Matrix Workshop at NJASP Spring 2017 Conference

Posted by  / 


I will be giving a full day workshop May 5 at the New Jersey School Psychologists Spring Conference in East Windsor, NJ.

The workshop is titled  “Developing Healthy Classrooms: The ACT Matrix for Counseling and Intervention”.

The ACT Matrix will be presented as an engaging, research based tool designed to enhance psychological flexibility that quickly “loosens up” stuck or struggling learners for collaborative, creative problem solving, both individually and in groups. The matrix point of view leads learners toward self-monitoring and self-regulation, leaving more time for learning and discovery. It quickly engages all learners in a process of moving toward what is important for whatever learning situation they find themselves in.

Non NJASP members and students are welcome!

The Matrix is Going To Pittsburgh PA !

Posted by  / 


I am happy to announce the Matrix will be on the road to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania in April 28.

Thanks to the hospitality of the PLEA ACT Agency and Chatham University, I have been invited to present the ACT Matrix point-of-view for interested educators and mental health professionals . We will spend the morning getting participants up and riding the matrix bike.  The afternoon  will feature PLEA Director Beth Fulton and Clinical Director Aaron Libman presenting on matrix work with families and organizations. A panel discussion will wrap things up. This should be a great training and learning opportunity to those who can make it. I am told it is a lovely venue as well!

If you or anyone you know is interested the conference info and registration can be downloaded from the link below.

Where is your compass pointing?

Posted by  / 


 

 

A compass is a direction finding instrument used to navigate your way. It doesn’t tell you where to go as much as help you orient yourself relative to where you are and where you want to be.  A magnetic compass points to “true north” and is the one most of us either know about or have used at one time or another. It can be a handy tool to have available when you are lost or want to know if you are on track or not in terms of where you are heading. The matrix acts as in inner compass once you learn to use it.
