In brief: ACT Therapy
Acceptance and commitment therapy is the model he uses and is helpful for anyone who has emotions! i find this model very helpful and emphasizes the importance of action toward values which give ones life meaning.
There are a lot of books out there on "act" therapy that use different language but the principals are all the same. Contextualpsychology.Org has more info!

In brief: Defuse
His books are excellent in regards to acceptance and as well changing your stance towards your attitude and thoughts.
Freeing your self up from the entanglement of unfortunately chosen and reified thoughts and metaphors can benefit anyone. The trap can be believing that happiness should be readily and consistently obtainable. Many do not know how to or are deeply disappointed at transience.
