    Functionally Speaking #15 - Interview with Ingrid Ord

    Functionally Speaking #15 - Interview with Ingrid Ord

    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 to help unravel those types of issues.  I hope you enjoy the podcast. 
    I have a few trainings coming up during 2016, and a lot of exciting projects for 2017.  Contact me for more information.

    Functionally Speaking #12 - Interview with Anthony Biglan

    Functionally Speaking #12 - Interview with Anthony Biglan

    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 I think you’ll find this podcast
    particularly interesting.  And, if you
    like this interview, check out Tony’s interview on Trent Codd’s CBT Radio podcast.  I look forward to your
    feedback.

    Functionally Speaking #11 - Interview with Beate Ebert

    Functionally Speaking #11 - Interview with Beate Ebert

    Beate Ebert is
    doing a remarkable job helping reduce suffering and improve quality of living
    for people in Sierra Leone.  She’s
    helping establish mental health infrastructures, training professionals in
    Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and doing important implementations of
    public health initiatives to reduce the spread of Ebola in West Africa.  She and I worked together with Joanne Dahl
    presenting ACT workshops in Sierra Leone. 
    Beate and I reminisce about that experience and talk about the
    challenges of disseminating the contextual behavioral sciences.  Beate explains how she used ACT to influence
    people’s actions to reduce the spread of the Ebola virus.  (Check out Steve Hayes’s blog about this
    topic here.)

    We also discuss our experience in the amputee camps,
    conversations with adults who were child-combatants, prevention measures, and
    our interaction with Father Peter Conte, a great community organizer in
    Freetown. (To read a little bit about Peter, look here). 

    If you’d like to assist in this Beate’s initiatives, check
    out the Commit + Act organization’s website and Facebook page.

    Functionally Speaking #10 - Interview with Lauren Porosoff

    Lauren Porosoff, a junior high school teacher in New York, blends the ACT model into her curriculum.  I always admire people who do something pioneering with the ACT work. She and I talk about how she does it, and she provides resources for weaving ACT into educational scenarios.  Check out her book, Curriculum at Your Core: Meaningful Teaching in the Age of Standards, and her website, Teaching Tolerance.  If you'd like to learn more about her approach, she wrote a neat article, Systems vs. Heaps: Aligning Professional Development with School Values.  She's also giving a workshop on Friday, May 1, 2015 about giving English teachers ideas for designing a values-based curriculum.  It's called The Story Your English Course Tells and you can register for it here.
