Episode Info

Episode Info: We’re taking a deep dive into Acceptance and Commitment Therapy with its Founder, Dr. Hayes. He is a Nevada Foundation professor at the Department of Psychology at the University of Nevada and author of 44 books and nearly 600 scientific articles. He developed the Relational Frame Theory, an account of human higher cognition and has guided its extension into Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which is a popular evidence-based form of psychotherapy that uses mindfulness, acceptance and values-based methods. Dr. Hayes has been President of Division 25 of the American Psychological Association, the American Association of Applied and Preventive Psychology, the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy and the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science. He was listed by the Institute of Scientific Information as the 30th highest impact psychologist in the world. On this episode, you’ll learn about how ACT can help people with pain and other conditions that will reach for a meaningful life. How you can develop greater resilience even during periods of intense emotional or physical pain. How ACT can complement and potentially optimize any physical medicine or traditional cognitive behavioral therapy approach to pain care. We will also discuss Dr. Hayes’ book called, A Liberated Mind: How to Pivot Toward What Matters, where he lays out the psychological flexibility skills and make it one of the most powerful approaches research has yet to offer. I had an opportunity to read an advance copy of A Liberated Mind and it is a great book. I recommend to everyone reading this to hop on over to Amazon or whatever retail you order your books from and pick your copy of the book. It’s available in stores now. You can learn more about Dr. Hayes by going directly to his website at I’m excited to share this episode with you, so let’s dive right in and let’s begin with Dr. Steven Hayes.
