Michael L. Emmons (Author)
Michael Emmons, PhD, is a psychologist in private practice, who has been a consultant to educational, government and business organizations, a trainer of marriage and family counseling interns at California Polytechnic State University, and author/co-author of seven books.
Emmons and assertiveness training became synonymous when he co-authored Your Perfect Right with Robert Alberti. Since 1970, he has devoted much of his life's work to furthering and understanding assertiveness. Although his focus on assertive living has taken center stage, he has been an innovator in terms of dealing with the whole person, mentally, physically and spiritually.
A lifelong meditator, Emmons has practiced daily, often in the garden by a koi pond. This practice helped him form his approach to psychology and led him to develop the system he calls meditative therapy. The Inner Source: A Guide to Meditative Therapy first detailed this holistic, eyes-closed method that facilitates an inner source to generate therapeutic and creative experiences. Meditative Therapy expands on this method as a therapeutic modality with wide ranging mental, physical, emotional and spiritual effects.

The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for PTSD

Kirby Reutter
Authors:
Kirby Reutter

This pragmatic workbook offers evidence-based skills grounded in dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) to help you find lasting relief from trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). If you've experienced trauma, you should know that there is nothing wrong with you. Trauma is a normal reaction to an abnormal event. Sometimes, the symptoms of trauma persist long after the traumatic situation has ceased. This is what we call PTSD-in other words, the "trauma after the trauma." This happens when the aftereffects of trauma-such as anxiety, depression, anger, fear, insomnia and even addiction - end up causing more ongoing harm than the trauma itself. So, how can you start healing? With this powerful and proven-effective workbook, you'll find practical exercises for overcoming trauma using mindfulness, interpersonal effectiveness, emotion regulation and distress tolerance. You'll learn how to be present in the moment and identity the things that trigger your trauma. You'll also find activities and exercises to help you cope with stress, manage intense emotions, navigate conflict with others and change unhealthy thought patterns that keep you stuck. Finally, you'll find practical materials for review and closure, so you can take what you've learned out into the world with you. If you're ready to move past your trauma and start living your life again, this workbook will help guide you, one step at a time. The practical interventions in this guide can be used on their own or in conjunction with therapy.

Fox, Daniel J

Introducing a breakthrough, integrative approach to managing your borderline personality disorder (BPD). If you've been diagnosed with BPD you may feel a number of emotions - including shock, shame, sadness, abandonment, emptiness, or even anger. Even worse, you may be tempted to research your diagnosis online, only to find doomsday scenarios and terrible prognoses everywhere you click. Take a deep breath. You can get through this - and this workbook will help guide you. Despite what you may have read or been told, BPD is not the worst thing that can happen to you. Like many mental health issues, it manifests on a continuum and while some people may experience extreme symptoms and consequences on one end, others may be less affected on the other. What do you all have in common? You likely experience difficulty balancing your emotions, thoughts and behaviours that disrupt how you see yourself and the success you have in relationships. And you may even have trouble seeing yourself clearly - continuously switching from the hero to the villain of the story you've written about your life. So, how can you make sense of it all and start on the road to healing? Rather than utilizing a one-size-fits-all treatment, this ground-breaking and comprehensive workbook meets you where you are on your therapeutic journey and provides an integrative approach to treating BPD drawing on evidence-based dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy. With this compassionate workbook, you'll gain a greater understanding of your BPD, uncover your own emotional triggers and discover your own personal motivators for positive change. Your BPD has determined how you see and live your life but it doesn't have to define you forever. With this workbook as your guide, you'll be ready to face your diagnosis head-on, and take those important first steps toward lasting wellness.

Contextual Schema Therapy

Eckhard Roediger, Bruce A. Stevens, Robert Brockman
Authors:
Eckhard Roediger, Bruce A. Stevens, Robert Brockman

In this groundbreaking book, three internationally recognized psychologists present a step-by-step guide outlining the most up-to-date innovations in schema therapy (ST). This important book offers a clear and practical road map for putting the schema mode model into practice, improving clients' interpersonal functioning, and integrates the latest advances in contextual behavioral psychology. ST is a powerful, integrative treatment model that combines aspects of cognitive, behavioral, and psychodynamic therapies. It has proven highly effective in treating a number of mental health issues, including difficult-to-treat personality disorders. ST's main premise is that mental health issues arise as a result of unmet emotional needs in childhood, leading to the development of early maladaptive schemas (EMS). But, more and more, ST has shifted away from EMS to focus on schema content-that is, changing the way clients relate to their experiences and to others. This book incorporates the latest findings in contextual behavioral science with a focus on clients' coping styles - or schema modes - and improving interpersonal functioning. The book includes exercises from compassion-focused therapies, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and even functional analytic psychotherapy (FAP) to help your clients become more aware of their own unhealthy coping patterns and behaviors. You'll also discover a range of emotion-focused and experiential techniques to use in therapy with your client.

