With concrete, easy-to-use exercises supported by cutting edge science that will help you build resilience and develop strategies to cope with challenging emotions, as well as relatable anecdotes and a refreshing dose of humour, you can learn to promote your emotional recovery from life’s setbacks.

Dr Guy Winch is a licensed psychologist and author. He received a PhD in Clinical Psychology from New York University in 1991 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in family and couples therapy at NYU Medical Center. His first book, The Squeaky Wheel, has been translated into six languages. In between, he built a private practice in New York City, started The Squeaky Wheel Blog on PsychologyToday.com and even dabbled in stand-up comedy.

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, guilt 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 humour 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.

USD $10.99

Too many men are suffering with their emotional health issues in silence, and male suicide rates are high. Men are affected by everyday stress, high workloads, anxiety and depression, loss of confidence or identity, relationship breakdowns, family disruption, addictions and trauma — just the same as women. But society has placed a stigma on men’s mental health. Men have found it hard to reach out in the past because of a sense of shame that comes from our society. But men are changing. They are re-defining what it is to be ‘strong’, and are more open to understanding their emotions and reaching out for help.

The Changing Man: A Mental Health Guide explores a range of issues affecting men’s emotional health and wellbeing, and provides a collection of tried and tested tools to ensure no man suffers in silence again.
