Emotion Regulation

Title: Don’t Let Your Emotions Run Your Life: How Dialectical Behavior Therapy Can Put You in Control
Author: Scott E. Spradlin
Publisher: Oakland, CA: New Harbinger Publications
Publication Date: 2008

“Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is a therapeutic technique designed to counter extreme emotional reactions — before they lead to overwhelming anger, depression, anxiety, and stress-related ailments. An eclectic mix of cognitive-behavioral techniques, skills training, Zen, and existentialism, DBT helps readers pay attention to their emotions, assess their blocks to controlling them, become less judgmental of themselves when they lose control, and ultimately eliminate overpowering feelings. Worksheets and assessment exercises round out this breakthrough program.” --publisher
