Acceptance and Commitment Therapy - A Practical Introduction in Clinical Practice: A Weekend Professional Workshop
Acceptance and mindfulness-based practices are rapidly making their way into mental health care, medicine, and society both to alleviate human suffering and nurture psychological health and wellness. This body of work also offers a fresh perceptive on psychological suffering and a set of powerful clinical strategies that support meaningful life changes. In this workshop, we will learn about one particular approach and set of practices based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT is a newer third-generation evidence-based behavior therapy that balances mindfulness and acceptance processes with commitment and behavior change processes to (a) weaken the unhelpful influence of thoughts and emotional avoidance in guiding actions, while (b) promoting greater experiential and psychological flexibility in the service of (c) valued ends. It is both a form of therapy and an approach to living well, with evidence showing that it is useful for many forms of psychological and emotional suffering. In short, ACT teaches clients how to be with their hurts and do what works to live well, richly, and meaningfully, without first having to defeat sources of emotional and psychological pain. This 2-day workshop will introduce ACT, both as a model and intervention technology, and illustrate its use across a broad set of problem areas that are commonly seen in mental health settings (e.g., anxiety, depression, anger). This work can be challenging for both therapists and clients alike, for much of ACT work involves contacting difficult and painful psychological content without defense and for a purpose other than psychological relief. Thus, understanding the application and integration of the ACT model of psychological health and suffering is essential for effective ACT work. Our time together will be filled with didactic teachings, live and video demonstrations, and practical experiential exercises that will be done individually, in dyads, and small groups. The exercises will highlight the integration of mindfulness and acceptance strategies (along with kindness and compassion exercises) to disarm forms of human suffering and also to promote greater clarity of values and action in the service of living well. Participants will be encouraged (but never forced or coerced) to engage the material at a personal level, as it applies to their own lives, and then also in the context of their clinical work. All we ask is that participants are willing to get inside the ACT model and approach, if only for a weekend. Clinical worksheets and other practical tools will be provided.

The Mantle of Command: FDR at War 1941-1942
Hamiltons talk at The Mount is about his latest book: The Mantle of Command: FDR at War, 1941-1942. Based on years of archival research and interviews with the last surviving aides and Roosevelt family members, Nigel Hamilton offers a definitive account of FDRs masterfuland underappreciatedcommand of the Allied war effort.Hamilton takes readers inside FDRs White House Oval Studyhis personal command centerand into the meetings where he battled with Churchill about strategy and tactics and overrode the near mutinies of his own generals and secretary of war. Time and again, FDR was proven right and his allies and generals were wrong.When the generals wanted to attack the Nazi-fortified coast of France, FDR knew the Allied forces werent ready.When Churchill insisted his Far East colonies were loyal and would resist the Japanese, Roosevelt knew it was a fantasy.As Hamiltons account reaches its climax with the Torch landings in North Africa in late 1942, the tide of war turns in the Allies favor and FDRs genius for psychology and military affairs is clear. The lecture, which will be held in the historic Stable, will be followed by a tea and book signing. If you are a Mount member and do not have your access code to purchase tickets at the reduced member price, please call 413-551-5100 or email info@edithwharton.org.

Fighting France at 100: Rediscovering Whartons War Reporting

Edith Whartons relief work in France during the First World War is increasingly celebrated, but her work as war reporter remains less understood. Few people have read Fighting France: From Dunkerque to Belfort, her little-known war text from 1915. Written as a result of her five trips in to the war zones in the first half of 1915 and originally published in Scribners Magazine, the collection of essays presents a fascinating and unique perspective on wartime France by one of Americas great novelists. Drawing on archival research for a new critical edition to be published in late 2015, this talk illuminates this important work, considering its publication history and reception, and positioning the text within the context of Whartons oeuvre and the broader field of First World War writing.

Alice Kelly has a PhD in British and American First World War literature by women from the University of Cambridge. Her critical edition of Fighting France: From Dunkerque to Belfort will be published by Edinburgh University Press in late 2015. She is currently based at Yale University working on a study of death and commemoration in First World War literature.
