Learning to ACT with Psychological Flexibility for Online Learning During the Pandemic

 

 

At the time of this post, we are at the beginning of the national response to the coronavirus pandemic. Businesses and schools have shuttered, and we are social distancing to give medical experts and scientists the time they need to help us weather this unprecedented time.


Educators and helpers are busy learning and ramping up how to serve students and others online. We are all looking for what works to engage all learners and help them negotiate this new and mostly uncharted territory.


This video shows you my process for using the ACT Matrix to engage others online. The way you join is not to tell them but to have them experience the process of psychological flexibility.


If you want additional hands-on training in online learning and telehealth, Dr. Kevin Polk and I are offering a course that leads to certification and more. Go here to sign up:

New ACT Matrix Publication

I have partnered with National Professional Resources to create the first ACT Matrix Guide for use in education, buisness and other organizations.

Even if I don’t want to do any goal setting, my mind begins to conjure up destinations and images of a more fit body, a better-organized workspace, eating all of those good organic healthy foods. Like a summer cold, it is like a virus that shows up inside of me.

 A quick search of the top 10 resolutions for the new year reveals the following:

 

  • Lose weight and get fit
  • Quit Smoking
  • Learn Something New
  • Eat Healthier
  • Get Out of Debt
  • Spend More Time With Family
  • Travel to New Places
  • Be Less Stressed
  • Volunteer
  • Drink Less
