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.

If you could sum up Calming the Emotional Storm in three words, what would they be?
Easy to learn.
What about Rebecca Roberts’s performance did you like?
She reads in a calm, pleasant manner.
Any additional comments?
Calming the emotional storm is a great introduction into learning skills to help if you suffer from borderline personality disorder or are simply a person easily overwhelmed by your emotions. This book has been life changing for me. I listened to it during a rough period in my life. By using the easy to learn skills in this book, I was able to get through this rough period and manage my life.

Very little on actual skills teaching, vignettes, evidence bases, case studies. Repetitive... really repetitive and blaringly obvious and oversimplified in its approach. couldn't stand the emotionless, robotic narrator either.
As a therapist looking into training in DBT, I got nothing out of it and I can imagine this audiobook would verge on insulting client intelligence, too.

I suffer from severe atypical depression, anxiety and I have attention deficit disorder, this book is really helpful. Combining mindfulness and DBT with meds can really do the job. remember - right medication and lots of changes in thinking, you can do it and start being happy again! But please don't neglect any of the aspects. Release yourself from your ego, embrace everything you feel and experience. good luck to everyone who are still fighting <3
