Imagine being left by the person you love and bouncing back stronger than ever.
Written by best-selling authors Dr. Elaine and Joe Foster, I Wish I Knew This before My Divorce uses the latest advances in cognitive behavioral treatment to break the struggle between holding on and letting go. In this East-meets-West approach to finding serenity, the authors dissect the causes of your breakup, the myths that block your path to happiness and the steps you need to take to end your suffering.
World-renowned clinical psychologist, Elaine Foster, is an expert in the fields of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mood regulating medicines and the treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder. Through her work using the "third-wave" of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) she has designed a revolutionary strategy for achieving radical acceptance during one of the most devastating events in life.
The book uses proven research, easy therapeutic techniques and real-life stories to help the listener find balance in the turbulent waters of a breakup. Mindfulness experts like Jon Kabat Zin (No Matter Where You Go, There You Are), agree that these tested strategies will not only improve your health but also inspire you to thrive in the face of catastrophe.
Now, you can use the power of ACT to breakthrough society's do and don'ts and stop should-ing on yourself. During this journey you'll learn:
Your ex doesn't belong to you
Craving for contact with your partner can keep you stuck in a cycle of vulnerability and powerlessness
Your spouse is leaving the relationship, not you and what you can do about it
A new, blockbuster theory for avoiding the deadly rebound
No matter how much heat you're taking for this separation, a breakup is rarely one person's fault.
