Welcome back to Mentally Flexible! My guests today are Matthew Boone LCSW, Jennifer Gregg PhD, and Lisa Coyne PhD, authors of the book, Stop Avoiding Stuff: 25 Microskills to Face Your Fears and Do It Anyway. This book draws on the model of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, delivering accessible skills to help people face their fears and build a more meaningful life.

In this episode we explore:

  • The origin story of their book, Stop Avoiding Stuff
  • The concept of “you do, you get” to better understand our behaviors 
  • They each share personal stories of how the content within the book has played a role in their lives
  • And we unpack some of the core skills that you can learn within Stop Avoiding Stuff
