Dialectical Behavior Therapsy Skills Workbook: Practical DBT Exercises for Learning Mindfulness, Interpersonal Effectiveness, Emotional Regulation & Distress Tolerance by Matther McKay, PhD.
"When you can tell the story and it doesn't bring up any pain, you know it is healed." - Iyanla Vanzant, Broken Pieces
Half of it is devoted to men and their healing, the other is written for his partner.
Would you say it is more for people who are OVER emotional? Or for those who shut down/avoid distress and conflict? Or both
Both. However, I will say that FWH had a great deal of trouble dealing with emotions. He's a recovering alcoholic, and he drank to get rid of any uncomfortable emotion- and almost any emotion was uncomfortable. IC helped the most with dealing with this. His counselor used a step-wise approach with him to help him identify when he was having a feeling, what feeling it was, and decide what he needed to do with the feeling.
DBT takes a similar approach.
