Mind and Emotions
A Universal Treatment for Emotional Disorders
We all have our own ways of handling stressful situations without letting emotions get the best of us, but some ways of coping work better than others. Short-term fixes that help us avoid or numb our emotions may temporarily alleviate sadness and anger, but can also end up causing anxiety, depression, chronic anger, and even physical health problems. If you struggle with overwhelming emotions and feel trapped by unhealthy patterns, this workbook is your ticket out.
- Clarifying and acting on your core values
- Mindfulness and acceptance
- Detaching from negative thoughts
- Self-soothing and relaxation exercises
- Assertiveness and interpersonal skills
- Gradually facing your strong emotions
