Many people who''ve experienced trauma tend to blame themselves. This tendency to self-blame often begins in childhood and is carried into adulthood, and can manifest in a number of emotional and behavioral problems such as anxiety, depression, addiction, and feelings of guilt and shame. You''ve probably tried to quiet your critical inner voice through avoidance and distraction, only to have the negative self-talk return time and time again to sabotage your self-esteem and interfere with your day-to-day life. Fortunately, you possess the power to forgive yourself and discover your inner strength.
With this workbook as your guide, you''ll learn proven-effective skills that integrate self-forgiveness with acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), compassion-focused therapy (CFT), functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP), and relational frame theory (RFT). You''ll develop the self-compassion and self-acceptance needed to overcome the sense of shame and guilt that''s keeping you from a meaningful, purposeful life. You''ll also gain a new perspective on your life''s story, empowering you to get in touch with your values and make an ongoing commitment to self-forgiveness-even in the face of new challenges.
Forgiving yourself does not mean the pain of the past will go away forever, but it can significantly reduce the burden you''ve placed on yourself. If you''re ready to replace self-blame with self-empowerment and self-reliance, this book will be your guide on a journey toward healing and joy.
