Publisher's Summary

First aid for failure...
Although we have bandages for cuts, chicken soup for colds, and ice packs for bruises, most of us have no idea how to treat day-to-day emotional injuries such as failure, rejection, and loss. But, as Guy Winch, PhD, points out, these kinds of emotional injuries often get worse when left untreated and can significantly impact our quality of life. In this fascinating and highly practical audiobook he provides the emotional first aid treatments we have been lacking.
Explaining the long-term fallout that can result from seemingly minor emotional and psychological injuries, Dr. Winch offers concrete, easy-to-use exercises backed up by hard cutting-edge science to aid in recovery. He uses relatable anecdotes about real patients he has treated over the years and often gives us a much needed dose of humor as well.

Better than years of therapy

This book is really terrific. I hesitated to buy it at first because his delivery. is. so. choppy. and. I. thought. it. would. drive. me. nuts. but his voice is surprisingly well modulated and the parts where he quotes his clients are often hilarious.
I listened to it all the way through but its the type of book you can listen to many times. I would definitely buy his other book if audible ever carries it.

I highly recommend this!

 we sustain more injuries to our psychological health (often multiple times daily) yet our physical health is so much more important than our psychological health. 
this book looks at the most common assaults on our psychological well-being and gives us ways to counter/stop their influence on our lives.
the author is careful to point out in this book the times when his recommendations don't seem to work for you and it would be crucial to seek professional in person help.
