Publisher's Summary

When you have difficulties managing your emotions, it can feel like you're losing control of your whole life. Anger, hurt, grief, worry, and other intense feelings can be overwhelming, and how you react to these emotions can impact your ability to maintain relationships, succeed at work, or even think straight! If you find it difficult to understand, express, and process intense emotions - and most of us do - this book is for you.
Calming the Emotional Storm is your guide to coping with difficult emotions calmly and responsibly by using powerful skills from dialectical behavior therapy. This method combines cognitive behavioral techniques with mindfulness practices to change the way you respond to stressful situations. By practicing these skills, you can stop needless emotional suffering and develop the inner resilience that will help you weather any emotional storm.

Don't let title throw you off

Although some might be attracted to the book by the title, others (that might REALLY benefit) might be turned off by it. It's an excellent book, promoting a far better understanding of self, needs and skills to improve effective emotional management AND communication with self and others! It bridges the gaps we have between words/language and a deep understanding of what things really mean and how to apply it all. Chapters end with summarized key points, exercises and tips! Extremely well thought out and written.
