Read This Definite Guide to Resolving Emotional Issues

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Bobby Kushner / April 12, 2018

GUELPH, ONT. – Therapists suggest counseling to those failing to resolve emotional issues. However, a Canadian writer suggests overcoming these issues yourself and using his handbook “Emotional Regulation” to do it.

“Emotional Regulation” teaches tangible skills for those unskilled in detecting their emotional arousal or inexperienced in knowing when to express or regulate their emotions.

The skills taught are useful for resolving stressful life events and high-risk behaviors: separation, anger, indulging in negative relationships, emotional flatness and indiscriminate sexual behavior.

The handbook is based on dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), a behavioral therapy developed by Marsha Linehan in the 1980’s.

Canadian public relations and screen writer, Bobby Kushner wrote the handbook to focus more on the practice of DBT skills through mental visualizations.

For example, it instructs readers to mentally visualize themselves using the DBT skills in specific problem situations then urges them to rehearse daily those mental visualizations until the visualized reactions become instinctive responses in those situations.

“I wanted to stress this point throughout the handbook,” Kushner says. “because DBT skills will be nonexistent during crisis if readers attempt using them when only in crisis.”

Kushner also created the 38-page handbook to be a free therapy alternative to the many counseling programs and DBT guides failing to meet expectations.

Most counseling sessions lack meaningful results, Kushner says. “Most result in open ended discussions about one’s life not in tangible solutions to issues.” 

The majority of DBT guides are misleading interpretations of the original manual by Marsha Linehan, Kushner says. “Take deep breaths. Count to 10 before reacting. Keep yourself busy when down. These cliches are often suggested by counseling programs and DBT guides as primary solutions to problems. What a disservice to those in crisis!”

Currently, the ebook version of “Emotional Regulation” is available free of cost on Bobby Kushner’s website www.bobbykushner.com. 

Bobby Kushner is a public relations and screenplay writer. For five years, he has studied multiple manuals on human relations and clinical psychology.

Kushner also has written a handbook called “Technical Writing” and is an advocate for secondary and post-secondary curricula being self contained.

“Secondary and higher education programs need to be complete in themselves for acquiring skills,” Kushner said. “not just a means for learning skills elsewhere.”

The 34-year-old writer currently lives in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

A Canadian Writer Offers a Free English Writing Manual to Those in Need

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
By Bobby Kushner / April 2, 2018


GUELPH, ONT. – Students and adult learners won’t need to depend on convoluted writing manuals to learn English grammar and composition concepts. The handbook “Technical Writing” better explains how those concepts work.

“Technical Writing” simplifies the concepts of English grammar and composition.

Explanations are self-contained, so guidance from teachers and other manuals are not required to understand the content.

Also readers are never at a loss for how writing concepts fit together because the handbook presents composition concepts first and grammar ones last.

Canadian public relations and screen writer, Bobby Kushner wrote the handbook after observing most traditional writing manuals were inappropriate for learning English grammar and composition.

“The majority of writing manuals are inadequate for learning these concepts,” Kushner says. “because most times, they’re actually style guides for usage not instructional manuals for learning those concepts.

“However, many educators recommend these styles guides to students as revered manuals for learning English writing when these guides aren’t for this purpose.”

Currently, the ebook version of “Technical Writing” is available free of cost on Bobby Kushner’s website www.bobbykushner.com

Kushner says, “I wanted this information to be free to those struggling to write clearly and concisely.”

Bobby Kushner is a public relations and screenplay writer. For 13 years, he has studied multiple manuals on technical writing, journalism and literature.

Kushner also has written a handbook called “Emotional Regulation” and is an advocate for secondary and post-secondary curricula being self contained.

“Secondary and higher education programs need to be complete in themselves for acquiring skills,” Kushner said. “not just a means for learning skills elsewhere.”

The 34-year-old writer currently lives in Guelph, Ontario, Canada

High-risk Behaviors Linked to Attention Deficit Disorder


By Bobby Kushner / November 25, 2016

GUELPH, ONT. – Feeling overwhelmed by ever-growing responsibilities at home, sudden changes at work and lack of sleep – Thomas Jones destroyed everything in his home.

When police arrived at his residence, he looked at his wife.

“I want the police to kill me,” Jones said before grabbing a replica gun, charging out the door and pointing it at police.

Thomas Jones, 41, was arrested then taken to a psychiatric hospital in Guelph.

“When overwhelmed, I have sometimes reacted this way since a 12-year-old boy,” Jones says.

A growing number of people, admitted to psychiatric hospitals for high-risk behaviors, are being diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) instead of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.

“When someone’s not hearing voices, doesn’t have racing thoughts and isn’t awake for days – a more logical explanation for these behaviors is ADD,” Dr. Shuang Xu says, a psychiatrist at Homewood Health Centre. “especially if these individuals struggled with impulsive behaviors since childhood.”

According to information from the Canadian Mental Health Association, impulsive behaviors begin in childhood for ADD patients. But for schizophrenic and bipolar disorder patients, they begin in adulthood.

Dr. Xu explained, ADD is often difficult to diagnose in adults because most patients aren’t forthcoming about their struggle with impulsive behaviors during childhood.

“This is frequently why many adults with ADD are misdiagnosed as being bipolar or schizophrenic,” Dr. Xu says.

“Uncontrolled anger, mood shifts and other impulsive behaviors are also key traits in biopolar disorder and schizophrenia, not just ADD.”

Jones is learning to cope with his disorder by attending dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) programs at Homewood Health Centre.

He is also prescribed Concerta, a stimulant used for treating ADD.

“An uncle of mine told me. I’ll live a hard life,” Jones says. “if I continue destroying the things I’ve worked very hard to get when overwhelmed.”
