Book Review – Soothe Yourself: Learning Emotional Self-Regulation


Full title:  “Soothe Yourself: Learning Emotional Self-Regulation: For People with Anxiety, Depression, NPD, BPD, IED, SPD, Bipolar, ADHD, ASPD, AVPD, and ASD (Transcend Mediocrity Book 88)” Kindle Edition

I have this book on Kindle and audiobook download.  I have just read the Kindle version.  It is really good.  It talks a lot about where emotional self-dysregulation comes from and provides some help on the subject.  I would have liked for it to provide a few more examples, such as some relaxation exercises, but other than that, this is an excellent book.  I recommend it to anyone with BPD or any of the other conditions listed.

There is a link at the end of the book to the author’s publication company.  It does not work.

I really liked some of the information about where self-dysregulation comes from, and the tips provided.  I’m going to check out the audiobook version and do a review on it next.  Stay tuned for that!  Till next time,

— Joyce.

Are These 5 Myths about Emotions Holding You Back? | World of Psychology


We are emotional beings. As complex patterns of internal reactions to external stimuli, emotions are what helped the human species survive. Emotions direct our actions and determine our well-being and health. Whether we are aware of our emotions or not, whether we talk about emotions or not, and whether we recognize their vital importance or not, emotions are an integral part of our lives and have a powerful effect on us. What kind of effect? That all depends on how we manage any given emotion. False assumptions and lack of skills to regulate emotions often get in the way of effectively dealing with them. Although inter-related, challenging false assumptions is a crucial first step of emotion regulation training. Here are five common myths about emotions (derived from Dialectical Behavior Therapy) you’ll want to challenge: Myth #1: There is a right way to feel in every situation If anything is certain, it’s that there’s always more than one way to view a situation.
