Your values and direction

Your values and direction

Welcome to Chapter 5 of 6 ACT Conversations ~ an audio program from RMIT University Counselling Service designed to help you live a balanced and fulfilling life while completing your program of study.

The program uses concepts from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy or 'ACT' for short. But it is not meant to take the place of counselling, psychotherapy or mental health treatment. Although you can listen to the program in any sequence you wish, you should listen to the disclaimer and about this program files before starting.

In this session, Values And Direction, we'll explore the why of what you do. You'll be asked to examine the purposes of your actions. Then we'll ask you to use those purposes as a context for doing what needs to be done and choosing what it is you do. We'll also suggest using those purposes as a context for feelings and thoughts you struggle or suffer with.
