Overview

Your Mind: An Owner's Manual for a Better Life: 10 Simple Truths That Will Set You Free by Christopher Cortman, Harold Shinitzky


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, people become anxious, depressed, and generally unhappy; if they learn the 10 truths, they are 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 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.
