Synopsis

Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life for Teens A Guide to Living an Extraordinary Life by Joseph Ciarrochi

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.

Reviews

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 An extraordinary resource for teens and adolescents who are struggling with everything from the trials of being a teenager to more serious problems. The authors provide an engaging, compassionate, and understandable road map with practical suggestions and exercises that any teen will want to explore. It is an amazing gift to have such a useful book to recommend to teens and their families. --Jennifer Gregg, PhD, associate professor at San Jose State University and coauthor of The Diabetes Lifestyle Book It's hard being a human, and it's not easier being a teenager. Ciarrochi, Hayes, and Bailey clearly know what they're talking about from their own experiences and from working with youths who struggle. This is a book that should have been written long ago. I wish someone had given it to me when I was a teenager. --Rikard K. Wicksell, PhD, licensed clinical psychologist and a clinical researcher at Karolinska University Hospital and the Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm, Sweden 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 'This book is a fantastic resource, full of wisdom, compassion, and extremely practical tools for helping teenagers thrive in the face of life's challenges. It is not only essential reading for teenagers, but also for parents, teachers, and any therapists or counselors who work with this age group. --Russ Harris, author of The Happiness Trap and The Reality Slap Get Out Of Your Mind and Into Your Life for Teens is an extraordinary guide for teenagers pursuing extraordinary lives.
