What if almost everything we believed about finding happiness turned out to be inaccurate, misleading, or false? And what if those very beliefs were making us miserable? A growing body of scientific research suggests that we are all caught in a vicious cycle whereby the more we strive for happiness, the more we suffer.

This book provides an escape from "the happiness trap", via a revolutionary new development in human psychology: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). ACT helps people to create a rich, full and meaningful life, whilst effectively handling the pain that inevitably comes with it. This book shows you how to apply ACT in your own life to increase self-awareness, develop emotional intelligence, and transform painful feelings so they have much less impact and influence over your life.
