In this video, you’ll learn:

  • How the threat of hardship narrows behavior and keeps clients in cycles of “stuckness”
  • Why storytelling can be a powerful avoidance tool, and how to recognize when it is occurring in session
  • What you can do to change a client’s relationship with their experience of hardship
  • When to disrupt a pattern of storytelling so you can open up possibilities to explore 
  • How shifting focus to granular details will help you and your client to see their values

A personal note about the course from Kelly Wilson:

When you became a therapist, I am guessing that your secret hope was that you’d see lives changing, and changing in ways that would swell your heart.

To make that happen, we need to go beyond symptom reduction. We need to contend with deeper motivations — with the basic human yearnings that give life meaning.

Helping clients to see what matters to them, to explore their own values, is a powerful way to help them create change in their lives.

As I see it, all of the other ACT processes are made practical in the service of finding meaning and purpose. To me, the rest of the model hangs on that question of “why?”

Why should our clients do the hard things we ask them to do? Why should they endure the pain of change? Why should they suffer the inevitable flat spots that come with change and growth?

This is what inspired me to create Exploring Values in ACT — to help clinicians of all stripes do more of the work that is worthy of these questions.

Inside the course, you’ll develop a deep understanding of values and how to make clients’ quests for meaning more central to your ACT work.

And you’ll leave with principles that will help you lead impactful conversations and respond productively when you hit the wall — so you’ll know how to meet it and how to put it to work for your clients. 

Enjoy the sneak peek, and I hope you’ll join me inside the course when the doors open.
