Discover your own superpowers, and be the hero you were meant to be

Do you suffer from depression, anxiety, or trauma? Have you experienced sexism, marginalization, or even sexual assault? If so, each day can feel like a battle. But you do have the strength within you to rise above life's challenges. Using a unique blend of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and "superhero therapy," this one-of-a-kind guide will help you get started.

In Super-Women, you'll find tools to help you explore and process painful experiences, accept difficult thoughts and feelings, and use mindfulness and self-compassion to tap into your own unique superpowers. Alongside seven other heroic women, you'll learn how to re-write your "origin story" and find compassionate tips and strategies to help you define your own heroic purpose.

Joining you will be notable women from all around the world, who've submitted their stories and words of encouragement. These women include writers, such as Anne Wheaton, Felicia Day, and Jane Espenson; actors such as Chase Masterson and Ruth Connell; and comedians, activists, and other women who like you understand first-hand how difficult--yet empowering--it can be to be female in a patriarchal society.

So, if you're ready to rise from the ashes and join the leagues of super-women everywhere, read this book. You may discover powers you never even knew you had
