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.

Review quote

""In Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life for Teens," Joseph V. Ciarrochi, Louise Hayes, and Ann Bailey provide teenagers with access to the powerful principles of acceptance and commitment therapy. The lessons are broadly applicable to any number of struggles a teen might have. Teens can't help but recognize their own struggles in the stories told and dare to pursue their own hopes in the exercises offered. Perhaps most importantly, in the midst of a stage when many peoples' thoughts and feelings isolate them from the lives they care about, these authors communicate clearly that the readers are not alone and don't have to struggle. I believe this book will be an invaluable resource for any therapist, parent, family member, or friend who wants to help a teen they care about." --Emily K. Sandoz, PhD, assistant professor of psychology at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette
