About the Talk

Many practitioners struggle to either understand how RFT can be clinically applied or to appreciate the value of its application to clinical practice. This may be due to the demands of understanding a counter-intuitive scientific philosophy, unfamiliar terminology and complex experimental procedures. However, I believe what has been lacking is a simple means of understanding RFT principles. I have been experimenting in my practice with spatial analogies of key relational frame types. In this talk I will correlate these frames with common spatial relations, then demonstrate how several Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques, including some developed from this concept, incorporate this spatial analogy principle. Techniques demonstrated will be conversational, didactic and experiential.

About the Presenter

Julian McNally has practised counselling psychology since 1995. He trained in client-centered and solution-oriented approaches before discovering Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in 2003. The mindfulness components of ACT harmonized with his longstanding interest in Zen Buddhism and Taoism (Julian was a Tai Chi instructor for six years).

Shortly after reading Acceptance and Commitment Therapy by Hayes, Strosahl and Wilson, Julian started developing the world’s first online audio ACT training resource, 6 ACT Conversations through RMIT University (online at http://emedia.rmit.edu.au/communication/).

This resource has been utilized and cited by many ACT trainers, practitioners and their clients, and is featured in a chapter Julian co-authored in the recent New Harbinger book, Mindfulness and Acceptance for Counseling College Students. As well seeing individuals for counselling, Julian also supervises other ACT practitioners in Melbourne, and throughout Australia and internationally (Skype, zoom or phone) and is principal psychologist at Melbourne’s first ACT centre, The ACT of Living.
