Stop Overreacting - Calm Your Emotions - Judith P. Siegel, Ph.D., LCSW. This show is 90 minutes not 21 minutes. Do you or does someone you care about have difficulty coping with rejection or criticism? Are you angry? Do you lash out at others when stressed? Do you often regret things you say or do in the heat of emotion? Do you assume the worst about people or situations? Do you withdraw when things get emotionally overwhelming? "Stop Overreacting" is an incredibly well-written book that will teach you skills and strategies to effectively calm your emotions and your emotional reactions. It is a book that is written in such a way that it is not jargon-laden and is quite readable and understandable for everyone. This book teaches its readers important skills for coping with intense and overwhelming emotions without overreacting, withdrawing, lashing out or raging. Everyone knows what it’s like to overreact. It is one of the most common factors that lead to unnecessary and destructive conflict escalation within our relationships with partners, family members, friends and colleagues, and yet it can be one of the most difficult obstacles to overcome. In addition to enhancing the stress of an already emotional situation, it can leave us feeling ashamed, guilty and out of control. In her new book, Stop Overreacting, Dr. Judith Siegel applies cutting edge research and more than thirty years of clinical practice experience to present the key concepts to understanding and overcoming intense emotional reactions to life’s less than ideal situations, specifically in the realms of relationships, family and the workplace. Based on new research that is changing the way therapists view emotional regulation, Dr. Siegel identifies the common factors that contribute to overreaction and then provides the reader with approachable, applicable skills for understanding and gaining control over them in order to reduce overreaction and improve relationships with both the self and others.
