“Not another self-help book with a cheesy title…!”

The market is flooded with guides for life improvement. Most leave a positive impression and many people are trusting their content. However, a lot of them are based on false scientific paradigms, not being helpful in the long run. On the other hand, academic books do provide an accurate understanding of the human mind, but they tend to be heavy tomes, and you would need to dedicate a significant amount of time, if you were to develop a prevention strategy.

Could this be the book you need?

It all started when I decided to put together a brief guide for my clients, whom I felt needed to know the basics before engaging in a psychological intervention. In the meantime, I received many requests for advice and it seemed as if most people simply needed a nudge in the right direction. That's when I started writing this book, with three goals in mind:

  • To provide the right information concerning the main psychological interventions
  • To promote mental awareness for developing a preventive mindset
  • To help everyone take the right actions and bring meaningful life changes

The book includes 11 chapters, structured into three parts.

Part 1: Stay informed

Scientific facts can make a difference and are always the right option for promoting mental health. It is risky to engage in a process of self-development on your own, not knowing whether the approach is actually helping you to achieve your goals. In the first part, I introduce the main psychological interventions alongside the schools of thought, allowing you to understand the value of an evidence-based approach for applying psychology to different contexts (self-development, interpersonal or organisational).

Part 2: Be aware

Learning is not an option but a requirement for survival. We can achieve an ideal lifestyle when realising that awareness is the key to self-control. The second part will help you become familiar with the causes and consequences of mental illness, as psychological vulnerabilities should be identified while trying to prevent mental distress.

Part 3: Take action

Action is the way forward. However, at times it’s difficult to trust yourself and to do what it takes at the right time. The last four chapters will help you build the resilience mindset, so that you may stand up for yourself and achieve a balanced way of living.
