Publisher's Summary

Work with your triggers to find peace in the painful moments and lasting emotional well-being.

Psychotherapist David Richo examines the science of triggers and our reactions of fear, anger, and sadness. He helps us understand why our bodies respond before our minds have a chance to make sense of a situation. By looking deeply at the roots of what provokes us - the words, actions, and even sensory elements like smell - we find opportunities to understand the origins of our triggers and train our bodies to remain calm in the face of painful memories.

The book offers in-the-moment exercises on how to process difficult emotions and physical manifestations in order to to cultivate the inner resources necessary to deal with recurring memories of trauma. When we are triggered, Richo writes, "we are being bullied by our own unfinished business." Explore what your body's knee-jerk reactions can teach you. Triggers: How We Can Stop Reacting and Start Healing acts as a guide to your body's powerful responses, helping you to remain calm under pressure and discover the key to emotional healing.

Great book!!!

Degrees of anger and fear have hamstrung me in areas of my life for far too long. This book is a useful source that I will continue to go back to for mindfulness of my triggers and the strategies available to defeat them. The only negative I have is I wish there was a PFF outline that accompanied this audio book. There were terms, phrases, and memory aids that I will have to go back and look for in the audio version of this book which will most likely be cumbersome. Again, overall great book!!!

Thorough, insightful & very useful

Many chapters are super insightful
While the audio presenter wasn’t as entertaining it is still worth listening
