ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope

JoAnne Dahl, Ph.D.

ACT: Taking Hurt to Hope – Human suffering: finding ways to get unstuck and move on

It hurts to live. Living a full life means feeling a full range of feelings. It seems that we have become less and less tolerant of feelings and sensations we don’t like. Maybe instead of trying to feel GOOD all the time, we should try and FEEL good, and actually allow all our natural feelings and sensations move through us, rather than just those we like. Join me as I discuss with Dr Steven Hayes, A Nevada Foundation Professor at the University of Nevada, and founder of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and author of Getting out of your mind and into your life, among many other books. Discover how you who are suffering right now from a life challenge can help yourself feel that hurt but limit your suffering. Dr Steve Hayes will provide you with the 3 basic principles of ACT therapy as well as give you some concrete advice about how to take hurt to hope. You can read more about ACT here
