dialectical behavior therapy.
group setting. like others mentioned helping you to observe, understand and better control your emotions. there's the emotional mind and rational mind. you need to recognize your emtions but learn how to better respond to them.
i'm in it now, but it's not really the way it's supposed to be taught. you're supposed to get into really deep stuff, but our group keeps it pretty surface...what happened during the week etc. not childhood stuff.
but i was totally against going and now that i'm in it, i think it's ok. i stay in it cuz i like a couple people in the group and it's good stability for me.
it's worth a try. good luck. let us know what you think.
