• first guidebook which connects compulsion with mindfulness
• current therapy topics: mindfulness, values and metaphors
Compulsive disorders interfere with life in an extreme way. The symptoms are very different, ranging from an excessive obsession with cleaning to a compulsive need for control. In many cases, the people affected are well aware of their problems, but simply 'can't help themselves'. The compulsion cannot be tamed and feels invincible, like a fire-breathing dragon.
This guide shows, for the first time, how to overcome compulsions by means of mindfulness. Anne Külz's new concept helps those affected to achieve a more benevolent and prejudice-free attitude towards themselves. Guided exercises in mindfulness and values identify the thinking traps and provide help in confronting the 'compulsion' of the inner dragon.
