Example text

But once our minds have made connections between things, they do not unlearn them. Take, for example, an adolescent with a fear of roller coasters. Just hearing about them would evoke feelings of nausea and an urge to run away. At some point later in time, this adolescent found himself standing in front of a roller coaster while on a date and decided to impress his date by going on the ride. If his behavior was reinforced, by a kiss perhaps, the roller coaster might begin to evoke feelings of excitement and pleasure, as did the kiss.

Types of Relations Between Stimuli RFT describes several types of stimulus relations: coordination (“same as,” “similar,” and “like”), temporal (“before” and “after”), causal (“if/then,” “because of”), comparison and evaluation (“better than,” “bigger than,” “faster than,” and “prettier than”), deictic (“I/you,” “now/then,” and “here/there”), opposite (“love and hate”), hierarchical (“a part of/includes”), and spatial (“near/far”) relations (Hayes, 2005).

Mindfulness is the practice of bringing attention on purpose to the here and now, without judgment about how things were or are going to be or how they are now. ” This means learning to stand “outside” oneself and observe “me-­ here-­now” with compassion for one’s self. This ability to stand back and see the self from “outside” is what makes defusion and acceptance possible. Self-­as-­context is in contrast to “self-­as-­content,” or the conceptualized self (“story”), which is the network of descriptions and evaluations we each hold about ourselves that develops over time as we frame behaviors.
