"Whoever said being a grownup was easy? If you're up to the challenge, Mastering Adulthood offers smart and entertaining strategies for dealing with difficult emotions like anxiety, sadness, and anger, or even just a lack of motivation and uncertainty. More than just "adulting"--This book will give you the real emotional skills you need to thrive! Whether you're graduating from college, starting a career, trying to gain financial independence, or creating meaningful relationships--entering into the world of grownups can be more than a little overwhelming. And while there are plenty of fun books out there for young adults offering advice on how to fix a leaky faucet or find the right apartment, none really delve into the deeply emotional aspects of growing up. In Mastering Adulthood, psychologist Lara Fielding offers evidence-based skills to help you cope with the feelings of anxiety, depression, anger, and stress that may be getting in the way of living an independent, fulfilling adult life. Drawing on case examples from young adults she's worked with in her private practice, Fielding provides empowering strategies and skills for managing difficult emotions using mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). When you experience big life changes that cause you stress, you need emotional flexibility to reach your goals and be your best self. Using the skills in this book, you'll learn to take charge of your emotional habits, stop feeling stuck, and discover what really matters to you"-- Provided by publisher.
