Product Description

Imported from USA


“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

“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

“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.”
—Marilyn Becker, MSW, RSW, clinical supervisor at Addiction Services for York Region
