Publisher's Summary

Are you looking for a new method for accepting yourself? Then keep reading...

It is normal for people to suffer. However, suffering is not just about physical or psychological pain. People also suffer from difficult self-assessments, uncomfortable feelings, and painful memories. Because we dread or worry about suffering, we do everything to avoid them. We want to minimize our suffering. Many of us give importance to feeling better. But a good life is a lot more than just the absence of suffering. We want to live a good life and we want to make the best of our short stay on this planet.  

Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) is focused on the problem of human suffering, but also beyond that. It is also about understanding human suffering as an important factor in realizing a good life. This new form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is focused on important questions such as “What is my real purpose in life?”  

Many of us have all the things that some people are happy to have. But still, many of us are still miserable.  

We still hear stories about billionaires on their prime committing suicide. There are celebrities who have already achieved wealth and fame but still sulk in the corner then drink alcohol or take drugs. It seems that our lives naturally come with suffering.  

Physical pain has distinct psychological (mind) and physiological (body) components that manifest response and stimulus. The biological aspect of pain refers to the signal that is transmitted to our brain so we are aware that something is wrong.  

The resolve to recover from chronic pain is distinct between the actual pain and suffering. It is also then focused on achieving comfort. While we cannot avoid pain, we can surely do something about our response to suffering, pretty much like how we can respond to anger.

Gorgeous Book!!

An effective and practical blending of therapeutic approaches. My clients respond to the idea that the past is associated to present behaviour.

Best Book!!

Accept our human-domestication as a process of self abuse following indoctrination and or oppressive abuse and commit to being yourself as you choose to be rather than an animal being ridden and forced to serve a cruel master as chattel.

Overall great book!

An easy to listen and extremely entertaining introduction to ACT. I would recommend this book to therapists wanting to introduce ACT into their practice, and learn more about the theory behind it.
