    I think this stuff (and the next interview you have with Jeff) is utterly fascinating. I read Jeff’s book too (which is great’ and really innovative); there is also an excellent article by David Denborough in the Dulwich mag (an edition dedicated purely to ‘neuro’ NT) which takes Jeff and others to task re some aspect of the ‘neuro-NT’ pairing. I find the entire conversation to be extremely valuable insofar as it opens up and brings attention to how NT accommodates (or ‘could better’ accommodate) emotion/affect, the body/embodiment, and the whole tricky area of the ‘non conscious’.

    I’ve spent the last year on a personal project of combining aspect of ACT with NT. ACT is values directed like NT, and like the work of Jeff Zimmerman and co, it is very big on mindfulness, the emodiment of affect and so forth. (there are however aspects of ACT that are too ‘therapist as expert’ driven for my liking). And I have to say, my practice is all the better for it.

    This video interview (and the next one) are from a while back I realise. I would have loved it (as Stephen suggested in the first vid) if this had turned into a series. Maybe another some time in the future?
