Keep calm, be skillful―and take control!

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) is one of the most popular―and most effective―treatments for mental health conditions that result from out-of-control emotions. Combining elements of Cognitive Behavior Therapy with Eastern mindfulness practice, DBT was initially used as a powerful treatment to address the suffering associated with borderline personality disorder. It has since proven to have positive effects on many other mental health conditions and is frequently found in non-clinical settings, such as schools. Whether you struggle with depression, anger, phobias, disordered eating, or want to have a better understanding of emotions and how to focus and calm your mind, DBT practice serves the needs of those facing anything from regular life challenges to severe psychological distress.

Written in a no-jargon, friendly style by two of Harvard Medical School’s finest, DBT For Dummies shows how DBT can teach new ways not just to reverse, but to actively take control of self-destructive behaviors and negative thought patterns, allowing you to transform a life of struggle into one full of promise and meaning. Used properly and persistently, the skills and strategies in this book will change your life: when you can better regulate emotions, interact effectively with people, deal with stressful situations, and use mindfulness on a daily basis, it’s easier to appreciate what’s good in yourself and the world, and then act accordingly. In reading this book, you will:

Understand DBT theory
Learn more adaptive ways to control your emotions
Improve the quality of your relationships
Deal better with uncertainty
Many of life’s problems are not insurmountable even if they appear to be. Life can get better, if you are willing to live it differently. Get DBT For Dummies and discover the proven methods that will let you take back control―and build a brighter, more capable, and promising future!

    5.0 out of 5 stars A Book for Everyone - not to be missed

    I’ve been aware of DBT for years, snd I’ve always said that everybody should learn about it, not just people in acute emotional distress. This book does a wonderful job of giving the breadth and depth of DBT.

    5.0 out of 5 stars AN Excellent Review of a Complex Therapy

    DBT has always had a mystery about it. At one point seemed like a bot of a cult, but this book demystifies the practice of DBT and makes something quite mysterious, easy to follow.

    It goes into all the skills and how the whole thing works. It has some great mindfulness practices.
