Updated and expanded in its second edition, this empowering book presents the ground-breaking techniques of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), covering more topics and providing more practical tools than ever before. Following on from its million-copy bestselling first edition, The Happiness Trap will help anyone who is facing illness, coping with loss, working in a high-stress job, or suffering from anxiety or depression, to build authentic happiness from the inside out. This new edition features over 50% completely new material, including new sections on perfectionism, people-pleasing, procrastination, dealing with loss and loneliness, overcoming trauma, making difficult decisions and breaking bad habits. In a challenging world, the new material on self-compassion will be particularly appreciated as we all learn to be there for ourselves in a caring and supportive way.

The title reflects a key theme: that popular ideas about happiness are misleading, inaccurate, and often make us miserable. The book covers in detail how to use mindfulness skills, values, and effective action to enhance health, vitality, and life satisfaction. Based on a revolutionary new development in human psychology, this book will show you groundbreaking ways to: • handle painful feelings far more effectively • escape the grip of self-defeating habits • rise above your fears, doubts and insecurities • find more fulfilment in your work • build more satisfying relationships and, above all, • create a rich, full and meaningful life.

At last, a self-help book that really can change your life!
