You know those days when you just can't even? When everything is haywire and everyone, including yourself, seems to be against you? Your to-do list is a mile long; your kid is sick, traffic sucks, and you just spilled coffee all over yourself as you were about to walk out the door? How do you cope? We guess you could say "f--k it" and go back to bed with a bottle of whiskey at 10 a.m., but check out these more sustainable and helpful alternatives by Dr. Faith first.This is the first book of its kind to break down coping skills by type of situation. Includes skills from CBT, DBT, ACT, positive psychology, mindfulness-based stress reduction, somatic experiencing, Jungian therapy, and more.

Profanity is not profundity.
Not for me I'm afraid. I found the author's constant coarseness and flippancy when dealing with subject matter that cries out for serious treatment, jarring and irritating. I know she's probably trying to make the subject matter "accessible", but to me, the joke fell flat. Especially when such flippancy is combined with aching politically-correctness.
It's only fair to say that there is good information on mental techniques in here, but each one is passed over briefly and without explanation in favor of another outburst of cussing.
I'm sure some people will get a lot out of this, and good on them. But I'm going elsewhere.
