Managing the Emotional Rollercoaster of Adulthood

Book Review: The Emotional Toolkit - Seven Power-Skills to Nail Your Bad Feelings, by Darlene Mininni, Ph.D., St. Martin's Press. Managing emotion has never been a part of school curriculum, nor has it been a regular part of parenting. Parents learn about managing emotion from their parents in a disorganized anecdotal fashion teased out by trial and error. A particularly adverturous child may have many opportunities for learning, while a child that is shy and/or particularly compliant has relatively few. The family style of emotion management is based on a coping method passed on informally from generation to generation by word of mouth. Our modern culture lacks the traditional rites of passage that help ensure we learn the skills of adulthood. Yet emotion management is the single most important skill that determines our social and economic success and ability to maintain our mental health. As a psychotherapist over the past 28 years, I have found that a major part of what I do is educating people on what their emotions mean and how to cope with them. I recently had the good fortune of obtaining a copy of Dr. Darlene Mininni's book, The Emotional Tookit. This book is well organized and chock full of most every tool I can think of that will prepare the average person for managing the emotional rollercoaster of adulthood in a complicated world. Although written particularly for women using many real life examples from the author's clinical experience, the skills are just as applicable to men and simple enough to be incorporated in a pre-teen training curriculum. The skills are described in an easy to understand way with many examples of how they can be applied in situations we are all familar with. I greatly appreciate this book and will recommend it to my clients.

The Emotional Toolkit, an essential tool for all women

For years I have bottled up my emotions, afraid to feel them or been told I wasn't supposed to feel a certain way. As a result, I often experienced physical ailments. After reading Dr. Mininni's toolkit, I realized that I am better able to read my body's reaction and understand the feelings. By bringing them to the surface I now know what tools are needed to handle them. The Emotional Toolkit is a must read for all women, particularly young adults who can hold on to this toolkit as they emerge into well rounded young women.

This book has changed my life!

This is the best self-help book I ever read. It helped me understand my feelings in a completely new way. When I'm in a bad mood, I know how to get rid of it quickly. It's amazing. Reading her book is like listening to an incredibly smart and helpful girlfriend. I saw Dr. Mininni speak last week, and was mesmerized. She's brilliant, but knows how to talk to everyday women, because she is one. I just ordered copies of the book as gifts for my friends and family. Get this book, and you won't be disappointed.

And you won't need a Bandaid

Mininni's new book is a breath of fresh air in the self-help world. A book of action that offers women a way to self-empower themselves in dealing with their emotions. The tools in the toolkit are what tools should be: simple to use and useful. You won't ever have to worry about needing a Bandaid again.

what a great book!!

Very helpful and practical - provides useable and useful actions and concrete things to do! Very worthwhile
