Busting Free

The Award-Winning Self-Help book

Busting Free won the 2022 Best Independent Book Award for Women’s Well-Being

Did the social valuing of breasts lead you to augment, restore, or reconstruct yours with implants? If so, then you know the powerful thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that lead you onto the implant table, crowd your heart and mind when living with or removing breast implants, and persist after explant—even when you’re thrilled to be implant-free.

But you can liberate yourself from the quest for better breasts and heal its harder-to-see inner scars. Amanda Savage Brown, Ph.D., LCSW, lights the way. Inspired by her own explant journey and specialty practice in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, she created a landmark inner healing program for anyone whose life journey includes breast implants.

Now you can access her balanced blend of professional insight and personal experience in this first-of-its-kind self-help book and its digital library of guided audios, demo videos, and worksheets. If you like relatable books that offer science-based change, you will love how Busting Free helps you:

  • Discover the behind-the-scenes process that created your breast “rulebook” and how to stop struggling with its content.
  • Tame the part of your mind that tries fixing your feelings by “fixing” your appearance.
  • Find your way through this journey’s mental, emotional, and social concerns.
  • Transform self-acceptance from an elusive concept into tangible practice—for the rest of your life.

If you want to finally reclaim your body, mind, and heart from what society taught you to believe about breasts, start Busting Free today.

Busting Free Digital Library

Busting Free is more active and experiential than most self-help books. It’s not a “sit with your eyes closed” or journal-intensive self-help book. You’ll do some of that, but the real benefits come from bringing its content into your life. Though I provide written prompts throughout the book to guide you along the way, some material is better for you to experience (rather than read), and there are a few transformational exercises that simply cannot be read–they must be felt.

So I created the Busting Free Digital Library and filled it with one-of-a-kind guided audios, demo videos, and fillable templates to help you experience and interact with the material.
