Highly practical and accessible, this unique book gives therapists powerful tools for helping patients learn to cope with feared or avoided emotional experiences. The book presents a menu of effective intervention options—including schema modification, stress management, acceptance, mindfulness, self-compassion, cognitive restructuring, and other techniques—and describes how to select the best ones for particular patients or situations. Provided are sample questions to pose to patients, specific interventions to use, suggested homework assignments, illustrative examples and sample dialogues, and troubleshooting tips. In a large-size format for easy photocopying, the volume is packed with over 65 reproducible handouts and forms.


"This book is a unique contribution to the literature; one that is particularly important given the pervasiveness of emotion regulation problems across multiple disorders. I highly recommend it."
-Marsha M. Linehan, PhD, ABPP, Professor and Director, Behavioral Research and Training Clinics, University of Washington

"Thank you, Leahy, Tirch, and Napolitano, for providing clinicians everywhere with a systematic means for helping clients develop emotion regulation skills. Most clients present with difficulties in managing their emotions, but there is a startling lack of useful materials to guide therapists. This invaluable book fills the gap, and is sure to be a resource that clinicians will reach for frequently as they develop treatment plans, adjust therapy programs during the course of treatment, and teach clients skills to use in their everyday lives. The book is complete with structured exercises, guidelines for treatment, and strategies for overcoming difficulties that routinely arise in-session."
-Dean McKay, PhD, ABPP, Department of Psychology, Fordham University
