Acceptance & Commitment Therapy Group                

Mondays 3-4:15 p.m.                          

John Betzel & Mikayla Baugh

The ACT perspective is that the same process creates most dimensions of human suffering, so though depression and anxiety may look a little bit different on the surface, what creates and maintains them is similar. Also, it's inevitable that other problems -- low self-esteem, eating problems, substance problems, relationship problems -- will go along with depression and anxiety, so those issues are welcome in this group as well. ACT is a cognitive behavior therapy with a grounding in research and which has been researched for a variety of problems across the spectrum of human suffering -- depression, anxiety, substance abuse, smoking cessation, epilepsy, psychosis, math anxiety, etc., and all the research shows some benefit.

This group is a fast paced, 4 session seminar is intended to help increase your understanding and knowledge about anxiety. The goal is to provide you with some skills to recognize and manage symptoms you may be experiencing. The workshop was designed so you do not have to share what brought you into counseling or anything else you do not want to share.  We will have practice exercises and assignments between meetings to hone and practice specific skills that will help members understand their symptoms and to fight anxiety.  These skills are known to promote and increase wellness and healthy living.
