Example text

If you know one side, you know the other. ” The evaluating and judging processes of the mind, when held as something to be believed, can create painful and difficult struggles that impact quality and meaning in life. Being mindful of this process, on the other hand, can allow us to surf this wave, seeing it for what it is—an experience called thinking.

If we can find a way forward, carrying these facts, we can reach another level of peace and power that the illusion of control can never produce. We live inside assumptions of safety, coherence, control, progress, and fairness. We build stories about the way life is supposed to be and who we are. We then live inside these stories, fearfully and uselessly avoiding the massive amount of data that constantly questions them. Unexpected and horrific pain is for someone else, not us. Accidents are somehow the fault of those experiencing them.

Life is not orderly. This is the sense in which I mean that there is a special relationship between ACT and the field of trauma. ACT asks whether it is possible to let go of conscious, deliberate, purposeful control when that no longer works. Instead it walks through the process needed to come into the present and still to care, even when we have abandoned the security blanket of feel-goodism and the illusion of omnipotence. This book, by master ACT therapists and trainers, carefully and systematically prepares clinicians to explore this territory.
