Regulating Emotion the DBT Way is a practical guide to the DBT skill of ‘Opposite Action’, which helps clients develop the skill of up- or down-regulating their emotions when necessary. It is the skill that fosters emotional literacy in clients who have learned to fear or avoid painful feelings. Part A of the text introduces emotion theory, describes how to validate emotions, and explains how Linehan’s ‘Opposite Action’ skill is used to regulate problematic responses. There are examples and analogies that can be shared with clients, and clinical examples to demonstrate the key points. There is a description of how DBT therapists contextualise emotion using chain analysis. Part B dedicates a chapter to each of the basic emotions and describes its signature features. A session scenario is included allowing the reader to see how the therapist coaches the skill of opposite action, elicits behavioural rehearsal, and gives corrective feedback. There are some tips on handling common issues specific to that emotion, based on the author’s extensive experience. This book will be of interest to any therapist who wants to learn more about a behavioural approach to emotion such as psychologists, nurses, social workers, psychiatrists, counsellors, cognitive therapists, prison staff, and occupational therapists. It is an accessible explanation of emotion regulation for people who have already undertaken DBT training.

In this groundbreaking guide for clinicians, psychologist Matthew McKay and Aprilia West present emotional efficacy therapy (EET)—a powerful and proven-effective model for treating clients with emotion regulation disorders. If you treat clients with emotion regulation disorders—including depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder (BPD)—you know how important it is for these clients to take control of their emotions and choose their actions in accordance with their values. To help, emotion efficacy therapy (EET) provides a new, theoretically-driven, contextually-based treatment that integrates components from acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) into an exposure-based protocol. In doing so, EET targets the transdiagnostic drivers of experiential avoidance and distress intolerance to increase emotional efficacy. This step-by-step manual will show you how to help your clients confront and accept their pain, and learn to apply new adaptive responses to emotional triggers. Using a brief treatment that lasts as little as eight weeks, you will be able to help your clients understand and develop a new relationship with their emotions, learn how to have mastery over their emotional experience, practice values-based action in the midst of being emotionally triggered, and stop intense emotions from getting in the way of creating the life they want. Using the transdiagnostic, exposure-based approach in this book, you can help your clients manage difficult emotions, curb negative reactions, and start living a better life. This book is a game changer for emotion exposure treatment!

Are you struggling with dealing with your emotions, especially with those painful ones? Are you struggling with understanding what is happening in your mind, making you do or say things you regret later? Do you want to clear your head and take control over your emotions without resorting to unhealthy choices? If your answer to these questions is yes, you are in the right place. The truth is that everyone, at some point in their life, feels completely overwhelmed by their emotions, especially the negative ones which tend to be the most intense, most difficult, to understand and manage. When these emotions strike, you may feel as if you are completely losing control of what is within your mind. Frustration, anger, sadness, and other extremely intense emotions can be extremely hard to manage. You have probably tried some things to take control over your mind. You have probably tried to make a change in your behavioral pattern, but it did not work in the long run. One of the biggest mistakes people make when dealing with painful emotions is trying to avoid them, instead of accepting them as they are.

There is no magical pill or extremely easy solution here, only hard work and patience. This is where Dialectical Behavior Therapy skills come into play teaching you how to take control over your emotions in a healthy, assertive way. These methods combine different practices such as distress tolerance and emotion regulation which, once embraced, can help you develop your inner resilience and stop needless emotional suffering.

How emotions affect both your physical and mental health. What Dialectical Behavior Therapy is and when it is used. What the main components of dialectical behavior therapy are. How to improve your emotional intelligence with DBT skills. How to enter the wise state of mind. And much much more...

Emotion dysregulation, which is often defined as the inability to modulate strong negative affective states including impulsivity, anger, fear, sadness, and anxiety, is observed in nearly all psychiatric disorders. These include internalizing disorders such as panic disorder and major depression, externalizing disorders such as conduct disorder and antisocial personality disorder, and various others including schizophrenia, autism, and borderline personality disorder. Among many affected individuals, precursors to emotion dysregulation appear early in development, and often predate the emergence of diagnosable psychopathology. The Oxford Handbook of Emotion Dysregulation brings together experts whose work cuts across levels of analysis, including neurobiological, cognitive, and social, in studying emotion dysregulation. Contributing authors describe how early environmental risk exposures shape emotion dysregulation, how emotion dysregulation manifests in various forms of mental illness, and how emotion dysregulation is most effectively assessed and treated. Conceptualizing emotion dysregulation as a core vulnerability to psychopathology is consistent with modern transdiagnostic approaches to diagnosis and treatment, including the Research Domain Criteria and the Unified Protocol, respectively. This handbook is the first text to assemble a highly accomplished group of authors to address conceptual issues in emotion dysregulation research, define the emotion dysregulation construct across levels of cognition, behavior, and social dynamics, describe cutting edge assessment techniques at neural, psychophysiological, and behavioral levels of analysis, and present contemporary treatment strategies.

DBT is one of the nuances out there. It's not as popular as many of the cognitive behavioral therapy out there. DBT helps people that are living with many of the mental health conditions that come with Borderline Personality Disorder (BDP). The major problem with BDP is developing relationships with other people. If you want to know more about this, then keep reading... People with BDP always notice that they feel detached from the people they love so much. They always feel that they're in conflict with the people that they love, and they don't get the joy that they once got from that relationship again.DBT also helps to manage one's feelings. DBT really focuses on managing one's thoughts, changing those unproductive thoughts, and altering one's behaviors and actions so that one's emotional experience gets improved. DBT directly deals with one's bitter emotions; it deals with those emotions head-on. It also provides education about those emotions and their functions, and help the individuals suffering from BDP to be able to manage their emotions better than they're currently doing. It helps them not only to manage but to also regulate their emotions better than they're currently doing and also to manage those stressful emotions in their life, knowing that those stressful emotions aren't going to last for a lifetime. DBT deals with the fact that everyone can get emotional at times. Therefore, we need to learn a better skill-set to utilize those emotions to our advantage. This book covers: The Basic Of Dialect Behavior Therapy How Dialect Behavior Therapy Works Fundamental Dbt Skills Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills Emotion Regulation Skills Mindfulness Skills Distress Tolerance Skills And much more! The concept in DBT does not transcribe to a lack of effectiveness. DBT is not a confusing topic, neither is it about science or medicine. In this book, you will see complex concepts explained in a way that helps you to understand them. DBT helps BDP people with the problems of depression, the feelings of hopelessness. It helps them, especially when they feel that they're moving in the wrong direction in life. The Modules in DBT will help you to move towards the good paths in life rather than the bad paths. DBT is really about engaging in techniques that can help to move your life forward in a very positive way and help you to live a better life even if there are some atrophic events happening in your life right now. It will also help you to improve your long-term trajectories and relationships. It will help you to reach the goals that you've set out for yourself. DBT can provide those tangible things that will help you to manage your symptoms better so that they don't overwhelm you. The great thing about DBT is that it's an approachable treatment, and it's very goal-oriented. It's really a short term program that lasts anywhere between 3 - 6 months. After undergoing the techniques in DBT, you'll be equipped with the ability to go back and try them on your own, i.e. to become your own therapist. With DBT, you'll feel your emotions changing in just 2 weeks of trying it out, which is like one-third of the time that an SSRI takes to work. Ready to get started? Click "Buy Now"!
