3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By David O. Williams on September 2, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is a great little book! As a mental health professional, I was interested in this book particularly for clients. I found this book is wonderfully practical because it is (1) a short easy read, and (2)it gives easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions. It is not only easy to understand, but simple to use. I have applied similar principles personally and with many clients, and will be able to put the additional insights to good use.

I would have rated this book a 5 if it included more real life examples and applications, especially to a clinical setting. The author keeps it pretty light instead. Even so, the principles presented are an extremely valuable addition even to working with serious problems such as addictions. The author has done a really nice job of encapsulating simple but very powerful practices to help people change a wide variety of SDB's. This book is very very worth the read!

This book was easy to read, simple to apply, and user friendly. I'm a LIcensed Clinical Social Worker so the concepts are not new to me. However, they are broken down into such basic terms that I can explain them much more easily to my young children. The book contains examples and tools to apply the techniques. It's a short and concise manual which can be used by individuals for themselves, by parents with their children, or by clinicians with their clients- whether children, adolescents, or adults.

Eliminating Self-Defeating Behaviors In Children & The Child-At-Heart by Linda Dianne Suda is a great book! We all have some self-defeating behaviors (SDB'S) which prevent us from accomplishing our mission and purpose in life, and this book explains how to eliminate those behaviors in easy to understand language. I highly recommend this book to people of all ages!

This is a great book! As a LCSW, I was interested in this book for clients (and helping my kids with some of their behaviors). I found this book is very practical because it is short and easy to read, and it also provids easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions.

This method has worked with many self-defeating behaviors, including my former neighbor's 8 year-old son's bedwetting problem! Not only did he stop wetting his bed, but he stopped getting into fights at school and got along better with his family! All this happened in about 6 weeks, and the results continued on and on. He even started teaching all his friends the techniques so they could eliminate their own self-defeating behaviors, and I was told he told his teacher about the techniques. The boy's younger sister and mom employed the techniques successfully for their own "SDB's." This book would be great for school counselors to use or anyone of any age or profession! The options for self-improvement are endless with this book! It even helped a 10 year-old girl stop getting hurt all the time! It is short and to the point. The fluff that is in longer books has been eliminated. It is easy to read and easy to do the steps.
