During their more than 80,000 hours facilitating psychotherapy, Drs. Cortman and Shinitzky realized that most people are unaware of 10 crucial psychological truths--truths imperative to maintaining mental health and well-being. As a result of this lack of awareness, they become anxious, depressed, and generally unhappy; if they learn the 10 truths, they are much more likely to lead productive, fulfilled lives.
Do you know that:
* Emotions are understandable and contain valuable information?
* Our behavior has a hidden purpose?
* We all have an internal saboteur whom we must identify and control?
* We can change how we act if we change how we think?
* Time heals nothing?
Your Mind: An Owner's Manual for a Better Life combines extensive psychological research with decades of clinical practice and delivers its wisdom in a practical, easy-to-digest narrative. Through examples and exercises, Drs. Cortman and Shinitzky present a step-by-step strategy to help you make use of the truths and become a happier, healthier you.
