When we are regularly undone by our emotions, we become victims of damaged relationships, trapped circumstances, self-sabotage, and illness. In this breakthrough new workbook, a psychologist who has had amazing results treating patients with emotional problems, helps all of us gain the upper hand on our feelings and our lives.
Many of us know the helpless predicament of losing control of our emotions. We may not be clinically "crazy" but instead "high reactors," experiencing overpowering feelings that knock us off balance, plunge us into depression, make us fly off the handle, or terrify us without warning.
We can anticipate, understand, avoid and replace these "high reactions" by applying the methods of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). DBT is an eclectic mix of cognitive-behavioral techniques, skills training, Zen, and existentialism, that has been honed for the treatment of the highest reactors among us.

I learned many very invaluable things from this workbook about why my emotions are the way they are, and how they work, and what it means. Also the exercises themselves are practical for the most part, and helpful. I literally would feel better after completing the exercises, instantly sometimes. Other times not instantly, but that's to be expected I think from anything in life.
As far as myself, I am NOT borderline or diagnosed with any mental illness; I am one of the people who simply felt they have at times unmanageable and overly painful emotions. I really appreciated about this book that the author accepts people like me as well. Many other books I looked at for help with emotions were so geared towards people with severe disorders that I started to fear I HAD borderline disorder simply because I have strong emotions. Not so.
I see from other reviews that there are people who DO have borderline who also found this workbook very helpful, and my opinion is that that signifies good things about the effectiveness and accuracy of the workbook. Seems to be helpful for a range of people and I think that's fantastic.
Did not give it 5 stars because unfortunately all of the work I put into it didn't seem to be permanent... I.E. don't go thinking that this is a magic cure. But it's very helpful, got me through some tough times, and if I were to go through it again I would probably try to incorporate certain exercises more slowly into daily habits in my life, for hopefully a more permanent effect.
It's a great treasure.....tb
