Book Recommendation: "The Stress Response" by Christy Matta, M.A.

"The Stress Response: How Dialectical Behavior Therapy Can Free You From Needless Anxiety, Worry, Anger, and Other Symptoms of Stress"

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. The Stress Response is the first to offer a dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) program for coping with extreme stress in healthier ways.

Readers learn the four core DBT skills: Mindfulness...Distress tolerance...Emotion regulation... Interpersonal effectiveness. 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.

Why are You Recommending This: The techniques presented in The Stress Response go far beyond self-help. As you explore your personal stress reactions and practice these new methods of coping, it is close to having a private session with a psychologist. You learn how to use stress coping strategies in life for Crisis Survival, Improving Relationships, Emotional Suffering and more. Through practicing mindfulness strategies, developing trust in yourself and staying hopeful and on track, you can lead a less chaotic life and feel less overwhelmed trying to reach your long-term goals.
