Publisher's Summary

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 nonclinical 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.  

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.

Irritating voice

Who would choose this narrator on purpose. I appreciate the information but listening to this squeaky cartoon voice narrator ruins it. Her voice is like nails on a chalk board. It is worse than when my toddler watches Mickey Mouse.

Voice difficult to listen to

The material is excellent. But the narrator’s voice is the most difficult for me to listen to in my Audible library of hundreds of books.
