WellnessCast™ Conversation with Dr. Robyn Walser, PhD, leading authority and author on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
Join Stanford Law Professor Joe Bankman and Sarah Weinstein, a lawyer and psychotherapist, for their engaging WellnessCast™ Conversation, in three parts, with Dr. Robyn Walser, PhD, leading authority and author on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
In Part 1, Dr. Walser shares a hard emotional moment and gives an overview of ACT, including the foundational ACT principle that thoughts, feelings and sensations are not like math problems to be solved but rather more like sunsets to be experienced.
In Part 2, Dr. Walser explains how ACT deals with anxiety and anger, including the important ACT concept that feelings themselves experientially are not damaging or harmful. It’s our relationship with them that becomes problematic.
Lastly, in Part 3, Dr. Walser discusses how ACT deals with trauma and the ways in which mindfulness is a critical component of ACT. Part 3 ends with Joe and Sarah talking about their experiences trying out Dr. Anna Lembke’s wellness technique from last month, and with Dr. Walser’s suggested technique that she uses to thrive in her own challenging career.
