Community Consultation Group


TIME: 9:00 am - 10:30 am

DATE: 1st Wednesday of each month

In October 2018, we renewed our commitment to creating a vibrant ACT community by inviting providers on our growing wait list to join in our meetings. This meant we needed a bigger room and some additional structure to our meetings. 

We are currently working through Learning ACT (2nd ed.) together, with readings, didactics, experiential exercises and real play.


We closed to new members in February 2019.

Anyone interested in being placed on the waiting list should contact:


About Us


The ACT at Duke Community Consultation group meets monthly to discuss a variety of topics related to the practice of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. It is open to anyone who is interested in expanding their knowledge of the ACT model (although we have to wait list participants from time to time, due to demand) and includes mental health professionals from diverse backgrounds. We come together to discuss cases, strategies, conceptualizations, as well as personal struggles, and commitments.


Each of us comes to the group with our own history and experience, and it is this individual wisdom that we each share to benefit the collective.


As mental health professionals, we all agreed some time ago that we would devote our professional lives to sitting in rooms with other human beings who were suffering. We agreed with our training behind us to offer our knowledge, our perspective, and our experience to help these individuals live their lives fully.

We come together, simply, to share in this journey.
