A Conversation About Emotional Fitness.
The focus for psychotherapist Janice Berger, as she discusses emotional fitness with Geraint Wyn Davies, is to demonstrate how much we greatly benefit our lives and our children's lives when we are clear about how our emotional system is actually meant to work.
This audiobook demonstrates that how we deal with our feelings is the major key to lasting emotional well-being. It illustrates the way in which we can use our most difficult feelings to understand how they are messing up our current relationships and how we can change that.
The author draws from her more than 40 years of experience working with adults suffering from unresolved trauma to reveal and describe what she calls our natural emotional healing power. The discussion and anecdotes show how we gain access to this nature-given asset and how we heal the raw wounds that are causing old, unfinished feelings to erupt, distort, and damage our current relationships and situations. For many people, this is a completely new way of viewing their lives.
In accessing and experiencing this emotional healing power we all possess, individuals find a new way of understanding themselves and relating to others. Although challenging at times, this simple process brings welcome relief to those who are tired of using mental exercises as they try to heal emotional pain. Individuals come to appreciate the impact of their trauma, great or small, and they replace destructive patterns such as debilitating self-blame and blame of others with understanding and compassion for themselves and empathy for others.
The audiobook can be used in many different ways. Whether listening to the entire audiobook or delving into topics that particularly resonate with the individual, it is a guide to enjoying a more peaceful, authentic, and vibrant life.
