Description : Demanding perfection in everything you do can create a life of stress, worry, and overload. With this essential self-help guide, you’ll learn to escape the perfectionism trap and cultivate unconditional self-acceptance in an imperfect world. Are you a perfectionist? Do you wear this title like a badge of honor, even though it creates needless stress in your life? Ironically, the stress you create by demanding perfection from yourself and others can actually make it harder to achieve your goals in the long run. It can also alienate you from friends, family, and coworkers. So, how can you escape the perfectionism trap and start living a life of self-compassion? In this informative and practical resource, author Elliot Cohen reveals the eleven types of perfectionism, and gives you the tools and skills you need to move past this distressing mind set before it leads to chronic stress, anxiety, anger, or even depression. Using strategies grounded in evidence-based rational emotive behavior therapy (REBT), you’ll discover how your perfectionism is actually a result of irrational beliefs, learn to challenge these beliefs, and replace negative thoughts with compassionate ones. Being a perfectionist can affect virtually every decision you make, and every action you take—leading to a life of perpetual stress. This book can help you put a stop to the absolutist thinking behind your perfectionism and take steps toward a calmer, more balanced way of being.

Description : Our eyes are involved in most of our experiences and in forming our memories. It seems logical that we can use our eyes to change hurtful memories. Emotional Transformation Therapy (ETT) was developed with this concept in mind. Emotions play an extraordinary role in our lives. Every event is labeled with a corresponding emotion in our brains. An experience can be characterized as pleasant or dangerous—or by any other identifier that influences our thoughts and actions or determines whether we want to remember a particular occurrence. Events do not change if the emotional labels are altered, but we think and react differently to different labels. People can go from feeling victimized to becoming proud survivors if the labels are changed. A crisis situation can become either a tragedy or a new beginning based on a person’s emotional evaluation. ETT does not change facts, but it can help transform shame, fear, loneliness, emptiness, and other often paralyzing feelings, opening up a person to the possibility of more realistic and empowering mind-sets. ETT offers quick, goal-oriented treatment for severe psychological problems like PTSD, abuse, and eating disorders and everyday situations such as stress in one’s professional life, anxiety that hinders achievement, and more. Learn more about this revolutionary new treatment method designed by a licensed clinical psychologist, and unlock the secret to fast, effective recovery.
