From an expert in traumatic stress disorders, HIJACKED BY YOUR BRAIN reveals a groundbreaking way to help our brains deal with the stress of life. Filing a gap on shelf, this book explains what's happening in the brain when the emotions take over, and it shows how a simple, practical approach to focusing the mind can provide the solution when all the coping skills in the world don't help. We can adjust the part of the brain that triggers an alarm state so that it reacts the way we want it to. We can't stop stress, but we can control the effect stress has on us.
