"We lash out in anger. We cry and retreat. We find ourselves paralyzed. Our bodies respond powerfully to triggers, often before our minds catch up to make sense of a situation. This book helps us learn to manage our immediate reactions in these difficult moments. It also goes much deeper to help us understand why we are affected by certain things and the powerful lessons we can learn from these instinctive responses to move towards healing. Bestselling author and psychologist David Richo explains the brain science behind our immediate reactions and discusses fear, anger, sadness, and relationship triggers in depth. When we are triggered, he writes that "we are being bullied by our own unfinished business." By looking deeply at the roots of what provokes us, Richo invites readers to cultivate our inner resources and develop practices to find more peace"-- Provided by publisher.
