Hi there and a very warm welcome to Season 5 Episode 56 of People Soup – it’s Ross McIntosh here.

P Soupers - it's the third part of our mini series - my new collaboration with Dr Richard MacKinnon from WorkLifePsych - where we delve into all things related to psychological flexibility and ACT. We're aiming to show you how relevant it is - not only to your work life, but your whole life. Listen on to part 3A of the mini series where we introduce and begin to explore the process of cognitive defusion. We talk about how our unhelpful thoughts can be grabby, sticky and loud, we consider how they impact on our behaviour and reflect on the liberating phrase - "A thought is just a thought".

People Soup is an award winning podcast where we share evidence based behavioural science, in a way that’s practical, accessible and fun. We're all about Unlocking Workplace Potential with expert perspectives from Contextual Behavioural Science.

Another first for Season 5 is that I'm adding a transcript, wherever possible. There is a caveat - this transcript is largely generated by Artificial Intelligence, I have corrected many errors but I won't have captured them all! You can also find the shownotes by clicking on notes, keep scrolling for all the useful links.
