A Very Different Approach, LOVE This WorkBook I have been to therapy in the past (for childhood abuse issues andanxiety) and read other material on anxiety, and it truly did give mesignificant relief from my symptoms, and helped my life overall. Butthe goal was to totally get rid of anxiety for me. So I was alwaysleft with the hang ups that came when I had anxiety, which everyhuman has, and is unavoidable. I would see the anxiety as proof thatsomething was wrong with me, I wasn’t coping well, etc. It fed intonegative thoughts about life and myself.

THIS BOOK IS NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL. It’s brief but thorough, with great ideas on every page. It takes you by the hand and explains in detail, but does it in a way that you don’t feel talked down to.Second, about half the people out there touting acceptance these days don’t have any idea what they’re talking about. There are a bunch of psychobabblers who go to one Steve Hayes workshop and think that since they read some Zen twenty years ago they know the whole ACT paradigm. John and Georg are really immersed in this work, and it shows up in the gentle way that they explain the key concepts. The subtle way they frame examples also shows their deep understanding of what this framework is all about. Because they understand it so well, the exercises flow from the central themes, so you can see how they build to…
