Publisher's Summary

Temper tantrums in the supermarket. Tears that seem to come out of nowhere. Battles over homework that are more like wars. When your child has problems regulating his or her emotions, there's no hiding it. Children with intense emotions go from zero to 100 in seconds and are prone to frequent emotional and behavioral outbursts that leave parents feeling bewildered and helpless. Other parents may have told you that it's just a phase or that your child needs discipline. In reality your child may have emotion dysregulation, a tendency to react intensely to situations other children take in stride.
Parenting a Child Who Has Intense Emotions is an effective guide to de-escalating your child's emotions and helping your child express feelings in productive ways. You'll learn strategies drawn from dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), including mindfulness and validation skills, and practice them when your child's emotions spin out of control. This well-researched method for managing emotions can help your child make dramatic emotional and behavioral changes that both of you will be proud of.

This is a very factual, instructional book with a

This is a very factual instructional book with a lot of helpful information.
It is very consistent and provides a program with clear steps that are explained and based off of science and not opinion.
Does not have unnecessary information trying to convince and encourage you. That may feel "dry" to some people, to me it is a very good thing, in some books the "bla bla bla" part takes up to 50 percent of the book and the instructions can fit on 2 pages. This is not one of those.
