Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Life is stressful, and that’s not always a bad thing. A certain amount of stress actually helps us work more productively and take action in a crisis. But recurrent and prolonged stress can paralyze us or lead us to feel exhausted, angry, or overwhelmed. The skills presented in The Stress Response can dramatically change the way you process stress. And they don’t take much time to learn. Drawn from a technique therapists use called dialectical behavior therapy, these powerful strategies can help you manage the slings and arrows of life more gracefully and effectively.

After learning the skills in this book, you’ll:

• Respond quickly to early signs of stress

• Approach, not avoid, stressful tasks and events

• Cope effectively with life events that contribute to stress

• Change the catastrophic thoughts and biases that make stress worse

• Practice soothing strategies for calming your body’s stress response

Synopsis:

The Stress Response offers readers a dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) approach to overcoming stress-related symptoms that decrease readers’ quality of life and lead to unhealthy avoidance behaviors. By learning the core DBT techniques: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness; readers can learn to process stress in healthy and productive ways.

Synopsis:

Stress affects everyone in different ways and can actually help some people become more productive and innovative. But extreme stress more often has a paralyzing effect, and can lead to negative coping behaviors like anger, emotional overreactions, anxiety, and alcohol, drug, or food abuse. This book is the first to offer a dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) program for coping with extreme stress in healthier ways. The four DBT skills can help those prone to overreactions and other negative responses to stress to embrace imperfections, expand their options, and soothe themselves in stressful situations. The Stress Response invites readers to explore their personal stress reactions and practice these new methods of solving the everyday problems that trigger stress. Readers also learn to accept their most stressed-out emotions and thoughts without judging them, and gradually decrease their vulnerability to stress.
