    Episode 214 | How To Develop An Effective 1-Day Workshop And Improve Mental Wellbeing For People With Pain, Anxiety, Depression And PTSD Using Acceptance And Commitment Therapy With Lilian Dindo, PhD

    Episode 214 | How To Develop An Effective 1-Day Workshop And Improve Mental Wellbeing For People With Pain, Anxiety, Depression And PTSD Using Acceptance And Commitment Therapy With Lilian Dindo, PhD

    We have another incredible interview in our Radical Relief series, which has been running all through the month of January and February. The Radical Relief series focuses on practitioners, academics and researchers who are using three times tested and evidence-based approaches for the treatment of both physical and mental wellbeing with the focus on chronic pain. Recovering pain neuroscience education, mindfulness, acceptance and commitment therapy. In this episode, we're zeroing in on acceptance and commitment therapy for the treatment of mental wellbeing.
    You'll meet ACT Psychologist, Dr. Lilian Dindo. Her career has been focused on developing pragmatic and innovative ways to improve the mental health and functioning of patients suffering from psychiatric and chronic medical conditions. Through her research and development of applying a one-day transdiagnostic acceptance and commitment training presented as a workshop, she has found this to be less stigmatizing than traditional therapy. Also, ensures treatment adherence and completion for people suffering from both physical as well as mental health issues.
    Dr. Dindo has been involved in several clinical trials, examining the efficacy of one day ACT treatment workshops, which have included those who are suffering from chronic pain, traumatic brain injury, orthopedic surgery, migraines, depression and anxiety, as well as a post-traumatic stress disorder. You'll learn how to conduct a one day ACT workshop, the acceptability of this type of approach, as well as the positive outcomes and why this approach may be soon competing for the evidence-based gold standard treatment for the effective treatment of mental health due to its amazing completion rate.
    If you are a mental health professional or a physical medicine professional and you're interested in learning more about acceptance and commitment therapy and how you can create your own workshop, make sure to check out my book, Radical Relief: A Guide to Overcome Chronic Pain, which is deeply rooted in the principles of acceptance and commitment therapy. One of the key reasons I wrote Radical Relief is so that you, the clinician, or the practitioner would have a manual for employing this type of work in your clinical practice or for delivering it in workshop or community settings as Dr. Lilian Dindo did. You can pick up your copy of Radical Relief available now on Amazon and in most countries. Without further ado, let's begin, and let's meet Lilian and learn all about ACT-based workshops.

    This marks about the halfway point in Our Radical Relief series. We are recovering three-time tested and science-backed approaches for the treatment of chronic pain, which include pain neuroscience education, mindfulness and acceptance and commitment therapy.

As Director of Admissions, her scholarly agenda includes physical therapy student success, resilience to stress and effective domain skills across the curriculum. That has published two papers on mindfulness for the student physical therapist and its impact on resiliency and usefulness in clinical practice.
    In this episode, you'll learn about the neuroscience supporting mindfulness, how mindfulness works and why training in mindfulness is important for both the student physical therapist, as well as a licensed physical therapist out in the field.

    Episode 211 | How to Apply Cognitive Defusion Techniques To Target Pain Catastrophizing In Physiotherapy Practice With Davide Lanfranco, PT, MCSP

    We're discussing how to target pain catastrophizing by using a core process of acceptance and commitment therapy called cognitive diffusion. My expert guest is physiotherapist Davide Lanfranco. Davide is an Italian physiotherapist who works in London. He is a member of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy and is one of the Founders of FisioScience International, an online platform which aims to spread evidence-based knowledge about pain.

    Cognitive fusion is a time-tested, science-backed approach that has helped thousands of people experiencing chronic pain, as well as those suffering from stress, depression, anxiety, trauma, and addiction. Cognitive fusion is a key part of my latest book, Radical Relief, which is rooted in the principles of acceptance and commitment therapy. Radical Relief, which is written for both practitioners and for people living with pain uses metaphors, colorful imagery and includes more than 40 mindfulness activities to help you identify the blocks that may be keeping you stuck and offers tools for taking meaningful action toward a more fulfilling life.
