Summary

You are about to learn how to step into a new phase of your life where anxiety, worry, fear, negative thoughts, and negative emotions don’t dictate what you can or cannot do!

Anti-anxiety medication may seem like a quick fix to your worries, fears, panic attacks, negative thoughts, and anxieties but the truth is that they do have their downsides, some of them being creating dependence (because they don’t cure but suppress symptoms) and many others. I know you also know that taking a few bottles of beer to "calm down stressed nerves" is a bad approach.

Let me let you in on a secret...

There is another better, healthier, side effect way of dealing with anxiety, depression, excessive worry, negative thinking, fear, and different negative emotions. What’s more; this other method has been proven scientifically to be as effective as medication but without the many negative effects. And the positive effects of this approach last long, as opposed to the temporary effects of medication, beer, and anything else you may have been using to calm down your nervousness.

This strategy is dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), a type of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) that was specially developed to treat borderline personality disorder (BPD) but which found use as treatment for mental illnesses.

Even if you don’t suffer from BPD, you will find DBT highly effective in helping you to develop the capacity to deal with anxiety, depression, worry, fears, panic attacks, negative emotions, and other related problems head on.

I know you might be wondering...

So how does DBT actually help with anxiety, depression, worry, negative emotions, fear, and related problems?

What exactly does DBT entail?

How can you adopt DBT to free yourself from anxiety, worry, negative emotions, and more?

Are there any scientific studies to prove the effectiveness of DBT as a remedy for anxiety, depression, and other related problems?

What will you need to implement DBT in your life?

If you have these and other related questions, this audiobook is for you so keep reading, as it covers the ins and outs of freeing yourself from the claws of anxiety, negative emotions, and much more using simple, easy to follow language.

More precisely, the audiobook will teach you:

  • The basics of anxiety, including what anxiety really is, its effects, and its causes
  • The signs to look out for to know if you have an anxiety disorder
  • An overview of cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy to and how these two can help you manage your anxiety

They hired a robot to read the book

By far the most monotonous audio books on the Amazon book store. If you don’t mind listening to a robot read a book for 10 hrs, read this book.

Steps for assessing, conceptualizing and treating

I am a therapist working with highly disordered adolescents & their families and over the past several years I have been focused on bringing DBT into my practice. I have been highlighting, explaining in the margins, and busily flagging sections (there are A LOT of flags). I love how this book sets out clear steps for assessing, conceptualizing and treating clients within a DBT framework and concretizes complex interventions.

Quality content and narration!

I am in recovery and no longer feel like have my disorders are a death sentence on my life. I can get better, and I am. I recommend this book to anyone, you don't have to have a mental disorder for it to be helpful.

This is a very easy and clear book

I use it in conjunction with a workshop I attend. It is very helpful and in depth. Helps you to really look at your behavior and how to manage and change your thought process.

Used on real patient to develop a treatment plan

I purchased this book for a project in grad school. We had to use a real patient to develop a treatment plan and do imaginary therapy. By the time I was finished, I felt like I had a good grasp of what DBT is supposed to "look like". The book is well explained and easy to understand but not dumped down. There are patient-therapist interactions with explanations. All the components of DBT are explained.

Great examples made difficult DBT concepts clear

It describes all the necessary DBT components and theoretical framework, and it does it in a very easy to listen, engaging manner. These great examples made many of the difficult DBT concepts very clear to me.

This book puts therapy in simpler examples

Very well explained. I am having the pleasure of working with a DBT master and this book puts the therapy in simpler language and examples. I would highly recommend this to other DBT and non-DBT therapists.
