Review quote

"In "Mind and Emotions", Matthew McKay, Patrick Fanning, and Patricia Zurita Ona provide invaluable information for people experiencing difficulties regulating their emotions. Not only will readers learn about the factors contributing to their ongoing pain, but they'll also learn practical skills for improving their ability to manage these intense emotions. I love the fact that these authors were able to reflect real-life psychotherapy by taking an eclectic approach to the treatment of emotion dysregulation." --Sheri Van Dijk, MSW, RSW, psychotherapist in Ontario, Canada, and author of "The Dialectical Behavior Therapy Skills Workbook for Bipolar Disorder, Don't Let Your Emotions Run Your Life for Teens, "and "The Bipolar Workbook for Teens""Mind and Emotions offers a clear and practical entry into the complex and often confusing world of emotions and emotional pain. The authors are experts in the field of mental health and psychotherapy, and it shows in this work.
