「自我破壞行為」(self-sabotage)是一種強而有力的負面行為模式,是指做出對自己不利的行為導致失敗之後,陷入自責或責怪他人,大多數人都曾因這類行為受害而不自知。自我破壞情況輕微者可能乍看無害,例如許下新年新希望卻沒有貫徹實行,也可能造成無形或有形的傷害,例如以言語甚至行為傷害親密的人,如果放任情況惡化,可能對婚姻、家庭、友誼、事業和人生造成嚴重影響。

作者Alice Boyes博士為臨床心理師,在這本心靈保健指南中處理人生最容易出現自我破壞行為的四個主要面向:心智/思維、自尊心、親密關係,及工作/金錢。作者根據最新的臨床心理學及認知行為理論設計出一套實用心法,專門破解因恐懼、焦慮、罪惡感或不安全感所導致的自我破壞行為,特色如下:

・引導讀者自行檢視並辨認哪些作為是在自毀前程(例如:設定高到不合理的標準,一味討好他人,或比較前任和現任伴侶)
・每章以小測驗起頭,供讀者評量自我破壞行為在各面向的嚴重程度
・提供簡明有效的有害行為戒除方針,尋回健康心靈和快樂人生
無論讓你困擾的是鑽牛角尖、羨妒交加、冒牌者症候群、規避風險,或經常高估或低估事情,都能在這個心靈保健箱中找到解方,不再自厭自溺,尋回人生靜好。

書評

前作The Anxiety Toolkit書評

"An easy-to-follow...workbook on understanding and managing anxiety...Boyes’s tone is friendly but never saccharine, and endlessly practical. Her tips and exercises, drawn from cognitive behavioral therapies that she herself has administered, should make a valuable reference for anxiety sufferers, and an ideal companion to readers undergoing psychotherapy themselves." –Publishers Weekly

"Therapist Boyes' "toolkit" is filled with "nuts-and-bolts" remedies for combating anxiety-driven inertia. Boyes, who claims that she, too, has been "anxiety-prone," begins by explaining that anxiety itself isn't the problem. It can actually be beneficial by making us more cautious and methodical in our tasks. The problem lies in how we become trapped by our real or perceived fears and are unable to act. Boyes concentrates on five areas—hesitancy, rumination and worry, perfectionism, fear of feedback, and avoidance—where anxiety can lead to bottlenecks. She begins each chapter with a quiz, allowing readers to gauge their needs, and then offers "experiments" suggesting specific, safe breakthrough techniques such as visualizing positive alternative outcomes or remembering successes. The therapist takes care to suggest nonthreatening options and to remind readers that working with their tendencies, not against them, delivers greater results. Far from the pat "don't worry, be happy" approach, Boyes' practical, easy-to-follow methods will be reassuring and useful to a wide range of readers." –Booklist
