Don't Let Your Emotions Run Your Life for Kids
The first dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) guide for children has arrived. This activity-based workbook is for youth who struggle with anger, mood swings, and emotional and behavioral dysregulation. The hands-on activities outlined in this book help kids manage their emotions, get along with others, and do better in school. By reading this book, children will develop a "skills toolbox" for dealing with intense emotions as they arise, no matter what comes their way.
This is a great resource to have available in your classroom, clinic, or home!
“Don’t Let Your Emotions Run Your Life for Kids effectively conveys useful information about the challenging emotions children face, and ways for kids to deal with them in language far more accessible than most material available on these topics. As a plus, parents who assist their children in the useful exercises provided in the book may well find themselves picking up helpful tips for managing their own emotions as well!”
—Mark Carlson-Ghost, PhD, associate professor at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University-Twin Cities Campus
