Steve Hayes on Mindfulness, Prejudice, and Compassion

I first saw this talk by Steve Hayes, the primary creator of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, when he presented it at a conference in Philadelphia. At the time I was greatly moved and I saw several others around me who also had tears in their eyes. I'm glad its been put online where others can see this moving and controversial presentation. In this presentation, he does an excellent job of showing how a scientific view of mindfulness can be applied to the issue of human objectification and dehumanization.
