    This book is absolutely freaking AWESOME. I have read a lot of books on managing depression and anxiety and this is probably the best one I have come across so far. I feel a kind of hope that I have not felt in a while, the book is really very practical and has a tough love approach that I think many people need. Really useful, insightful exercises. I have been taking this book in with me to counselling sessions and it really helps me get the most put of each therapy session. It's like therapy o This book is absolutely freaking AWESOME.

I have been taking this book in with me to counselling sessions and it really helps me get the most put of each therapy session. It's like therapy on steroids! No it is not a quick fix, but it really does get to the root of problems and helps the reader to find practical solutions that are manageable. Maybe it is because I am a doer and a pretty pragmatic person, but the earthy approach of this book was perfect for me. I recommend, highly.

    This workbook is an excellent resource for patients and practitioners. It offers a variety of audio visualizations and mindfulness exercises. While the book is primary written for moving through depression, I found many of the chapters as a useful tool to help patients create a more positive life. Overall, this workbook is well written and can offer hope and healing to those struggling with depression. I received this book through a Goodreads giveway for my honest opinion.

    Strosahl conceptualizes depression as not something you have, but something you do. It sounds a bit similar to Choice Theory positing mental disorders are chosen. It may sound unbelievable and put you on the defensive, but the ACT approach tries to empower the person by focusing on their ability to make changes. Of course we can't change what we can't control, we have to accept it to reduce our suffering and change what is in our control. I like the acronym: Accept Choose Take action I enjoyed how Strosahl conceptualizes depression as not something you have, but something you do.

Of course we can't change what we can't control, we have to accept it to reduce our suffering and change what is in our control. I like the acronym: Accept Choose Take action I enjoyed how the book integrates mindfulness, self-compassion, positive psychology, and neuroscience perspectives, showing how ACT practices such as mindfulness can alter our brains for the better. As with life, working through depression or any other struggle is an ongoing and unique process one approach can't guarantee to solve. However, ACT provides the tools to develop insight, focus, self-compassion, and direction to help one live a value-driven life of intention. Overall, this was a pretty helpful resource to learn about ACT in general as well as its applications to depression.
