Publisher's Summary

Beyond language, psychological flexibility.

Learn how to cope when negative feelings or even panic attacks set in and learn long-term strategies to not just cope with these unwelcome and intrusive conditions but also how to fight and beat them permanently.

What is acceptance and Commitment Therapy?

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is an action-oriented approach to psychotherapy that stems from traditional behavior therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. Clients learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with their inner emotions and, instead, accept that these deeper feelings are appropriate responses to certain situations that should not prevent them from moving forward in their lives. With this understanding, clients begin to accept their issues and hardships and commit to making necessary changes in their behavior, regardless of what is going on in their lives, and how they feel about it.

Acceptance and commitment therapy is a new, modern effective treatment approach for a range of mental and emotional health issues.

Acceptance and commitment therapy helps you identify and challenge unwanted, unhelpful thoughts.

Acceptance and commitment therapy teaches us that thinking negatively is a bad habit that, like any other habit, can be beaten.

Included in this audiobook:

  • ACT: Targeting language to increase psychological flexibility    
  • The permanent struggle to avoid negative emotions    
  • Painful psychological events are intrinsic to the human condition    
  • Experiential avoidance    
  • Avoid: An effective strategy    
  • Risk of loss of flexibility    
  • Trigger a take of awareness of the uselessness and risks of the struggle    
  • Help the patient to identify his avoidances and their ephemeral effectiveness    
  • Creative despair: a springboard for the patient

Excellent audio book! Well worth it.

I absolutely love CBT! I learned so from this audio book and I also grew a lot through listening it. I’ve felt so relaxed and at peace listening. I've been going to a psychiatrist who is licensed to practice CBT in the Philippines it's quite rare to find, and I am telling you.

A practical guide for everyday living for anyone and everyone can gain insight. A lot of windy conversation for a simple audio book on meditation. This was a gift, but that was the comment. Found to be very good.

I highly recommend it.

This is the most effective compendium of data on anxiety and depression I even have found. It is such a healer in this competitive world and so little self-worth. The audio-book will teach you how to come into healthy loving yourself which expands to others. Full of very helpful strategies to stop avoiding fearful situations. This book can help change our life.

its love it audio book

As a recent convert to ACT, I appreciate this manual. Unfortunately, it often is excessively verbose and preachy. It also needed to put more effort into practically explaining how to activate each process, instead of wasting the first hundred pages on a tangential language theory.

Love it audio book

ACT involves a new way of looking at the mind and at the process of change. I have read parts of this Audible over and over, and each time I go a little deeper into this new way of thinking. The Audible teaches you how to live with your symptoms of anxiety, depression and other problems and not be ruled by them.

If you are learning about ACT, this is the only Audible you absolutely need. It is written by the founders of the modality. It is clear, understandable, and it offers practical application information in addition to covering comprehensive theoretical rationale.
