Product description

Hundreds of thousands of people have read Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life to identify the things that are most important to them and give focus and direction to their lives. Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life for Teens finally brings these essential skills to teen readers, presenting a comprehensive acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), positive psychology, and emotional intelligence plan for moving past depression, anxiety, unhealthy behaviors, and simple self-doubt. This engaging book follows the journey of the characters Jess and Sam as they learn to control their impulses and focus on becoming the captains of their own ship. Readers come to see their dreams clearly and take steps to make them happen, even though these actions may risk criticism from others and cause them to feel temporarily embarrassed or afraid. By learning that feelings do not need to be translated into actions, teens learn to see their lives in the long term and gain self-control and emotion regulation skills that will serve them well as they move into adulthood.

Review quote

"Get Out Of Your Mind and Into Your Life for Teens" is an extraordinary guide for teenagers pursuing extraordinary lives. Ciarrochi, Hayes, and Bailey offer practical exercises and introduce us to characters who use bold warrior skills to pursue more intentional and meaningful lives. In so doing, they lessen the stigma most teens feel when they struggle with common problems, such as rumors, loneliness, and harsh criticism from others. My hope for this book is that it will become a textbook for high school and college students all over the world. Patricia J. Robinson, PhD, coauthor of "The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Depression" and "Real Behavior Change in Primary Care""
