ACBS Updates and Listserv Nuggets
Do you use apps to log values-based actions or support clients with using mindfulness apps on their phones? The ACTing with Technology SIG recently compiled a list of relevant apps and online interventions. Find the list here and the discussion here. Please add ones that we may be missing to further the effort and share resources.
If web-based interventions are of interest, the April 2019 JCBS featured an article on promoting valued-living to college students which can be accessed here.

Check out SoberFamilies.com, if you haven’t recently! This is a great resource for family members who want options for responding to their loved ones based in science and kindness, as well as for folks in recovery who would like to offer guidance to their family and friends on how to effectively support them.
