Book: Stuff that Sucks (2015)

This is my 300th post!!!!

I’ve been attending an online course and came across this book by Ben Sedley:

Stuff that Sucks: A teen’s guide to accepting what you can’t change and committing to what you can

It’s a small, easy to read book, based on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I’d recommend this to any younger teenagers especially. Of course it isn’t and can’t replace therapy, but generally many parents and adolescents have found it helpful for general teens related struggles.

One criticism it receives is that there isn’t much of “practical application”, they said it tells you what stuff sucks, but didn’t tell you what you do about these stuff that sucks. I would disagree on that one, and would suggest those people to read again, because the answer/approach is in there… perhaps not obvious enough though!
