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 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.

To reinforce the effectiveness of each tool, the workbook includes guided imagery exercises, opportunities to create positive self-statements, and space for personal reflections after practicing each tool. In addition, the workbook points readers to the matching audio recordings to facilitate their practice of the exercises as they go through the workbook. Both the tools and the written and audio exercises provide a gentle and reliable program that leads to calm emotions, resilience, and well-being.
