180. Choosing to Live Your Values
It’s only the second week of the New Year, and many of us have already failed at (or given up on) achieving our New Year’s Resolutions. We often rely on sheer willpower to achieve these types of goals. However, willpower simply isn’t enough. On this week’s episode of Psychologists Off the Clock, Diana and Benjamin Schoendorff, co-author of The Essential Guide to the ACT Matrix and The ACT Practitioner's Guide to the Science of Compassion, discuss the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) matrix. The matrix is a complex therapeutic tool used to help clients contact experiences which keep them from living in ways that serve their values. In this episode, Benjamin breaks down the ACT matrix in a way that is accessible for all. Grab a cup of coffee, and join us to learn, practice, and grow today! Listen and Learn: Diana and Yael’s take on the ACT matrix, what it is, and how it’s helped them to live in ways that serve their values Benji’s expert definition of psychological flexibility  Some practical exercises you can use to become more psychologically flexible right now Benji’s breakdown of each quadrant in the matrix and what they represent  About Diana’s personal experience working through the matrix How the ACT matrix can be helpful for couples, parents, organizations, achieving New Years Resolutions, and much more! What the “Dead Man Rule” is and how it might be impacting your mental health Why values are often more important than willpower when it comes to achieving your goals What ‘loops’ and ‘hooks’ are and how we get stuck in them (and how to behave in service of your values instead!)
