In this go-to guide, psychologist Scott Symington presents a practical, breakthrough approach called the two-screen method to help when painful thoughts feel overwhelming. Using this simplified mindfulness approach, you’ll learn to accept and redirect your thoughts and focus on your values. By using the two-screen method outlined in this book, as well as the three anchors—mindfulness skills, healthy distractions, and loving action—you’ll learn to relate to your thoughts and feelings in a whole new way. And when threats, fears, insecurities, and potentially destructive thoughts and feelings show up, you’ll have a game plan for dealing with these difficult emotions so you can get back to living your life.

Due to my past child sexual abuse, I was beginning to feel ashamed that people knew I have sex. I was in counseling during the time and I believe the book helped me more than the counseling did. I was no longer ashamed about having sex, knowing that God made it to be enjoyed and explored. I also learned that it is expected of us to fulfill and enjoy our sexual relationship with our spouse. No Longer Ashamed
