Review

"I highly recommend this well-written, user-friendly workbook written especially for teens. It provides easy to use tools for harnessing unruly emotions and calming uncontrolled thinking. By following the suggestions in this workbook, teens will feel more capable of controlling their mood, have more harmonious relationships, gain confidence, and live happier lives."
--Linda Jeffery, RN, cognitive behavior therapist in private practice in Newmarket, Ontario

"Don't Let Your Emotions Run Your Life for Teens examines many areas that teenagers (and subsequently parents) struggle with. Sheri Van Dijk offers tangible tools to deal with emotional upheaval, volatile emotions and difficult relationships. The exercises that Van Dijk includes in each chapter will assist teens by offering them options for coping with their emotions. Having raised three teenagers, I strongly believe these skills should be taught in schools as part of the curriculum!"
--Kathy Christie, ADR, mental health case manager at York Support Services Network in Newmarket, ON, Canada

"Van Dijk has written a workbook that any teen struggling with emotions will find very helpful. Using clear and concise language, this workbook offers awareness-enhancing exercises and practical help for recognizing, sorting out, and changing the way painful emotions can be handled. I found this book useful and easy to read, and I will recommend it to my teenage patients."
--Mark R. Katz, MD, FRCOP(C), staff psychiatrist at the Southlake Regional Health Centre and assistant professor at the University of Toronto in Canada

Emotions are generally undervalued in Western society. Many of us receive negative messages about emotions and come to experience them as worthless, problematic, or dangerous. However, emotions are powerful motivators and valid sources of knowledge. Van Dijk addresses these, and other important issues, in this book. She presents information about a range of emotional issues in an accessible manner. She also includes activities that will help deepen the reader's understanding and integration of the material.
Karma Guindon, MSW, RSW, RMFT"

Strongly recommended for teens whose moods interfere with their ability to enjoy life and relationships. Van Dijk has presented Linehan s dialectical behavior therapy skills in a manner that is user-friendly and easy to understand. Van Dijk first describes why these skills can be useful, then presents exercises that give the reader an opportunity to practice the skills.
