Publisher's Summary

All people want to live a healthier and more joyful life free from pain and circumstance. However, this is rarely the case, especially, when those negative emotions tend to creep in and take control over our lives. Sometimes it can be extremely hard to avoid that negative darkness which can very easily start consuming everything happening around you. On the other hand, it is possible to fully embrace the good things and not let those negativities, small or large, impact our happiness, joy, and peace.

Thanks to the Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and its strategies and teachings, you can learn to live a truly, emotionally rich and fulfilling life which includes being satisfied with yourself, having healthy, meaningful relationships with other people, being able to accept changes as they happen by not letting the undesirable thoughts stick in your mind to bring you down.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy has proven effective in reducing depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other symptoms prevalent in different types of mental health issues. However, the truth is that anyone, no matter their mental health state, can benefit from DBT. As soon as you embrace the DBT strategies and techniques, expect to see more joy and happiness enter your life.  

Get this book now, and learn how to live in the moment as you fully embrace everything good happening around you!

No actual tools

Just a very, very detailed explanation about the therapy, but no actual self help tools

no real information

little to no actual DBT therapies, repetitive content and phrasing. the whole of the shared information would be better suited to a pamphlet than a book.

Disappointed in this.

The narration is monotone and hard to listen to. It is basically a reading of an academic overview of DBT.

Of no use.

Not written by a trained DBT professional- it just seems like a sales pitch for DBT. No practical value.

DBT!

With the strategies and techniques of DBT I am sure that can help you control negativeness and be completely happy in your life. The narration of the book adds the motivation it gives to the listener.

Start to Finish...non-stop!!!

It explains so much of things I have experienced in life and helped me to get some clarity as to how to deal with it and move forward in a positive manner. Great book, easy listening, I couldn't put it down once I started.

perfect


For someone who likes to write and journal, I wasn't to keen to the set-up of the DBT diary cards themselves. So when I found this gem which has a whole intro section on the four modules of DBT (for review when needed) and then the rest of the book has a years worth of a Diary Card Journal section-this was perfect

Not a self-help book

If you are looking for a book to teach you the basic DBT skills, this is not it. The entire book is simply the author telling you how useful DBT is, why you might need to learn it, and what wonderful things you will learn when you learn DBT. I know that. That's why I bought this book - to begin learning it. It's like a book on car maintenance that tells you how useful it is to learn car maintenance and the many wonderful benefits it will bring to your car... but no actual instructions on how to get started other than "find a good mechanics teacher".

Not only that, but the narrator spoke in such a monotone that it sounded like the book was being read by a robot, which made it hard to concentrate (although to be honest, there wasn't much worth concentrating on, so perhaps the narrator was simply as bored as I was!).

What an absolute waste of time and money. I have never read such a pointless book before.

This is the worst books in this category I've read

Awful. The most Repetitive book about how great DBT is but never actually tells you how to apply or use the skills. I am a therapist and it seemed the author knows virtually nothing about DBT but just keeps repeating the virtues of learning from it. It sounded like an advertisement for DBT as if he had commission for selling the therapy. Wouldn't even class as an introduction. Don't waste your money.

It's important to remember anti-depressants help


It's important to remember anti-depressants help quite a bit, but if you still have to fight with that big ball of depression every day, unending, than this is a technique and a therapy (you can do it on your own), that's worth a try.

After listening many dialectical behavior books, all easy to read, and practical heads up, even if you have been in therapy forever, dialectical behavior can really do the job

escellent book

The journal is excellent. While there are many on-line options available, I personally find that this method of recording requires me to think more and gain better insight. An excellent book.
