Editorial Reviews

Review

“Don’t Let Your Emotions Run Your Life for Teens examines many areas that teenagers (and subsequently parents) struggle with. Sheri Van Dijk offers tangible tools to deal with emotional upheaval, volatile emotions and difficult relationships. The exercises that Van Dijk includes in each chapter will assist teens by offering them options for coping with their emotions. Having raised three teenagers, I strongly believe these skills should be taught in schools as part of the curriculum!”
—Kathy Christie, ADR, mental health case manager at York Support Services Network in Newmarket, ON, Canada



“Van Dijk has written a workbook that any teen struggling with emotions will find very helpful. Using clear and concise language, this workbook offers awareness-enhancing exercises and practical help for recognizing, sorting out, and changing the way painful emotions can be handled. I found this book useful and easy to read, and I will recommend it to my teenage patients.”
—Mark R. Katz, MD, FRCOP(C), staff psychiatrist at the Southlake Regional Health Centre and assistant professor at the University of Toronto in Canada



“I highly recommend this well-written, user-friendly workbook written especially for teens. It provides easy to use tools for harnessing unruly emotions and calming uncontrolled thinking. By following the suggestions in this workbook, teens will feel more capable of controlling their mood, have more harmonious relationships, gain confidence, and live happier lives.”
—Linda Jeffery, RN, cognitive behavior therapist in private practice in Newmarket, Ontario

Format: Paperback
This workbook has changed my life. I have wanted to get help with my anxiety and how I tend to view things, and that may be why it worked so well (I was willing to change--which is essential for receiving help or counseling), so I am not sure if you should just get this for someone who thinks they are able to cope (even when you believe they clearly are not coping well). My sister bought this for me (she asked if I would actually use it, to which I replied "yes!") and I was busy for about a week after getting it, but gee I wish I had found 15 minutes of time every day that week to work on it, because I was awake until almost 2 the first night I used it.

If you want to feel better about yourself and are willing to change, don't think twice; get this workbook.

I've been a teacher for 37 years and have only grown more and more disturbed by the refusal of schools to address the critical realities of the emotional and interpersonal issues kids face. These are the issues that shape their lives and their futures. I've searched for THE book that can address the emotional/psychosocial health of teenagers in a way they can grasp and internalize.

This is it.

Thank you, Sheri Van Dijk and New Harbinger Publications. You are changing lives and SAVING lives.

Dialectical Behavioral Training is a very impressive program designed by Marsha Linehan. Classes for it are usually for adults and are generally 2-3 days a week for 2 hours for 1 full year. It absolutely changed my life, as a person and a mother, and I very much look forward to a format that I can share with my 12 year old child. She has Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and I know that these things that I've learned and have become, simply, a part of me, will greatly help her as well. I'll re-review it once we've finished it, but know that DBT is for every one of every age.

This is the best DBT book I've come across for teens and young adults. The book is thorough and does an excellent job breaking down core DBT skills. A great resource for therapists.

This thoughtful book helps teens change their thinking to help control their emotions. The checklists at the beginning of the book help teens pinpoint erroneous thinking.
