Therapy Quest

An Interactive Journey Through Acceptance And Commitment Therapy

By Janina Scarlet
Illustrated by Vince Alvendia

  • Paperback
  • £9.99

An interactive new introduction to ACT techniques, that uses a path-based decision format, and examples from the fantasy genre to show readers how they can overcome anxiety, depression and trauma to become a hero in real life.

Did you ever want to be a hero? Have you ever dreamed of going on an epic quest to destroy monsters, defeat evil forces and fly on the back of a dragon?

This interactive new self-help book puts you, the reader, in a fantasy world where every decision you make and every path you take will influence the outcome of your journey.

When the seer Anka spirits you away to the world of Here, you find yourself proclaimed the Chosen One - the hero everyone is relying on to defeat the evil sorceress Mallena before she destroys everything. But you don't feel like a hero, do you?

If you choose to accept this quest, you will have an opportunity to learn the skills that you need and put together a crew of loyal friends and companions to help you with your journey. The skills are based on acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), which has been shown through research to help people overcome depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), chronic pain, addiction disorders and many other common problems.

Your journey will be full of danger, loss and strange creatures, but it will also be full of excitement, adventure and fun, and will let you form life-long bonds of friendship, which no curses can break. This book is your call to adventure, an invitation to be the hero in your own story.

Our life stories can be summarized in certain key pivotal moments. This charming book distills those moments into a small set of choices that science has shown reliably lead to life expansion or life contraction. Structured as an adventure created by the choices made, the reader gets a chance to acquire wisdom far beyond their years by focusing on what is most important: opening up, becoming aware, and moving toward your values. Give it to a young person you love: they may thank you someday for it. Highly recommended. — Steven C. Hayes, foundation professor of psychology, University of Nevada and co-developer of acceptance and commitment therapy

I cannot recommend this book enough! — Jenna Busch, Editor-in-chief, Legion of Leia

'Reading [Tell Me What You Want] may be the best thing you ever do for your sex life, your relationships and your self-acceptance' - Geoffrey Miller, author of The Mating Mind, Spent, and MateWhat do we really want when it comes to sex? How can we break the barriers that prevent us from communicating about our desires? Justin J. Lehmiller, a leading expert on human sexuality and author of the popular blog Sex and Psychology, has made it his career's ambition to answer these questions. Based on his monumental two-year study of sexual fantasies involving more than 4,000 people from all walks of life, Tell Me What You Want offers an unprecedented look into our fantasy worlds and what they reveal about us. It will help you to understand your own sexual desires and how to attain them within your relationships, but also to appreciate why your partner may have sexual proclivities that are so different from your own. Appreciating the incredible diversity of human sexual desire and why this diversity exists in the first place can help you to overcome distress, anxiety and shame about your own sexual fantasies; ultimately enhancing your sex life. Breaking down barriers to discussing sexual fantasies and allowing them to become a part your sexual reality is the pathway to maintaining more satisfying relationships.

Infidelity

Kenneth Paul Rosenberg
Authors:
Kenneth Paul Rosenberg

What the latest science tells us about fidelity, infidelity, memory, the brain's reward systems, love, and sexIn both genders and across age groups, infidelity is on the rise. People often cheat in a haze of delusion, believing that it will bring them real love, help them have better sex, lift their spirits, and boost their sagging self-esteem; however, very often, cheating wrecks relationships and erodes self-esteem. Hundreds of people have sought Dr. Rosenberg's help as a psychiatrist to help them stop cheating and repair the damage caused by their affairs. In Infidelity: Why Men and Women Cheat, Dr. Rosenberg explains what draws men and women to cheat and what they can do about it. He explains the three types of cheating: emotional, virtual, and physical; why they're so prevalent; and how to survive when either you or your partner are drawn to stray. Infidelity takes an objective and evidence-based approach to why men and women today cheat, drawing from the latest research in neuroscience and from Rosenberg's own clinical practice to reveal the mechanics of the sexual brain. And through concrete rules, Rosenberg guides couples on how to prevent cheating, stop it from progressing, and repair the damage caused by an affair. Infidelity provides key insights that show a couple how to find their true sexual and romantic potential and advocates honesty, trust, and integrity - the fundamentals of love.
