Publisher's Summary

Learn how to unleash the full power of acceptance and commitment therapy to fight stress, anxiety, worry and other emotions, become happier and ultimately achieve greater satisfaction and fulfillment in life!

Humans have an insatiable appetite for more. And considering the massive rise of consumerism in today’s world, things only move from bad to worse as we are constantly told how we are not good enough, rich enough, hardworking enough, popular enough, and so much more.

This can drain even the most emotionally intelligent of us, as we are constantly having to face stress, anxiety, worry, fear, negative thoughts, and many other emotions. For many people, antidepressants, alcohol, and other related drugs are our go-to solution to our problems.

But do you know that you really don’t have to rely on medication, alcohol, and those strange substances you may be relying on to deal with stress, anxiety, anger, worry, frustration, fatigue, and more?

Yes, there is another way and that is using acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), a form of cognitive behavioral therapy, which has been proven to be just as effective as mainstream medication, without exposing you to the possible side effects of medication.

With ACT, you learn to accept life as it unfolds calmly and without letting your emotions take over your life to a point of influencing your responses. Imagine how much calmer your life would be if you could accept what life throws at you without acting out based on the emotions. Your personal and professional relationships would thrive, don’t you think?

Indeed, things would be different.

  • But what exactly does ACT entail?
  • What’s the theory behind ACT?
  • What are its principles or guidelines?
  • How can you incorporate it into your life?
  • What’s the science behind acceptance and commitment therapy?
  • How do you prepare yourself for an ACT session?
  • How is ACT different from anything you’ve ever tried?

If you have these and many other related questions, this audiobook is for you so keep reading.

The audiobook will teach you the ins and outs of ACT to help you develop your ability deal with the lows and highs of life with superhuman level of controlling your emotions.

More precisely, the audiobook will teach you:

  • The basics of acceptance and commitment therapy, how it works, scientific studies that back its effectiveness and more
  • How ACT differs from other mindfulness based approaches
  • The foundations of acceptance and commitment therapy
  • The different techniques of acceptance and commitment therapy
  • The six core processes of ACT
  • How to make the most use of the ACT model of psychological suffering
  • How to use acceptance and commitment therapy in the treatment of chronic pain
  • How the ACT approach to chronic pain differs from traditional CBT
  • How to apply ACT in a group setting to fight stress, anxiety, depression, and more
  • Where mindfulness comes in ACT, including the steps to take
  • And much more!

You don’t need to have any prior knowledge about ACT. With the teachings in this audiobook, you should be able to start applying everything you learn to get started and be able to talk about it with confidence.

High ratings are misleading.

This book seems to be a poor synopsis of the field read by an AI. Bizarre mispronunciations and ellipses. Don't be misled by the false high ratings/reviews. Clearly farmed.

Dry and boring

The only people likely to get anything from this book are academics and professional psychotherapists. If you are looking for an audio book where everything is phrased as dry third person psycho jargon with tons of bibliographic and research references read out loud (year and head researcher names) for your enjoyment, this is your book.
If you are looking for a way to personally benefit from ACT, look elsewhere.

Hard to listen to

The narrator sounds like a robot. Also, there are so many references it is very hard to listen to. All the references are from Russ Harris and Steph Hayes, so I'm not sure the point of this book, when you can just pick up one of theirs.

Amazing audio book that changed my life

.This is a great audio book on mindfulness. My therapist recommended it because I was dealing with some depression and it really helped. I think it would be great for anyone who wanted to practice mindfulness even if you don't have depression

way too many glaring reviews

Amazing! that so many reviews call this dry research paper style book "amazing!"

There are so many bibliographic references narrated repeatedly, it probably makes several minutes of the short <5 hr presentation. It's distracting. I wish for a refund. The 5 star reviews are lies.

Constant Citation Interruptions

Constant citation interruptions were too distracting to grasp the material. Audiobooks shouldn't be narrated like this. I will delete this and try a different one.

Great audio Book for depression

One of the most important audio books I've ever listen, if not the most important. Couldn't recommend it more, and it has massive value for anyone, not just those suffering with depression.

An excellent audiobook i ever listen

The inclusion of instructions with the caveat to record them using, a phone or other device so the person. did have to "hold a audio book" as they practiced.

This is exactly what I am looking for!audio

I was expecting it to be a mostly theoretical, boring audio book, but I got totally proven wrong. It was getting more interesting with every chapter listened. There are so many actual stories, that make a great audio book. One of the audio books, that can help you improve a lot on an personal level and rethink your understanding of the things you haven't explored.

Tediously Academic.

Not an introduction for anyone other than academics. The constant references at the end of each paragraph becomes tedious in the extreme, was that really necessary? I am left (yet again) hearing an unashamed plagiarism of Buddhist psychology re-packaged and re-presented. It's been there for 2,500 years already! I'm not beating a rant but come on, anyone new to ACT but not Buddhism will be left looking for something new in this and all other Mc'Mindfulness offerings. Sorry, but there it is.

Below average narration on a well written book

Content is great. Research chapter is a little dry I. Audiobook form but otherwise a great introduction to ACT with depth.

What is terrible is the narration. It’s broken with miss pronunciations, broken sentences, tripping on words etc. Some of these are cringeworthy. Is distracting from an overall good book.
