A highly practical guide to take back control of thoughts so one can lead a fulfilling life full of love.
The author shares his own struggle with mental health and the relatively simple tools he used to change his thinking. He then goes on to give practical exercises and show how these can be used in a wide variety of situations from helping cancer patients to supporting communities ripped apart by war deal with a serious disease.
Practical, helpful, and astonishingly well documented with thorough scientific study. Written with deep consideration and a good dose of self-deprecating humour. Wonderful.
Having had 10 years of anxiety and many failed attempts (with professionals and self help) of CBT I read this and a weight lifted. Its truly reassuring, affirming and gives hope about recovering from mental health issues. Written by a doctor who tried to treat his own anxiety with the professional advice he was giving to clients, and did not get better, it lifts the lid on trends in psychology treatment and explains why these popularised programmes sometimes do not work. Rest assured he presents a new way of looking at issues, and they will likely solve other emotional problems as well as the one he was afflicted with. I am sure anyone with depression, BPD or PTSD would greatly benefit from this. It should be required reading from the age of 21.
This is an amazing book. I have read many psychology books from multiple schools of thought, and none of them really teach how to live after recovery. Most approaches focus on getting out of the core problem as fast as possible, but don't really teach how to learn to live healthily. This book is a kind, honest, detailed guide on how to do it. I think everyone should read it, as everyone could benefit from techniques, psychological and philosophical approach to living more fulfilled life explained in this book.
There are lots of books on ACT, and few that give you so much for so little. This 440 page whopper is at once a lowdown on the central message of ACT, a history of its development, a guide to the model, a personal memoir of how and why ACT has been helpful to the author, and a comprehensive self help book. Recommended for the public and professionals alike.
Dr Hayes has distilled a lifetime of research and experience into this book. The result is a resource which is easy to digest, but also challenging in all the right places. I highly recommended “A Liberated Mind” for anyone seeking to explore ACT for the first time, or for those who currently practice and would like to invest in their learning.
