Publisher's Summary

Are you still struggling with negative thoughts despite trying to consciously change your thoughts so that you can be more positive and less toxic?

Do you often feel anxious and can’t seem to find an effective solution and are tired of fighting against your mind and feeling helpless?

If you’ve answered yes, keep reading...

You are about to discover exactly how to put an end to your struggles by leveraging the power of acceptance and commitment therapy!

Imagine what you’d feel like when you are free from anxiety, when you are comfortable with things as they are, and when you accept your way into a life that fits perfectly with your values! Imagine how it would feel like to be your authentic self rather than reacting negatively or fearfully against things around you. That does require quite a level of psychological flexibility, doesn’t it?

Yes, it does, and that’s exactly what the acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is all about and what it can help you to achieve!

Yes, ACT builds in your acceptance, commitment, and mindfulness that collectively assist you in accepting all the realities of life and accept thoughts for what they are.

If you are particularly the kind that never manages to stop trying to avoid life’s problems only to end up with anxiety, the ACT therapy is exactly what you need.

You might have questions like:

  • How do you get started with ACT?
  • What does the therapy look like in practice?
  • Is it the same as CBT?
  • Is it something I can practice alone?
  • Is it safe?

If such questions sound familiar, then you are exactly where you need to be right now. This simple beginners’ book will help you understand what ACT is in detail and answer the rest of the questions to give you a vivid understanding of what to expect and how to get started with the therapy for long-term success.

More precisely, you’ll learn:

  • What ACT means and what it aims to help you achieve
  • How different ACT is from CBT
  • What mindfulness refers to, and why it matters in your journey to using ACT
  • Why ACT is better than the traditional CBT
  • The six core processes of ACT and how to make the most of them
  • How to develop willingness and acceptance to seeing progress in overcoming anxiety
  • How to treat anxiety with ACT
  • The important ACT exercises to expect in the therapy
  • And much more!

Are you ready to learn how to commit to working with your issues head-on and moving closer to your difficult feelings instead of risking anxiety by stuffing them away?

Are you ready to experience a new you who isn’t affected by anxiety at all in just five weeks? If you are, then one simple action is all you need to get started, even if you feel stuck right now!

Found it extremely useful for myself

This is an absolute must-listen for anyone who works with depression. It's accessible, easy-to-listen, with great clarity, goes through the ACT model in more depth than any previously-published ACT book.

This is a great book for everyone

This is a great book for therapists who treat people with anorexia and I would add that it can also be helpful for treating binge eating disorder.

The ideas are truly revolutionary

This book is it talks about classes of problems and classes of interventions, so you can put it all together to fit your client's presentation, rather than trying to get the client to fit your protocol.

Absolutely one of the best book I’ve listen

Absolutely one of the best book I’ve come across for ACT. It’s well book, easy to understand by both ACT clinicians and lay people . I love the extended portions of each chapter that allow you to really dive in deeper to each focus.

Provides excellent information regarding the ACT

My previous training in ACT felt more like an overview, and I was looking for something more in-depth. It provides excellent information regarding the ACT model, as well as its implementation.

I love this book

This book seems pretty helpful so far in recommending tools, practices, tips and exercises on how to check in with yourself and to make sure you're doing okay and how to keep it that way.

I think will be helpful to everyone

The book includes some workbook aspects to it, which I think will be helpful to everyone to have them draw upon their own examples and come up with some solutions in listening the book.
