Books? - April 23rd 2010, 03:55 AM

Does anybody know of any good self-help books on how to deal with being overly-emotional (i.e. crying, not anger) that don't involve religion?

I've been searching on the internet and I'm coming up dry, but I'm really desperate for some help. Virtual baked goods for anyone who has an idea of one to read!

Hey Jen,

Thanks for posting! I'm not aware of any specific self help books to deal with emotions. There is one book that I have read called "Brilliant: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy". It's a book about CBT, and tells you how changing your thought patterns can completely change your life for the better. It's definitely worth a read.

You can find it here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Brilliant-Co.../dp/0273724908

Hey there Jen,

Well done on deciding that you want to try and help yourself with your emotions, that's really great.

There are a lot of books that have been written concerning emotions and self help. Today, I visited my local bookstore and I found that they have a large self-help section and health section alongside that. If you have a bookstore near by, it may be worthwhile to try and check that out, I'm sure an assistant would be more than happy to find that out for you, too.

I haven't read any self-help books but one of my teacher did recommend an Author called Dorothy Rowe to try and help with my depression and low mood. I read a few pages of one of her books and it seemed to be quite good. Perhaps you could see if you like any of her books?

Take care.

I love self-help books, guilty pleasure i know :/ but go check out the self help section in half price books, that's my favorite because they have all these great books for really cheap.

also, this website is a good place to look
books4selfhelp.com

hope this could help! i wish you all the best!

Re: Books? - April 24th 2010, 06:42 AM

I don't know of any good books but I recently went looking for a book on a subject that I needed. I just went to amazon and typed in a book that someone had suggested to me and then I got a whole list of other books about the subject. From there I read what reviewers had to say about it and made my choice according to that. I have really been enjoying the book and it has helped a lot.

So, if you found a title already you could go onto amazon and look it up and see what people have to say about it and look at some of the suggestions. If you don't have a book you could go to amazon and type in 'self help' and then go from there. If there is a specific type of self help you are looking for it might narrow down the search. I know there are self help books about codependency and what not so the more exact you are about your search the better.

Best of luck,

Jenna

Thanks so much for the responses! I had no idea how many people would have ideas and I really appreciate it

I looked farther into Meg's suggestion, "Don't Let Your Emotions Run Your Life" and ended up purchasing it at Borders yesterday. I read a good 60 pages last night, and so far it seems to be filled with great information and suggestions. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone!
