Praise for Guy Winch and his Work
“Dr. Guy Winch’s practical, clever and clear-headed book offers proven remedies for the myriad pains of daily life. Timely application will prevent small and medium-size emotional ills from becoming bigger ones—and that’s just what the psychotherapist ordered.”
—Jeanne Safer, PhD, author of Cain’s Legacy: Liberating Siblings from a Lifetime of Rage, Shame, Secrecy, and Regret

"The advice Winch offers in this refreshingly useful book is both practical and practicable -- down-to-earth techniques that really can bring relief when things feel like they're falling apart."
—Anneli Rufus, author of The Big Book of Low Self-Esteem
"[An] outstanding work...This smart tome is a valuable addition to the self-help oeuvre."
—Publishers Weekly

“Excellent for all disgruntled souls out there.”
—Library Journal
“Winch's book was not only helpful; it was positively entertaining.  His stories are memorable as well as hysterically funny.”
—Psychology Today
“You should run, not walk, to the closest bookstore and grab a copy of The Squeaky Wheel. Not only do I recommend this book but I would like to see it be required reading for every adult and near adult on the planet.”
—The Self Improvement Blog

Présentation de l'éditeur

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, Ph.D., 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 book 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.

Prescriptive, programmatic, and unique, this first-aid kit for battered emotions will appeal to readers of Unstuck by James S. Gordon and Self-Compassion by Kristin Neff.

First aid for the psyche 27 mars 2014
Par Deb - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a therapist, I'm constantly looking out for helpful resources for clients. This book has quickly been added to my list. It so clearly explores the seven most common--and inevitable, if you're human!--psychological injuries and then provides specific "first aid" treatments for each:

1. Rejection--The emotional cuts and scrapes of daily life
Rejections can inflict four distinct emotional wounds, each of which might require some from of emotional first aid: lingering visceral pain, anger and aggressive urges, harm to self-esteem, and damage to feeling that we belong. (p. 17)
* Argue with self-criticism
* Revive your self-worth
* Replenish feelings of social connection
* Desensitize yourself

2. Loneliness--Relationship muscle weakens
Loneliness makes us constantly on guard, prepared for the disappointment and rejection we are sure will come. As a result, we miss opportunities to make social connections and behave in ways that push others away. (p. 53)
* Remove your negatively tinted glasses
* Identify your self-defeating behaviors
* Take on the other person's perspective
* Deepen your emotional bonds
* Create opportunities for social connection
* Adopt a best friend

3. Loss and Trauma--Walking on broken bones
Loss and trauma create four psychological wounds. They cause overwhelming emotional pain, they undermine our basic sense of identity and the roles we play in life, they destabilize our belief systems and our understanding of the world, and they challenge our ability to remain present and engaged in our most important relationships. (p. 85)
* Soothe your emotional pain your way
* Recover lost aspects of your self
* Find meaning in tragedy

4. Guilt--The poison in our system
Guilt usually serves an important function by alerting us to when we might have harmed another person or when any actions we're considering might do so. However, if our offense is serious or if we've already made significant efforts to apologize to a person we harmed or atone for our actions in other ways and our guilt remains excessive, or if we suffer from substantial survivor guilt, or separation and disloyalty guilt, emotional first aid is indeed necessary. (p. 119)
* Learn the recipe for an effective apology
* Forgive yourself
* Reengage in life

5. Rumination--Picking at emotional scabs
In order to break the self-reinforcing nature of ruminative thoughts and allow our wounds to heal, we must interrupt the cycle of rumination once it gets triggered, and we should weaken the urge to ruminate at the source by diminishing the intensity of the feelings that fuel it. We must also make efforts to monitor our relationships and to ease the emotional burden we might be placing on loved ones. (p. 154)
* Change your perspective
* Reframe the anger
* Go easy on your friends

6. Failure--Emotional chest colds become psychological pneumonias
When we fail repeatedly or when we respond to failures in ways that set back our confidence, our self-esteem, and our chances of future success, we run the risk of allowing our emotional chest cold to turn into psychological pneumonia. Because much of the anxiety associated with failures can build upon itself, it is best to be prudent and apply psychological first aid treatment as soon as possible after meaningful or bothersome failures occur. (p. 189)
* Get support and get real
* Focus on factors in your control
* Take responsibility and own the fear
* Distract yourself from performance pressure distractions

7. Low Self-Esteem--Weak emotional immune systems
Having low self-esteem weakens our emotional immune systems and inflicts three kinds of psychological wounds: it makes us more vulnerable to psychological injuries, it makes us dismissive of positive feedback and resistant to emotional nutrients, and it makes us feel unassertive and disempowered. (p. 232)
* Adopt self-compassion and silence the critical voices in your head
* Identify your strengths and affirm them
* Increase your tolerance for compliments
* Increase your personal empowerment
* Improve your self-control

Think of this book as first aid for the psyche. And, use as needed until symptoms subside.

So good my puppy ate it 7 août 2013
Par Irene Conlan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Guy Winch has done it again. He has written a book so practical, so down to earth and so powerful that it makes you want to slap your forehead and ask, "Why didn't I think of that?" His first book, "The Squeaky Wheel: taught us how to complain in a way that helped us get what we wanted or needed and ruffled as few feathers as possible in the process. Now he teaches us how to deal with the psychological cuts and bruises that most of us have to deal with on a daily basis. They aren't severe enough to require professional attention but they still hurt and need healing. He walks us through a number of minor psychological injuries, namely loneliness, loss and trauma, guilt, rumination, failure and low self esteem. For each of these he gives the type of wound sustained and offers a number of treatments that should give relief. He also provides exercises that help you render the treatment effectively. Further he makes it very clear if and when you need to seek professional help.

It is written with "real life" examples to demonstrate what he's writing about and it is sprinkled with humor to make it fun to read.

The only person who should not read this book is one who has a perfect life and never experiences a setback of any kind. (If you know of one, have them call me. I'd love to meet him or her).

This book is so good I found my puppy munching away on the cover and ready to devour the pages. It was his first, and hopefully last, reading adventure.

Format: Format Kindle
This is a fantastically practical and insightful book for dealing with the everyday stings that we all experience. It's chock full of relatable stories as well as interesting thought experiments that will help you heal when you've experienced situations like rejection, failure, and loss. Read this book once now and then keep it as a reference book for when life strikes and you need to dip back into it for guidance, comfort, and getting clarity on difficult situations and emotions.

Emotional First Aid by Guy Winch, PhD 15 septembre 2013
Par SusiQ - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Simple but concrete solutions to complex problems? A virtual medicine chest to open and use what's inside to heal our woes? The answer is yes. In Guy Winch's new book, Emotional First Aid, he defines what he calls "everyday psychological inquires" and how a person, the average individual, can understand and deal with the curve balls life throws at us. With the caveat that if your pain is so severe that you want to do harm to yourself or worse that professional intervention should be sought, the chapters outline how to determine what is wrong and then how to fix it. If you are lonely or have been rejected or feel like you are a failure, Dr. Winch gives the reader a formula to heal yourself. From written exercises to making apologies or self-forgiveness, the detailed prescriptions are sensible and clear. We all have our issues and Emotional First Aid is a handbook everyone should own.

Amazing Book 25 juillet 2013
Par Sam B. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The most practical and well written psychology book I've ever read! Gives great practical insight and advice and I'm going to get all the people I care about to read it - we will all have happier lives. I've cut back drastically on ruminating and coming down on myself after understanding not only that it was hurting me but how it was hurting me - to what extent was I actually wounding myself. The exercises help a lot plus it's easy and fun reading! Every family should have a copy of this book in their medicine cabinet.
