In 2008, Kelly Wilson’s Mindfulness for Two quietly appeared as part of the growing acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) literature. In contrast to the 1999 Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and its evolved 2011 edition—surveys of the theory and practice of ACT —Mindfulness for Two is a personal reflection on the two-way experience of an ACT session. What can happen when you slow down, let go of your usual patterns of managing hard content, and shift your attention from fixing and consoling to listening and appreciating? Your client is truly heard and, sometimes, can hear themselves for the first time. Join Kelly in these smaller, intimate settings, to explore what richness shows up unexpectedly in the margins of a mindful session.
Registration for these workshops will include copies of Mindfulness for Two and its companion volume Things Might Go Terribly, Horribly Wrong*. Reading Mindfulness for Two is a prerequisite for this workshop. The text is appropriate for all levels of practitioner, regardless of your familiarity with ACT. Students are most welcome. Your own personal experiences and perspectives will be primary subjects of discussion in the workshop.
* Your two books will be shipped to you shortly after you register so you can start reading right away. Because of this, we’re modifying our usual cancellation policy for these workshops: You are still free to cancel and get refunds according to our usual terms, but if your books have been shipped, they are not returnable, and we will withhold $35.00 from your refund—50% of the cover price of both books.
