This chapter opens with teaching therapists how to lead a brief mindfulness exercise at the start of therapy sessions to increase clients’ present-moment awareness. The chapter describes the NOTE acronym as a means to help clients remember the skills they have learned up to this point: to notice what is happening, observe thoughts and feelings for what they are, turn toward their values, and engage in what matters. If clients have sufficiently built up acceptance and defusion skills, therapist may begin work on self-as-context. The chapter concludes with explaining how to introduce self-as-context to clients and provide metaphors to illustrate this tricky concept.
