Product Details

Praise

“In all my years studying personal growth, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is one of the most useful tools I’ve ever come across, and in this book, Dr. Hayes describes it with more depth and clarity than ever before.”–Mark Manson, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

“Steven Hayes possesses an extraordinary trifecta of skills: A brilliant theoretical and research psychologist, he’s also a compassionate clinician and a wonderfully engaging writer. A Liberated Mind is packed with jewels of insight and information that could change the way we deal with suffering as individuals and as a society. A compelling, revelatory read.”–Martha Beck Ph.D, author of Finding Your Own North Star

“Written for a very broad audience, Dr. Hayes is able to clearly translate the science and clinical complexity of this treatment into concrete guiding principles for people’s lives. These principles not only apply to psychological suffering, but also to physical illnesses, relationships, corporations, societies, and cultures. The book is honest, compassionate, and profoundly insightful. It will transform your life by liberating your mind.”–Stefan G. Hofmann, Ph.D. Professor of Psychology at Boston University

“The key to evolving consciousness is cultivating a flexible mind—open, present, empowered and aligned with deep values—and Steven Hayes does a brilliant job showing us how.   This book is organized around developing six psychological skills that clinical research shows, beyond all other factors, promote flexibility and translate into a happier and healthier life.  As you read this illuminating book, you’ll see how these skills are learnable, that you can start right now, and how when woven together, they offer a path to inner freedom.”–Tara Brach, Ph.D, author of Radical Acceptance and True Refuge

“In our crisis-ridden society psychological flexibility is more needed than ever. Transcending shallow and ineffective behavioral approaches, Dr. Steven Hayes here presents a methodology, a skill-set, for emotional liberation that enables us to pivot from self-limitation to self-awareness and self-affirmative action.”–Gabor Maté MD, author, When The Body Says No: Exploring The Stress-Disease Connection

“We can spend our lives avoiding the thoughts and feelings that cause us pain.  But Steve Hayes has become a leader in his field by understanding that things that cause us pain are things about which we care.  By learning to use psychological flexibility we can turn toward the difficult places to live with richness and meaning.  Compassionate, helpful, and authoritative, A Liberated Mind shows us a powerful way to a fulfilling life.”–Susan David, PhD, author of Emotional Agility

“A Liberated Mind
provides an outstanding introduction to a psychological approach that has changed many lives by turning us toward focusing on our values.  The ideas and advice presented here help us truly understand what matters so that we can live with greater freedom, courage, and joy.”–Kelly McGonigal, author of The Willpower Instinct and The Upside of Stress

Having dealt with his own problems, such as panic attacks, Hayes deftly explains how to pivot by creating habits, accepting vulnerability and changing perspective.”–Success Magazine

“His latest book functions as an ACT primer, from the therapy’s development (it sprouted from the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy tradition) to a variety of tools and practices that the reader can integrate immediately.”–Spirituality & Health
