A protocol of easy-to-use tools that can be applied when readers experience difficult-to-manage emotions.

Emotional flooding―being overwhelmed by feelings―happens in response to stress, anxiety, and life’s challenges. In this client-orientated accompaniment to Affect Regulation Toolbox, Carolyn Daitch and Lissah Lorberbaum present skills and tools on how to dial down reactivity, practice mindfulness, and focus positively on the future. Written to conquer a broad range of emotional challenges in easily accessibly language, this book is intended to help clients improve the quality of their everyday lives.

The workbook is split into two parts. Part I helps the reader understand when and why emotional flooding occurs. Using vivid stories and examples of others’ triggering situations helps the reader better understand their own triggers, and how to cope with them. Part II provides instructions for “daily stress inoculations,” a daily practice for relaxing and lowering baseline levels of emotional reactivity. The STOP Solution is introduced as a way of learning how to stop or lessen feeling emotionally overwhelmed. STOP stands for Scanning thoughts, feelings, and sensations, Taking a time-out, Overcoming Initial Flooding, and Putting tools into practice.

Throughout the workbook, readers will find guided imagery exercises, opportunities for journaling and reflection, mindfulness practices, and matching audio exercises on the accompanying CD. A complimentary companion app (for information, visit: www.bitly.com/RoadToCalmApp) also enhances readers’ ability to take these exercises on the go. The result of this gentle and reliable program is resilience, well-being, and freedom from the emotional patterns that create suffering and damage relationships.

Review:

“[A] clear, well structured, and organized guide . . . . The authors help clients to personalize the techniques by providing advice, charts, and surveys so that they can learn about their unique ways of expressing runaway emotions. . . . It is obvious that experienced clinicians have created this [STOP solution] method, which addresses the nuance of emotion associated with different problems. . . . We highly recommend this workbook, which offers clients tangible techniques to follow, while also indirectly utilizing suggestion and trance.”
- The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter

“[A] wonderful resource . . . . The workbook has lots of space for writing so you can deeply and thoughtfully put these tools into action. . . . The audio tracks are very well done. Daitch talks you through each step while relaxing music plays. . . . [E]xtremely well-thought-out and structured . . . [A]n excellent resource for anyone dealing with anxiety and all that goes with distress.”
- PsychCentral

“The authors thoughtfully teach readers to first understand where feelings of craziness come from and then present paths to sanity. They provide particular detail on aspects of ‘emotional flooding’ and the road to self-regulation. An excellent choice for those who are beset by stress and fear.”
- Library Journal

“The user-friendly Road to Calm Workbook is written so anyone reading it can understand it. . . . Goals don’t seem so out of reach when working with the book, which emphasizes that 28 days makes a habit. This is about you. Reclaim you. Love you. This book could help.”
- Energy Times

“[T]here is a wealth of information in this book . . . . [A] worthwhile manual of helpful techniques.”
- Metapsychology Online Reviews

“What if there was a way you could inoculate against the daily stresses of life? Carolyn Daitch and Lissah Lorberbaum have just given us the next best thing. In The Road to Calm Workbook, they help you understand when and why emotional overwhelm occurs and give instructions for concrete, practical, easy-to-use practices that anyone can use to relax and lower their baseline levels of emotional reactivity. Whether you are a therapist looking for powerful tools that your patients can use between sessions, or an individual working to manage your own stresses and emotions, this book is an essential resource.”
- Ruth Buczynski, PhD, licensed psychologist, president of The National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine

“Of all the poignant scenes of human interactions, one of the most universal challenges is emotional flooding and the relational damage it causes. Since few of us are exempt, we all need a guide―and The Road to Calm Workbook is just that. With elegant and detailed exercises, this manual will help you STOP emotional flooding. And if you are a clinician, your clients can use it too. We recommend it to everyone as an essential tool to keep handy. You never know when you will be triggered!”
- Harville Hendrix, PhD and Helen LaKelly Hunt, PhD, co-creators of Imago Relationship Therapy and authors of Getting the Love You Want and Making Marriage Simple

“There are two big strengths to the book. The first is the audio sessions which will give people a chance to experience and work with exercises while hearing Carol’s voice. . . . They can listen and experience a change in their symptoms and later do the exercises on their own. The second strength is the way the book helps readers make connections between their symptoms and behaviors in a way that is simultaneously non-threatening and empowering. . . . giving people hope and then showing them a way out of the pain.”
- Ryan Nagy
