ACBS Training Page

ACBS logo

My training page at the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science contains different training resources, but I use this page so that people who have been to trainings of mine can get oriented to the work. If you cannot see the attachments on these ACBS pages it is because you are not yet logged in … see below.

I generally add talks and resources as I do events and leave just the last couple of years here, but if I forget to add something you want, let me know and I will try to get them up.

At the bottom of this page are links to many materials you might find useful, and links to other areas of the site where you will find more materials.

However, you will not be able to view or download these materials without becoming a member of ACBS. That is because access to attachments, videos, audio, the professional listserv, and so on are a privilege of paid ACBS membership.  Becoming a member takes less than 3 minutes, and is an easy one-step process. The link is below.

WORKSHOP ATTENDEES: If you received a special link, use it to join rather than the link below. Then whether you just joined or are already and ACBS member log in first. If you did not get a special link, use the link that is only a couple of lines down from here.

If this “you have to be a member” pitch sounds like a crass attempt to get you to give money to ACBS, well it really is not. It is a crass attempt to get you to be part of a community, and that is much different. With Values-Based Dues, you choose how much you pay for your membership based on what your values are, how you think ACBS furthers those values, and your ability to pay. $10 is the minimum but most professionals average near the $60 recommended; most students average near the $30 recommended. If you are new and don’t know whether this organization and this website is important to you, it is perfectly reasonable to use lower amounts initially and then adjust your dues as you learn what it has to offer (when ACBS went to values-based dues, dues payments went up — there is a nice ACT-consistent lesson in there). Of course if you are very poor, go all the way to the minimum.

Simply go to www.contextualscience.org/join to complete the process. If you have an account already, be sure to log in first to see the attachments to this page and throughout the site. You can technically have a website account and not yet have joined — watch out for that no man’s land because you will not see the attachments.

If you do not have a credit card or cannot afford even the $10 (in the Developing Nations, that is not uncommon for example) then just send an email to our Executive Director at acbs@contextualpsychology.org. The requirement for a credit card is to avoid spam spiders from joining and loading spam onto the site since once you are a member you can upload anything that seems relevant to the work, creating pages and so on.

I hope that you find these materials interesting and helpful in your journey and that the make a difference in the lives of those you serve.

Peace, love and life.
