Loriann Oberlin has written eleven non-fiction books and hundreds of articles for consumer publications. In recent years, she has been interviewed by First for Women, Buzzfeed, Fatherly, as well as New Hampshire NPR and Sirius XM Radio. Many of the books she has written, or those she recommends, can provide supportive self-help.

I encourage reading between sessions and practicing new communication and interpersonal skills. Several resources here reinforce how to work with your thoughts and challenge yourself to new behaviors, using CBT. If your physician allows, exercise remains a great complement to mental health therapy. It helps to lessen anxiety and anger, improve mood, confidence, and self-esteem. Plus, it’s just good for your physical health as well.

Especially as we face the challenges of social distancing, children learning from home, and everyone with one another 24/7 in light of the coronavirus concerns, these resources may be more important than ever. Call some of them sanity savers, if you will.

” I bought Overcoming Passive-Aggression because I couldn’t understand why some people acted a certain way, why no one else saw their behaviors as a problem, but I knew that their actions felt like an offense. This book validated my feelings and showed me how to deal with the underlying problem, not actions that came from it. This is a solid book for untangling the emotional mess when you’re getting mixed signals from someone.” — reader frustrated from dealing with difficult people
