This review is from: 10 Steps to Take Charge of Your Emotional Life: Overcoming Anxiety, Distress, and Depression Through Whole-Person Healing (Hardcover)
Written by psychiatrist and award-winning author Eve A Wood, M.D., 10 Steps to Take Charge of Your Emotional Life: Overcoming Anxiety, Distress, and Depression Through Whole-Person Healing is a straightforward self-empowerment guide written for everyone - from people dealing with fallout from a catastrophic emotional event to individuals coping with medical conditions such as brain chemical imbalance, to ordinary readers simply seeking to improve the overall quality of their emotional lives. The steps, discussed at length in the chapters, offer a very logical and practical approach to dealing with difficult problems, from determining whether one is in need of medication to making life choices that are suited for one's personal nature to sharing stories and building connections. A positive-minded, life-empowering guide, that gives useful information about the benefits of not only psychotherapy and traditional medicine, and does not scoff at the possible benefits of alternative medicine. 10 Steps to Take Charge of Your Emotional Life is a consumable text, offering the reader the opportunity to fill in blanks and express thoughts of self-discovery or self-empowerment. A valuable self-help guide for anyone coping with anxiety, distress, or depression.

5.0 out of 5 stars Start here! This book will change your life., February 15, 2007
This review is from: 10 Steps to Take Charge of Your Emotional Life: Overcoming Anxiety, Distress, and Depression Through Whole-Person Healing (Hardcover)
Dr. Wood is a seasoned and astute psychiatrist with a wealth of experience. In this book she presents an approach that is easy to understand, and more importantly, easy to implement. She does not present any esoteric analytical or existential ideologies, but rather guides the reader to greater personal insight and problem solving that is practical and achievable. I recommend this book as highly as her first book. Start here and you are on the way to greater personal understanding, growth, self-control, and happiness.

I have found this book as a wonderful tool, I am sure that it can make a difference in someone's life if they really read and use the proposed tools that it has, I have obtained really good results in my personal progress by taking into consideration many of the suggestions that Dr Wood does. Knowing yourself concepts that she proposed are effective, to the point and really clearly explained...really all the book is that way.

This book is so complete mainly for someone that is looking for literature that focuses on mind, body & spirit healing.

I have share some of the ideas that I have learned with my friends, collegues and some psychologist friends of mine, this has come a highly interesting conversation topic and some of them are adquiring this book to keep on learning and helping their personal growth & healing process.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 Steps to Take Charge of Your Emotional Life: Overcoming Anxiety, Distress, and Depression Through Whole-Person Healing, June 7, 2011
By Eve A. Wood (Hay House Publishing, 2007)

Written in an encouraging tone, this book provides valuable information to assist you with overcoming your emotional health issue(s). This book is partitioned into ten steps that start with considering your situation and ending with nurturing your spirit. Various treatment options are described and analyzed based on differing emotional health issues. The author communicates helpful insights, while still offering the reader to make their own treatment decision matrix.

Combining the author's own experience with emotional health situations, this book conveys a down to earth tool to help others without trying to persuade readers to either medication or alternate treatments. Making healthy life choices is explained in detail to assist the reader in transforming their overall life and health to improve their body's overall operation. Stories of people that have experienced a wide range of emotional health issues are expressed to educate the reader on what type of treatment options were successful for them.

The author has included some spaces in this book to write your thoughts and a portion in the back to write notes. A Glossary and Index are enclosed in the back of this book. Bound in a durable hardback with dust cover, this book would be a wonderful toolbox of assistance for people experiencing an emotional health issue.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free through Hay House Publishing book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255vf: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

5.0 out of 5 stars enlightening, October 22, 2007

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 10 Steps to Take Charge of Your Emotional Life: Overcoming Anxiety, Distress, and Depression Through Whole-Person Healing (Hardcover)
I am only on chapter 3, or step 3 of the 10 steps. So far I have gained a very real, honest and educated understanding of emotional health. Dr. Wood has many real-life examples that make sense. Somewhere along the line you'll find a connection and thus, gain understanding. One thing she takes into consideration is...there is no one size fits all.
