Nobody gets through life without feeling stress. The question is, What do you do when you feel it? How do you deal with anger, anxiety, depression, and a host of other negative emotions?
Do your emotions lead to bad behavior? Is bad behavior leading to some negative consequences in your life?
Take Control draws on twenty-three years of experience working with adolescents and adults whose lives had become involved in criminal behavior and drug addiction, and who had developed mental health issues and emotional problems. This book will show you how to take back control of your life by learning how to overcome difficult emotions (including stress), replace problem behavior with new behavior, overcome addictions, and change your negative thinking. Problems are only problems needing to be solved. How you think about those problems determines how you will feel.
Take Control teaches you how to take control over these areas of your life. In addition to the psychological principles behind emotions and behavior change, there are several chapters dedicated to what the Bible has to say about emotions, thinking, and making changes in problem behavior.
The book began as a Manage Your Emotions—Manage Your Life presentation done for 250 juvenile probation officers in Las Vegas, Nevada. The class was well received and had a positive impact in the lives of many people who attended the classes. I hope this book does the same for you.
