Just now catching up on #ABCT happenings. I think Steve Hayes is spot on in his prediction that "future generations will look back and say 'what were you thinking?' and additional letters of apology will be written"...[1/n]
Specific examples offered here include treatment of those on ASD spectrum, individuals experiencing psychosis, weight stigma, and “the ease with which we’ve used bell-curve sorting of individuals to define things as abnormal” [2/n]
The point that “we are swimming in a cultural stream that makes it hard to see and know” is an important one. I think we need to practice humility (as a field) and be intentional + deliberate + active in giving consideration to what we may not be seeing + knowing now [3/n]
