Ep. 65 Liberate Your Mind to Address Depression and Anxiety! Interview with Dr. Steven C. Hayes

Clinical psychologist Steven C. Hayes suffered from panic disorder. He tried all the therapeutic techniques he’d learned in his training and had employed with clients. But the attacks persisted.

So, Dr. Hayes created his own therapeutic orientation—Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Dr. Hayes describes how through ACT we can resonate in the fullness of who we are and turn toward what brings us meaning and purpose in life!

Join us to discuss:
– How to manage our inner critic—what Dr. Hayes calls, “The Dictator.”
– Our desperate need to belong and the ways we often self-sabotage in our efforts to connect with others.
– Why a victim mentality feels vindicating, yet prevents us from getting anything we truly want!
– How “defusing” from our thoughts empowers us!
– Why our “problem solving mind” can wreak havoc on our emotional state.
– Psychological flexibility and why it makes all the difference!
– How we can more effortlessly live in alignment with our chosen values.

Learn ACT therapeutic techniques you can integrate TODAY to reduce anxiety, increase your mood, and embrace the fullness of life’s experiences!
