"Acceptance Statements" have been modified.

During the October 2011 Basic Clinical Workshop in Antwerpen, Belgium we had the usual discussion about language and how well English translates into Dutch, Flemish, French, and Spanish.  This has been a particular issue regarding the phrase "I humbly love and accept myself..." that is used to begin all Acceptance Statements.
While in English the intent was workable, however "humbly" does not translate with the same meaningful intent into these other languages.  During our discussion a wonderful suggestion was offered: "Deep in my heart, I love and accept myself..." to replace "I humbly love and accept myself..."  We learned "Deep in my heart" translates well into all of the represented languages with the same intent. Thank you, Gerrit van der Neut!

Since that workshop, and the Advanced Applications workshops that followed, I have been using "Deep in my heart, I love and accept myself..." to begin all Acceptance Statements.  I have found in my clinical practice that the statement is well accepted and that it flows nicely with the HAT protocol during treatment.

While in Belgium in October 2011, I learned that HAT is being used successfully in English, Flemish, Dutch, and Spanish.


Dr. Diepold offers Workshops for licensed mental health professionals in the USA, Canada and Europe. Workshop training for using HAT is offered at the “Basic” and “Advanced” levels.  Individual and group case consultation meetings are also available for development of clinical expertise.
