This page comprises the main resource links you need to get started in learning about ACT and becoming part of the local (Australia and New Zealand) and international ACT community.
The three main places you will find ACT resources on the internet are the main ACBS site, www.contextualpsychology.org , the international listserve at http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/acceptanceandcommitmenttherapy/, and Russ Harris’s website at http://www.actmindfully.com.au/worksheets,_handouts,_book_chapters. You’ll find a wealth of free downloadable resources on Russ Harris’s ACT training website, including MP3 recordings of mindfulness exercises, and numerous handouts and worksheets relating to his various books.
You can add your own resources and find more resources at www.contextualpsychology.org. When you navigate to that site, go to the “Resources” menu on the right hand side of the window and choose the area you’re interested in.
The resources you will find on the international and local listserve (http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/acceptanceandcommitmenttherapy_ANZO/join/) will usually be part of a discussion about a particular research, theoretical or clinical topic. If you’re not subscribed to these lists you will miss out on knowing about these resources. However, once you become aware of them, you can track them down by searching the listserve archives.
If you want to know if a particular resource exists or is in development, ask on the listserves – it’s a helpful and knowledgeable community.
If there are resources that you believe are only relevant to local (ANZ) people, you can post them on this site by contacting the site administrator at email@example.com.
