfocused and irritating. I don’t really know what the purpose of this reboot is. It doesn’t seem to be made in the same spirit as the original, which was to educate and inform people about principles of ACT in practice. The new hosts talk over and interrupt their guests a lot, fail to ask questions that dig deeper into their guests’ knowledge of ACT, and often derail the conversation to focus on themselves. I leave feeling like I learn nothing new about ACT by the end of each (overlong) episode, but I sure did learn a lot about Tim and Joanne (especially Joanne) and maybe a little about the guest. The original podcast was about ACT. This reboot is about therapists that happen to practice ACT.

Rank #11: 29: with DJ Moran

Podcast cover
Read more

Daniel J. (DJ) Moran takes a deep dive with us into the discourse of ACT as an empirically supported treatment and how its underlying philosophy of functional contextualism can be used to empower clinicians as technical ecclectics, who can integrate other empirically supported treatments to expand the repertoire of responding organically to clinical and non-clinical situations without relying on "explanatory fictions" or theoretical ecclectism, while also honoring the experience, wisdom, and utility of non-ACT derived techniques and methods.

Tim and Joanne continue their discussion of the complexities adapting ACT to trauma, focusing on working with perpetrators in this episode. We talk about the challenges of engaging offenders in treatment when they are sometimes mandated to attend or at other times don't view their behavior as problematic and making ACT experiential in a way that encourages perpetrators to understand their behavior functionally so that they can begin practicing ACT in and out of session.
