Publisher's summary

This audiobook is simple: It’s intended to help you understand dialectical behavior therapy, what it is, why it’s used, and how you can use it effectively in order to better regulate your emotions, deal with stressful situations, and use the power of mindfulness in your day-to-day life in order to improve the quality of living overall. This audiobook is especially useful as a reference for people with borderline personality disorder if used in tandem with a personal therapist.

The intent of dialectical behavior therapy is to give somebody a “life worth living”, as stated by the creator of the therapy. If you feel like you need to regain control over your emotions and your life, then dialectical behavior therapy gives you a fantastic springboard from which to start.

Working from the basics of the therapy to the specifics of the different skills it helps you to build, we’ll cover everything from why this was developed to how to use it effectively every day, as well as propose the general plan for dialectical behavior therapy so you have a schedule with which to work.

If you need help regulating your emotions, don’t wait; get this audiobook and find vital tips to benefit your emotional health.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy

This book is different in that it is wonderfully structured so that it feels possible to attempt and then complete. The writing is easy to understand and relate to, and the exercises are practical and real. The book asks the kinds of questions that people suffering from depression can still answer and find some hope when doing so. It is the perfect supplement to my work and I will be suggesting to my clients that they consider this book. The skills are useful and practical and not cluttered with jargon and explanations.

Great Resource

To control your emotions and overcome any stress you have is never easy especially you are in the dark side of it. This is the best therapy I ever listen that for me is effective enough to take charge of all.
