There are hundreds of books that will try to help you ''overcome'' or ''put an end to'' depression. But what if you could use your depression to change your life for the better? Your symptoms may be signals that something in your life needs to change. Learning to understand and interpret these signals is much more important than ignoring or avoiding them - approaches that only make the situation worse. This workbook uses techniques from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) to offer a new treatment plan for depression that will help you live a productive life by accepting your feelings instead of fruitlessly trying to avoid them. The Mindfulness & Acceptance Workbook for Depression will show you, step-by-step, how to stop this cycle, feel more energized, and involve yourself in pleasurable and fulfilling activities that will help you work through, rather than avoid, aspects of your life that are depressing you. Use the techniques in this book to evaluate your own depression and create a personalized treatment plan. You'll enrich your total life experience by focusing your energy not on fighting depression, but on living the life you want.

¿Te sientes solo, aburrido, desdichado, inseguro o insatisfecho y, a pesar de todo, pones cara de felicidad, fingiendo que todo va bien? Si tu respuesta es afirmativa, tranquilo, ¡no eres el único! Los últimos estudios científicos sugieren que vivimos prisioneros en una trampa invisible: un círculo vicioso en el que cuanto más luchamos por alcanzar la felicidad, más sufrimos a largo plazo. Por fortuna, escapar de «la trampa de la felicidad» es posible gracias a una nueva e innovadora psicoterapia conocida como Terapia de Compromiso y Aceptación (ACT). A través de seis poderosos principios, la ACT permite lidiar con el dolor, vencer los temores y construir una vida rica, plena y llena de sentido.
