An Experiential Workshop
Showing Up for the Clinical Conversation
In 2008, Kelly Wilson’s Mindfulness for Two quietly appeared as part of the growing acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) literature. In contrast to the 1999 Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and its evolved 2011 edition—surveys of the theory and practice of ACT —Mindfulness for Two is a personal reflection on the two-way experience of an ACT session. What can happen when you slow down, let go of your usual patterns of managing hard content, and shift your attention from fixing and consoling to listening and appreciating? Your client is truly heard and, sometimes, can hear themselves for the first time. Join Kelly in these smaller, intimate settings, to explore what richness shows up unexpectedly in the margins of a mindful session.
