This week we're exploring the Acceptance and Commitment Therapy process of Creative Hopelessness to see if we can get ourselves to a place where we are open to trying something new and different when dealing with our physical and emotional pain. If nothing you're trying is working, and you feel hopeless about your situation, then this is definitely an episode for you to check out.
In this episode we talk about:
- what creative hopelessness is
- how to figure out if your emotional control strategies are helping you
- what to do with the emotional control strategies that aren't working
TW: mentions of substance use and self-harm
