Product description

From the Back Cover

A guide to ACT: the revolutionary mindfulness-based program for reducing stress, overcoming fear, and finding fulfilment. 

Popular ideas about happiness are misleading, inaccurate, and are directly contributing to our current epidemic of stress, anxiety and depression. And, unfortunately, popular psychological approaches are making it even worse!
In this controversial but empowering self-help book, Dr Russ Harris reveals how millions of people are unwittingly caught in 'The Happiness Trap'! He then provides an effective means to escape, through a revolutionary new approach which is shaking the very foundations of western psychology.

This book is for everyone, from CEOs to sales staff, from astronauts to housewives. Whether you're lacking confidence, facing illness, coping with loss, working in a high-stress job, suffering from anxiety or depression, or preparing for the performance of your life - within these pages you will learn scientifically proven techniques to:

  •  reduce stress and worry
  • rise above fear, doubt and insecurity
  • handle painful thoughts and feelings far more effectively
  • break self-defeating habits
  • improve performance and find fulfilment in your work
  • build more satisfying relationships and, above all,
  • create a rich, full and meaningful life.

'Dr Harris shines a powerful beacon forward into the night. enjoy the journey. You are in excellent hands.' Steven Hayes - bestselling author of Get Out of Your Mind And Into Your Life
