Ep 056: PsychFlex in Action 4: Seeing thoughts for what they are

Welcome to the fourth episode in our series looking at Psychological Flexibility in Action. This time, we turn our attention to the benefits of disentangling ourselves from our thoughts and seeing them for what they are – not what they say they are.

Richard and Pilar explore this concept of ‘defusion’ and how it’s made easier by the mindful focus explore in our last episode, but also how all the processes of Acceptance and Commitment Theory support each other.

Remember that you can find out all about the concept of Psychological Flexibility on this page, where we outline the skills that facilitate its development. There’s also a list relevant podcast episodes and blog posts, as well as details of training courses on the topic.

Do get in touch with your questions and comments, either via Twitter or our online contact page.

Thanks for listening!
