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.

I like the conversations but I think we could get more

The commentators offer philosophical conversations and also spend a lot of time on how they got to be ACT therapists...which can be interesting at times. What I really want is real world scenarios, techniques, and ACT skills to help me grow as an ACT therapist. Maybe I am in the minority, but it’s also what I loved about the early episodes. One of the most recent episodes spent 20 min on LCD and the possibly therapeutic benefits..interesting for sure, just not what I come to an ACT in context podcast for.

loved this pod prior to 2012

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.
