Get ready to take a different perspective on your problems and your life—and the way you live it.

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is a new, scientifically based psychotherapy that takes a fresh look at why we suffer and even what it means to be mentally healthy. What if pain were a normal, unavoidable part of the human condition, but avoiding or trying to control painful experience were the cause of suffering and long-term problems that can devastate your quality of life? The ACT process hinges on this distinction between pain and suffering. As you work through this book, youll learn to let go of your struggle against pain, assess your values, and then commit to acting in ways that further those values.

ACT is not about fighting your pain; its about developing a willingness to embrace every experience life has to offer. Its not about resisting your emotions; its about feeling them completely and yet not turning your choices over to them. ACT offers you a path out of suffering by helping you choose to live your life based on what matters to you most. If youre struggling with anxiety, depression, or problem anger, this book can help—clinical trials suggest that ACT is very effective for a whole range of psychological problems. But this is more than a self-help book for a specific complaint—it is a revolutionary approach to living a richer and more rewarding life.

  • Learn why the very nature of human language can cause suffering
  • Escape the trap of avoidance
  • Foster willingness to accept painful experience
  • Practice mindfulness skills to achieve presence in the moment
  • Discover the things you really value most
  • Commit to living a vital, meaningful life

This book has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.

Synopsis:

This book develops acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a revolutionary and exciting new direction in psychotherapy, into step-by-step exercises readers can use to get relief from emotional pain. Written by ACT's founding theorist, the book offers a self-help program proven to be effective for coping with a range of problems, from anxiety to depression, eating disorders to poor self-esteem.

Synopsis:

Everyone wants to be happy, but somewhere along the way, they fall into “traps” that prevent them from reaching their potential, their goals, and the lives they want. In this important new book, internationally-recognized mindfulness expert Ruth Baer explores four most common psychological traps that ultimately lead to unhappiness: rumination, avoidance, emotion-driven behavior, and self-criticism, and offers real solutions for overcoming them. Inside readers will learn to transform their lives using an innovative transdiagnostic approach to managing stress, anxiety, and unhappiness so that they can live a truly satisfying life.

Synopsis:

Written by psychologist Matthew McKay, charismatic Silicon Valley spiritual leader Sean O’Laoire, and bestselling author Ralph Metzner, Why? offers a unique blend of psychology and spirituality to help readers reframe life's challenges as opportunities. Inside, readers will learn to dismantle tired, old traditions that tell them they should avoid pain and seek pleasure, create their own cosmology that unites their beliefs with their life’s mission, recognize this individual mission, and carry out exercises to bring them into alignment with this mission via personal practices. Despite these heady topics, the book is written in an accessible, inspiring, and entertaining tone.

Synopsis:

Have you tried everything, but still cant manage to lose weight and keep it off? The Diet Trap offers proven-effective weight-loss methods based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you change the way you think about food and develop mindful eating habits, so you can ditch the fad diets once and for all, and live a healthier, happier lifestyle.

Synopsis:

The first edition of the award-winning The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety introduced countless readers to the concept of mindfulness, and has successfully helped many people manage worry, fear, and panic so they can live a better life. This fully revised and updated second edition of the best-selling and innovative workbook offers readers compelling new acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) exercises to help them finally conquer their anxiety.

Synopsis:

Stop avoiding anxiety and start showing up to your life! Now in its second edition, The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Anxiety offers new, step-by-step skills based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you get started today. This edition features new chapters on trauma, self-as-context, and painful pasts.

Do you try to control your worry, fear, and panic, only to fail and end up feeling frustrated and powerless? Unfortunately, you cannot simply “turn off” anxious thoughts and feelings like a light switch. But there are ways you can take back your life and stop avoiding the things that cause you anxiety. This book has one purpose: to help you live better, more fully, and more richly. Your life is calling on you to make that choice, and the skills in this workbook can help you make it happen.

This fully revised and updated second edition offers compelling new ACT exercises to help you finally conquer your anxiety. You’ll learn how your mind can trap you, keeping you stuck and struggling in anxiety and fear. You’ll also discover ways to nurture your capacity for acceptance, mindfulness, kindness, and compassion, and use these qualities to shift your focus away from anxiety and onto what you really want your life to be about. Finally, you’ll learn how to let go of the trauma and painful past experiences that can fuel your anxiety.

No matter what kind of anxiety problem you're struggling with, this workbook can guide you toward a more vibrant and purposeful life.

This book has been awarded The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies Self-Help Seal of Merit — an award bestowed on outstanding self-help books that are consistent with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) principles and that incorporate scientifically tested strategies for overcoming mental health difficulties. Used alone or in conjunction with therapy, our books offer powerful tools readers can use to jump-start changes in their lives.

Synopsis:

Have you tried every diet or weight loss plan under the sun, but still cant manage to lose weight and keep it off? You arent alone. Each year, Americans spend billions of dollars on weight-loss products, yet we continue to have the highest obesity rate in the world. After trying and failing countless times, you have to begin to wonder, “What am I doing wrong?”

The problem with most fad diets is that they only attack the symptom of the problem, not the cause. No matter how much you try to deny yourself the food you crave, you always end up reverting back to bad habits. You might even lose weight initially, but more often than not youll gain it back—with a couple extra pounds to boot! In order to make real change in your life, you need to change the way you think about food, weight, and whats most important to you.

The Diet Trap offers proven-effective methods based in acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to help you develop mindful eating habits, self-compassion, and a greater understanding of what it means to live a valued life. ACT is a values-based therapy that has been proven effective for the treatment of weight loss. Because ACT encourages you to accept and experience uncomfortable emotions—rather than succumb to emotional eating—it helps you to stay on your path to lose weight, while also helping you develop compassion toward yourself, no matter how much you weigh.

Written by two researchers in the field of ACT, this book offers evidence-based solutions to help you fundamentally change the way you think about food, so that you can successfully lose weight, get healthy, and live a happy, fulfilling life without costly and frustrating fad diets.

How much do I like this book? I have reread sections of it at least 5 times, especially the section on "willingness." I have written "brilliant" in the margin several times -- the only other book that I have done that to is "War and Peace." I depend on this book to remind me of some of the fundamental ideas and practices that help make my life work.
