Worst Book I've Ever Read

Filled with trite and condescending ideas. Find a better book on the subject. Don't bother with this one.

Highly recommended

I recommend this book to anyone seeking to change their reactions by cognitive behavioral therapy. It’s a good resource as it provides a workbook section that allows to study and apply these processes and document the outcome.

Very insightful!

Easy to follow and you can jump around to various chapters, as I do to follow my class. It has helped me a lot by recognizing my behavioral trends with emotionally thinking and bringing me to the here and now. I highly recommend!! One of the best self help books I have used.

This was a great book.

This is a great book to learn more skills when working with clients. The case study that is used throughout the book allows a flow between all of the chapters and helps highlight how the various techniques can be used with a single client.

Great listen

This audiobook has been so helpful for me. I listen to it in my car and at home. It is relaxing and has given me insight to the tools to use to keep me on track. I have taken DBT training and have DBT skills cards I use daily while journalism. This adds another element to keeping in line thru my daily struggles with Bipolar

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.

The latter targets the psychological facets of behavior versus Cognitive Behavior Therapy the focuses on negative thinking patterns.

Very helpful and useful audio.

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.
