Book DescriptionIf you have ever been told that you're `too sensitive'; if you've ever felt overwhelmed by your emotions - as if they're controlling you and you can't seem to dial them back; if you've ever reacted in a way that you've later regretted, but you simply couldn't stop yourself at the time; or if you simply struggle to understand why you're feeling the way you are, then this is the book you've been waiting for. Drawing on her years of experience as a clinical psychologist, Dr Zurita Ona provides a clear and simple roadmap for every `super-feeler' on how to avoid being hijacked by your emotions. Using the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as aspects of positive psychology, you will learn how to distinguish between emotion-based behaviour and values-based behaviour so that you can step back from an uncontrolled emotional response and instead choose a more appropriate one. The result is an effective way to combat the feelings of loneliness and fear of abandonment so many super-feelers experience, as you learn to build and maintain strong healthy relationships, and to look within to identify sources of pain and struggle rather than placing outward blame. Along the way, you will become adept at skills such as self-acceptance, forgiveness, compassion, mindfulness, and conflict resolution. In the end, super-feelers will discover the truth that they are more than their emotions, and that no matter how intense the situation, they can always choose to act in a way that is consistent with their personal values, in order to experience fulfilling, loving and caring relationships.
Editorial ReviewZurita Ona provides a veritable treasure chest of strategies you can use to make your emotions work for you, rather than against you. It isn't a bad thing to be a 'super-feeler', it is a good thing! I highly recommend this wonderful step by step program to help you develop a new level of emotional intelligence! - Kirk Strosahl Ph.D., author of The Mindfulness and Acceptance Workbook for Depression "At last: a truly practical book for 'super-feelers' on how to effectively handle overwhelming emotions. Packed full of great advice and effective strategies for taking the impact out of painful feelings and acting effectively in the face of life's challenges." - Russ Harris, author of The Happiness Trap "Escaping the Emotional Roller Coaster is a precious tool for anyone struggling with making sense of emotions and expressing them in a way that is both coherent with the current situation and pursuing life's most cherished dreams." - Dr. D.J. Moran, founder of the MidAmerican Psychological Institute "For those struggling with their emotional roller coaster, and especially those who have been convinced that they are broken, this is an extraordinary guide to learn and practice all the necessary tools to tame the emotional machinery, build a life worth living, and embrace everything that comes with it." - Carolina Principi, Coordinator of the DBT Program for Adolescents, Foro Foundation, Buenos Aires "Having intense emotions makes it difficult to act effectively in the moment. Dr. Z. offers a vast array of practical tools and strategies to achieve a life worth living even with these roller-coaster emotions." - Christophe Deval, M.S.C., author, therapist, talent development director at KPMG in Paris, France "Rarely, have I read a book that has provided me with true insights as to how one thinks, feels as a super-feeler and what to do about it. Reading Dr. Z.'s book gave me hope. If you read her book, you know that you are not alone and that there is help for you." - Susan Gurley, Executive Director of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America "Escaping the Emotional Roller Coaster is a precious tool for anyone struggling with making sense of emotions and expressing them in a way that is both coherent with the current situation and pursuing life's most cherished dreams." - Michel A. Reyes Ortega, Ph.D., Director, DBT Outpatient Clinic, CBS & Therapy Institute, Mexico City "This pithy, compassionate, and well-written book offers a gateway to self-understanding and healthy emotion-regulation. It's the sort of book I wish someone had handed me 20 years ago." - Russell Kolts, Ph.D., author and Professor of Psychology, Eastern Washington University "An ACT book that I really enjoyed reading. Filled with humor and wisdom, I am sure that this text will give super feelers a better understanding of what is going on and what to do about it when their emotional switch gets turned on." - Nic Hooper, Ph.D., Lecturer, University of the West of England, author of Research Journey of ACT