ACT for Psychosis Recovery

Authors:
Emma K. O'Donoghue, Eric M.J. Morris, Joseph E. Oliver, Louise C. Johns

ACT for Psychosis Recovery is the first book to provide a breakthrough, evidence-based, step-by-step approach for group work with clients suffering from psychosis. As evidenced in a study by Patricia A. Bach and Steven C. Hayes, patients with psychotic symptoms who received acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) in addition to treatment as usual showed half the rate of rehospitalization as those who did not. With this important guide, you'll learn how a patient's recovery can be both supported and sustained by promoting acceptance, mindfulness, and values-driven action.The journey of personal recovery from psychosis is immensely challenging. Patients often struggle with paranoia, auditory hallucinations, difficulties with motivation, poor concentration and memory, and emotional dysregulation. In addition, families and loved ones may have trouble understanding psychosis, and stigmatizing attitudes can limit opportunity and create alienation for patients.True recovery from psychosis means empowering patients to take charge of their lives. Rather than focusing on pathology, ACT teaches patients how to stay grounded in the present moment, disengage from their symptoms, and pursue personally meaningful lives based on their values.In this groundbreaking book, you will learn how to facilitate ACT groups based on a central metaphor (Passengers on the Bus), so that mindfulness and values-based action are introduced in a way that is engaging and memorable. You will also find tips and strategies to help clients identify valued directions, teach clients how to respond flexibly to psychotic symptoms, thoughts, and emotions that have been barriers to living a valued life, and lead workshops that promote compassion and connection among participants.You'll also find tried and tested techniques for engaging people in groups, particularly those traditionally seen as "hard to reach"-people who may be wary of mental health services or experience paranoia. And finally, you'll gain skills for engaging participants from various ethnic backgrounds.Finding purpose and identity beyond mental illness is an important step in a patient's journey toward recovery. Using the breakthrough approach in this book, you can help clients gain the insight needed to achieve lasting well-being.

The Skills Training Manual for Radically Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy

Thomas R. Lynch
Authors:
Thomas R. Lynch

Radically open-dialectical behavior therapy (RO-DBT) is a groundbreaking, transdiagnostic treatment model for clients with difficult-to-treat overcontrol (OC) disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, chronic depression, and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Written by the founder of RO-DBT, Thomas Lynch, this is the first and only session-by-session training manual to help you implement this evidence-based therapy in your practice.As a clinician, you're familiar with dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and its success in treating clients with emotion dysregulation disorders. But what about clients with overcontrol disorders? OC has been linked to social isolation, aloof and distant relationships, cognitive rigidity, risk aversion, a strong need for structure, inhibited emotional expression, and hyper-perfectionism. And yet-perhaps due to the high value our society places on the capacity to delay gratification and inhibit public displays of destructive emotions and impulses-problems linked with OC have received little attention or been misunderstood. Indeed, people with OC are often considered highly successful by others, even as they suffer silently and alone.RO-DBT is based on the premise that psychological well-being involves the confluence of three factors: receptivity, flexibility, and social-connectedness. RO-DBT addresses each of these important factors, and is the first treatment in the world to prioritize social-signaling as the primary mechanism of change based on a transdiagnostic, neuroregulatory model linking the communicative function of human emotions to the establishment of social connectedness and well being. As such, RO-DBT is an invaluable resource for treating an array of disorders that center around overcontrol and a lack of social connectedness-such as anorexia nervosa, chronic depression, postpartum depression, treatment resistant anxiety disorders, autism spectrum disorders, as well as personality disorders such as avoidant, dependent, obsessive-compulsive, and paranoid personality disorder.In this training manual, you'll find an outline of RO-DBT, including history, research, and how it differs from traditional DBT. You'll also find a session-by-session RO-DBT outpatient treatment protocol, with sections that outline the weekly, one-hour individual therapy sessions and weekly two-and-a-half hour skills training classes that occur over a period of approximately thirty weeks. This includes instructor guidelines and user-friendly worksheets.The feasibility, acceptability, and efficacy of RO-DBT is evidence-based and informed by over twenty years of translational treatment development research. This important manual-along with its companion book, Radically-Open Dialectical Behavior Therapy (available separately), distills the essential components of RO-DBT into a workable program you can start using right away to improve treatment outcomes for clients suffering with OC.

Charting the long path from shock, trauma, and overwhelming pain, to a life that once again contains joy, love, and laughter, The Unspeakable Loss addresses the importance of self-care and also provides a needed view into how the death of a child affects siblings and other family members. Written in a Q & A format, The Unspeakable Loss goes deeply to the heart of grief, answering the urgent questions that accompany loss. "Will my tears ever stop?" "Who am I now without my child?" "How can I help my other children cope?" "Will my marriage survive?" "Will life ever feel worth living again?" By directly answering the questions raised by grief, The Unspeakable Loss speaks wisely and compassionately, offering bite-sized chunks of wisdom in language the bereaved can absorb. Addressing parents no matter where they are in their grief cycle, whether newly bereaved or dealing with a death that occurred many years earlier, the book offers insight from other bereaved parents, as well as Zenoff's personal story. While books on grief have sadness at their core, the best ones also contain invaluable wisdom. The Unspeakable Loss emphasizes hope and recovery above all. While it doesn't flinch from the reality and pain of parental loss, ultimately it is a book about embracing life.
