Summary: Expert advice on the neuroscience of trauma and practical exercises for recovery, written for lay readers. Our brains do their best to help us out, but every so often they can be real assholes—having melt downs, getting addicted to things, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. Your brain knows it’s not good to do these things, but it can’t help it sometimes—especially if it’s obsessing about trauma it can’t overcome. That’s where this life-changing book comes in. With humor, patience, science, and lots of good-ole swearing, Dr. Faith explains what’s going on in your skull, and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life, and to deal effectively with old, or newly acquired, traumas (particularly post-traumatic stress disorder).
