Self-Acceptance Psychology™

A New Paradigm for Understanding Emotional Health

Why are normal human reactions — such as fear, shame, self-criticism and the need for love and belonging — labeled as “mental disorders”?

Could compassionate self-acceptance be the solution to commonplace self-doubt — and even help people find permanent solutions to anxiety, depression and other supposed “mental disorders”?

The time has come to consider a solution to replace the current disease model, which labels and stigmatizes normal emotions and behaviors as “mental disorders.”

What if there was a system for understanding human emotions and behaviors that…

… was more accurate than the current psychiatric diagnostic model of the DSM?
… could bring about a real understanding of the causes of human behavior?
… could improve the quality of your relationships with others?
… could improve the relationship you have with yourself?
… could lead to real, permanent change — bringing contentment and an improved sense of connection?

Self-Acceptance Psychology™ is a simple, but powerful new paradigm to describe and understand human behavior. It challenges the traditional ways of defining “mental disorders,” yet is based on well-accepted and well-researched psychological concepts. Self-Acceptance Psychology reframes emotional and behavioral problems as adaptive and self-protective responses to fear, trauma, shame, and lack of secure attachment. This conceptual framework has many benefits and can lead to long-term, permanent change.

Self-Acceptance Psychology:

  • explains human emotional, cognitive, and behavioral patterns as natural, predictable responses to real threats or perceived fears
  • is based on facts and scientific research, so is more accurate and reliable than the DSM
  • is a simple, transparent, and understandable conceptual framework accessible to clinicians and the public
  • behavioral explanations lead directly to case formulation and to effective methods of therapeutic intervention and self-help
  • provides hope for permanent change through research-proven strategies of mindful self-compassion leading to self-acceptance

There is Hope: A More Effective Model

Self-Acceptance Psychology explains how to improve relationships with others and with yourself, and as such has a positive impact on all aspects of a person’s life.
