Check in:  (8:15-8:45)


Welcome: 8:45


Steven Hayes:  (9:00-10:30 pm)  Founder of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)

Dr. Hayes will open AHP's Phoenix Rising Conference with an open challenge to Humanistic Psychology to rejoin the scientific dialogue and knowledge-building around the very principles that Humanistic Psychology first espoused, such as therapist presence, therapeutic alliance, and the necessary conditions for change. Dr. Hayes will provide a brief overview of ACT and its theoretical underpinning (Relational Frame Theory, or RFT); provide some experiential exercises; present some research findings that ironically show how ACT/RFT research underscores and furthers some foundational principles of humanistic psychology; and elucidate the challenge that lies before Humanistic Psychology as a discipline.


  1. Attendees will identify the basic framework of ACT's psychological flexibility model;
  2. Attendees will facilitate experiences that nurture key components of psychological flexibility;
  3. Attendees will identify key ACT/RFT research that explores areas that were historically the realm of humanistic psychology; and
  4. Attendees will explain (and possibly embrace) the challenge that lies before Humanistic Psychology as a discipline.
 
Break (10:30-10:45) 


John Slaughter:  (10:45-12:15 pm)  Former President of Occidental College, Professor in the Rossier School of Education at USC will discuss the use of Humanistic Approaches to Leadership in Education. Leaders in higher education have many challenges in this environment of economic uncertainty, globalization and tumultuous demographic changes.  The principles of Humanistic Psychology can be of importance to those leaders in dealing with these critical issues.  A chronic concern is that America’s systems of higher education have made significant progress over the past several decades in enrolling and graduating underrepresented minority students but very little has been achieved in increasing the number of African Americans, Latinos and American Indians on the faculties of colleges and universities, especially America’s flagship and research universities.  While many institutions profess to be concerned about their ability to attract and retain underrepresented minority faculty members, it appears that few make a conscientious effort to do so.  This disparity between what is said and what is done has become and remains a blight on the performance of American higher education that must be removed if we are to meet the demands of this and future generations.  Courageous leaders who believe in the importance of inclusive and pluralistic communities that foster creativity and shared benefits will be needed to develop and sustain such communities.  These communities can serve as an example for the nation as it copes with momentous cultural and social change.

  1. Attendees will identify 
    1. Attendees will identify the requirements for effective leadership of education communities.
    2. Attendees will identify roles that diversity and equity play in creative educational environments.
    3. Attendees will identify how the principles of Humanistic Psychology be employed in educational settings.

Lunch (12:15-1:00)


Mary Helen Immordino-Yang:  (1:00-2:30 am)  USC Assistant Professor, and NSF Career Award Winner, and “Rising Star” award recipient from the Association for Psychological Science.  From moments after birth, people develop within social relationships—we come to the world biologically ready to engage with other people, and the emotions we feel in social contexts shape how we feel about ourselves and how we experience our own lives. In this talk, Mary Helen Immordino-Yang will discuss the neurobiology of social emotions like compassion, admiration and gratitude, including their deep visceral roots in the feeling and regulation of the body and consciousness, and their propensity to heighten one’s own subjective sense of self awareness. By examining neuroimaging data from young adults alongside creative and scientific works by children, she will argue that children’s early thinking is grounded in the feeling of emotions that foster social connectedness and self awareness, and is driven by an inherent desire to make culturally appropriate meaning of one’s experiences in the world.

 

  1. Attendees will identify parts of the brain involved in empathy and meaning making.
  2. Attendees will cultivate understanding of the mind-body connection in empathy and meaning making.
  3. Attendees will identify possible applications of this research in to their practice.

 

Break (2:30-2:45)


Kristin Neff:  (2:45-4:15 pm)  Author of Self-Compassion Scale, Associate Professor of the University of Texas, at Austin. In the decade since Dr. Neff first operationally defined and measured self-compassion for research purposes, over 200 journal articles and dissertations have examined the construct. Today, Dr. Neff will introduce the construct of self-compassion and explain its importance for clinicians, clients, and others, with a particular focus upon care-givers. She will include an experiential component to demonstrate how to access and nurture the three components of self-compassion (mindfulness, self-kindness, and common humanity).

 

  1. Attendees will describe self-compassion and its three factors (self-kindness/self-judgment, mindfulness/over-identification, and common humanity/isolation).
  2. Attendees will explain the research-supported importance of self-compassion for self-worth and for psychotherapy
  3. Attendees will demonstrate some ways of nurturing self-compassion in themselves and others.

  • 1:00-2:30 pm  Developing Your Own Integrated Approaches to Counseling 
The emphasis of this address is on bringing contemporary theories to life by formulating an integrative counseling style that addresses the thinking, feeling, and behaving aspects of human functioning.  This integrative perspective draws from the following theoretical orientations: psychoanalytic, Adlerian, existential, person-centered, Gestalt, behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, rational emotive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy, reality therapy, solution-focused brief therapy, narrative therapy, and feminist therapy. Both the advantages and disadvantages of an integrative approach to counseling are described.  Emphasis is given to developing one’s own integrative approach to counseling practice.

  1. Attendees will identify elements of oppression that can lead individuals and communities to adapt their approach to the dominant culture in ways that may cause harm to themselves and others.
  2. Attendees will identify strategies for reaching out and connecting with clients who are different from themselves.
