Dr. Giulia Suro, a member of the clinical staff at Capital Institute, has written an excellent article on using the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to cope with the COVID19 crisis.
The article is called “When Your Mind Feels Like an Unfriendly Place”
ACT is one of a group of new forms of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based on the practices of mindfulness and acceptance. A core idea in ACT is that when we struggle against our feelings and experiences, we often make our life worse rather than better.
Dr. Suro has done a beautiful job of briefly describing how you might use ACT practices to face these very difficult and uncertain times. For the full article, click here.
Dr. Suro is an expert ACT therapist. She has recently published a self-help workbook titled Learning to Thrive: An Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Workbook.
