How You View Your Sexual Self

  In an earlier blog I talked about how you get caught in a sexual rut because of  psychological inflexibility. I described the six core processes that contribute to being psychologically inflexible and getting stuck; (1) Lack of clarity of values (2) Dominance of outmoded scripts and learning (3) Cognitive fusion (4) Attachment to the conceptualized self (5) Experiential avoidance and (6) Inaction, impulsivity, and rigidity .

How You Get Stuck in a Sexual Rut

How You Get Stuck in a Sexual Rut One of the main reasons for not being able to unleash the power of your sexual mind to keep your passion and desire alive is that it gets stuck on unhelpful sexual thoughts, feelings, personal scripts, and mental images. Think of your sex life as a documentary film. It is made up of all the individual sexual scenes that you have spliced together over the years with your current partner and past sexual partners if you have had any.

Building Psychological Flexibility Through Acceptance

  In a recent post I discussed the six components of psychological flexibility. Valued Living, Mindfulness, Acceptance,  Commitment,  Observing Self, and Disentanglement (Anstiss & Blonna, 2014). In this post I want to focus on Acceptance. Acceptance  has four components: accepting reality for what it is accepting what you can and cannot control accepting that trying to avoid, eliminate, or control painful internal factors actually makes them worse accepting that the best way to manage painful internal factors is to accept them, and co-exist with them as you shift your focus off of them...

Becoming More Psychologically-Flexible Through Commitment

In a recent post I discussed the six components of psychological flexibility: Valued Living, Mindfulness, Acceptance,  Commitment, Observing Self, and Disentanglement. In this post I want to focus on Commitment (Anstiss & Blonna, 2014). Commitment is the action part of Acceptance and Commitment (AC) Coaching. When clients commit to something, they pledge to follow through with their plans. Remember: Acceptance involves having clients become more mindful of what is going on in their internal (thoughts, feelings etc.) and external (behavior, physical environment) environments and...
