A no-nonsense and helpful guide on how to cope with a slew of mental-health issues that are hellbent on ruining the lives of millions of people worldwide.

Our brains do their best to help us out, but every so often they can be real assholes—having melt downs, getting addicted to things, or shutting down completely at the worst possible moments. Your brain knows it’s not good to do these things, but it can’t help it sometimes—especially if it’s obsessing about trauma it can’t overcome. That’s where this life-changing book comes in.

With humor, patience, science, and lots of good-ole swearing, Dr. Faith explains what’s going on in your skull, and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life, and to deal effectively with old, or newly acquired, traumas (particularly post-traumatic stress disorder).

Reviews:

“As a passionate professor, counselor, and follower of neuroscience research, I strongly recommendUnfuck Your Brain: Using Science to Get Over Anxiety, Depression, Anger, Freak-outs, and Triggers. Dr. Harper’s writing style definitely held my attention and made me laugh many times while still informing me about some complicated neuroscience and health related topics. This book is a wonderful change from all the dry, dull, writing I usually read on a daily basis. I encourage everyone dealing with any of these issues or who is interested in becoming updated in the recent neuroscience research to purchase a copy and start reading it today.” —Allen Novian, PhD, LMFT, LPC-S, Adjunct Professor at St. Mary’s University
