Parenting a Teen Who Has Intense Emotions: DBT Skills to Help Your Teen


Product Description

Published USA, 2016
If children have always been highly sensitive to emotional experiences and have had behavioural issues during childhood, this emotional intensity may lead to more disruptive behaviours when they enter adolescence. Or they may always have been able to manage their emotions and, now, in adolescence, sadness becomes depression, anger and anxiety. This book offers evidence-based skills using dialectical behaviour therapy. It helps parents and carers recognise and accept their own feelings, understand and accept their teenager's experiences, and make changes so that they can parent in more balanced and effective ways.
