Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is difficult for many to understand because it’s not how we typically think about or approach problems. ACT focuses on six psychological processes that are believed to be at the core of our struggles and mental well-being.
One major benefit of ACT is psychological flexibility, but the journey can be challenging to many. With this flexibility, though, folks encountering difficult times—mental condition or not—can better adapt to whatever life throws their way.
Join us as Jason Krompinger, PhD, facilitates an open conversation about ACT, discusses its effectiveness beyond OCD treatments, and answers questions about how through the psychological processes of this therapy, we can all become more mentally flexible.

The coronavirus pandemic has disproportionately pummeled LGBTQ+ communities, leaving a population already vulnerable suffering even deeper through health issues related to bias, access to care, and mental health. Many feel as if they have lost support through school and community closures, loss of jobs, and isolation from social groups.
In this previously recorded session, we talk with Jack Turban, MD, who answers audience questions about LGBTQ+ mental health and addresses the mental toll that COVID-19 has had on the community.

Dyslexia is far more common than many realize, affecting nearly 10% of the population. Many folks with the condition may see words or letters differently. But dyslexia doesn’t just impact reading and, if unaddressed, can affect a person’s learning abilities and self-esteem.
So how can we make a complex condition feel less complicated to everyone involved in its management?
Join us as Roberto Olivardia, PhD, explains what causes the challenges in learning to read and spell written words, shares ways to recognize the signs of dyslexia, provides tales from personal experience to help with condition management, and answers audience questions about dyslexia.

Dissociative identity disorder (DID) is often misunderstood and can be easily missed—or misdiagnosed—by experts. While many of us have come to believe that folks with DID jump between personas and personalities, a very small portion of those with the condition actually exhibit this behavior. The fact that symptoms can be easily missed without training can lead experts to treat the accompanying conditions, but not DID itself.
So if dissociative identity disorder is rarely outwardly expressed, how can we support those who are silently battling the condition? How can we better understand DID to help destigmatize it and its co-occurring mental conditions?
Join us as Dr. Milissa Kaufman explains the symptoms and impact of dissociative identity disorder, highlights why it may be difficult to recognize DID, and answers audience questions about tips for coping with dissociative disorders.
