Best self-help book I've ever had
on November 11, 2012
This book has helped me in so many ways, I can't thank the authors enough for writing it. It has changed my life and kept me from seriously harmful behaviors. My psychiatrist has also been highly impressed with this book. The text is very candid, for which I've been very grateful. They don't sugar coat and dance around issues and wording. They come right out and say what is needed. While working through this workbook, I have been able to write a short synopsis which I keep in my purse. This way, when faced with difficult situations and people I can excuse myself and quickly review my distress tolerance skills, my distration plan, my self-soothing strategies, my safe-place visualizations and more ways that I can cope instead of harming myself or blowing a circuit. This book has helped to reduce the intense emotional waves I experience and has helped me to keep my balance.
If I can help anyone who has self-harm behaviors - or even anger issues, depression, anxiety issues - by writing this review, please buy this book and put the ideas into practice. It could save your life. It has saved me from a lot of pain.
