Publisher's Summary

When you have difficulties managing your emotions, it can feel like you're losing control of your whole life. Anger, hurt, grief, worry, and other intense feelings can be overwhelming, and how you react to these emotions can impact your ability to maintain relationships, succeed at work, or even think straight! If you find it difficult to understand, express, and process intense emotions - and most of us do - this book is for you.
Calming the Emotional Storm is your guide to coping with difficult emotions calmly and responsibly by using powerful skills from dialectical behavior therapy. This method combines cognitive behavioral techniques with mindfulness practices to change the way you respond to stressful situations. By practicing these skills, you can stop needless emotional suffering and develop the inner resilience that will help you weather any emotional storm.

basic... at best

Very little on actual skills teaching, vignettes, evidence bases, case studies. Repetitive... really repetitive and blaringly obvious and oversimplified in its approach. couldn't stand the emotionless, robotic narrator either.

As a therapist looking into training in DBT, I got nothing out of it and I can imagine this audiobook would verge on insulting client intelligence, too.
