One size fits all

Within the self-help genre–and its more scholarly brethren, like positive psychology–even the best advice, backed by research in the cognitive sciences, really starts as “me-search”. It’s based on what worked for the authors, so, it generally has limitations, such as conformation biases, baked in. FARM takes a different approach: 1) it integrates and synthesizes diverse philosophical, scientific and wisdom traditions and 2) provides a broad framework that not only permits, but insists on, application to each individual’s context, capabilities, and values.
