Many people suffer from extreme emotions with around 2% of people being diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder.

· Different ways of coping with overwhelming emotions

Heal the Body, Heal the Mind

Susanne Babbel, Marti Glenn
Authors:
Susanne Babbel, Marti Glenn

When trauma occurs, the logical mind is hijacked and physiology takes over in an effort to protect you. This leaves an imprint-your body wants to ensure that nothing like that will ever happen again. Being reminded of a traumatic event can trigger these automatic responses, leaving you feeling paralyzed or unable to take action. This book will help you understand why and how unresolved trauma can infiltrate all aspects of your life, including your mind and body-even when you're not aware of its influence.With Heal the Body, Heal the Mind as a gentle guide, you'll learn about different types of trauma, find helpful assessments, and discover how traumatic experiences-even childhood and incidental traumas-can affect all aspects of your life: your relationship choices, the roles you play in them, your sense of pleasure and desire, and how you approach your career, spirituality, and interactions with others.Using the combination of mind-body interventions, cognitive behavioral theories, research, case studies, and exercises woven into each chapter of this warm-hearted, relatable book, you'll begin to address the unresolved trauma held in your body and advance your healing process. So, if you're ready to move beyond the trauma that's been holding you back in your relationships, at work, and in your spiritual practice, this guide will show you how.

Evolution and Contextual Behavioral Science

David S Wilson, Steven C. Hayes, Anthony Biglan
Authors:
David S Wilson, Steven C. Hayes, Anthony Biglan

What do evolutionary science and contextual behavioral science have in common? Edited by David Sloan Wilson and Steven C. Hayes, this groundbreaking book offers a glimpse into the histories of these two schools of thought, and provides a sound rationale for their reintegration.Evolutionary science (ES) provides a unifying theoretical framework for the biological sciences, and is increasingly being applied to the human-related sciences. Meanwhile, contextual behavioral science (CBS) seeks to understand the history and function of human behavior in the context of everyday life where behaviors occur, and to influence behavior in a practical sense. This volume seeks to integrate these two bodies of knowledge that have developed largely independently.In Evolution and Contextual Behavioral Science, two renowned experts in their fields argue why ES and CBS are intrinsically linked, as well as why their reintegration-or, reunification-is essential. The main purpose of this book is to continue to move CBS under the umbrella of ES, and to help evolutionary scientists understand how working alongside contextual behavioral scientists can foster both the development of ES principles and their application to practical situations.Rather than the sequential relationship that is typically imagined between these two schools of thought, this volume envisions a parallel relationship between ES and CBS, where science can best influence positive change in the real world.

Metaphors help clients connect with their values, and often spark the inspiration and motivation needed to make a commitment to change. And while metaphor is central to relational frame theory (RFT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), research now shows its usefulness has an even broader reach.In this book, you'll find a scientific analysis of metaphor based on over thirty years of research, as well as trends in research over the last ten years. The book includes an overview of RFT, how metaphor has influenced the community of behavior analysis, as well as available clinical research on metaphor use.
