Alexander L. Chapman PhD RPsych - The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for Anxiety
If you have an anxiety disorder or experience anxiety symptoms that interfere with your day-to-day life, you can benefit from learning four simple skills that therapists use with their clients. These easy-to-learn skills are at the heart of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), a cutting-edge therapeutic approach that can help you better manage the panic attacks, worries, and fears that limit your life and keep you feeling stuck.
This book will help you learn these four powerful skills:
- Mindfulness helps you connect with the present moment and notice passing thoughts and feelings without being ruled by them.
- Acceptance skills foster self-compassion and a nonjudgmental stance toward your emotions and worries.
- Interpersonal effectiveness skills help you assert your needs in order to build more fulfilling relationships with others.
- Emotion regulation skills help you manage anxiety and fear before they get out of control.
