Our mind is very susceptible to suggestion and so it could easily create these younger selves and memories under therapy. And there are inhibitory emotions, like shame, guilt and anxiety, which serve to block you from experiencing core emotions. focuses on fostering awareness of the emotional life of the patient as it unfolds in real time in front of the therapist. It was interesting to me how patients were able to sense and name their emotions within their bodies; a tightness in their chest, a heaviness in their stomach, an energy moving up or down; or a lightness in their hearts and instinct to smile, or dance.

The only reason I gave this book a 2/5 rather than a 1/5 is I liked that Hendel made a distinction between small-t "trauma" and big-T "Trauma. The change triangle is interesting, but for someone who has gone through therapy before, reads psychology or has emotional self awarness, the book offers too little news. Essentially, there are three parts of the triangle: core emotions, inhibitory emotions (that prevent you from feeling those core emotions) and defences (which prevent you from feeling core and inhibitory emotions). I strongly believe it is essential reading for everyone and anyone who wants to live an emotionally healthy and fulfilling life. Hendel teaches us that core emotions like joy, anger, sadness, fear, and excitement, are automatic and universal physical experiences; this is firmly grounded in neuroscience.

Like, did you ever just find yourself in a situation that triggered you, to that point that you found yourself in the throes of anger, or whatever kind of emotion that experience elicited? I also liked the experiment that made me name my points of irrational shame and guilt and de-bunk these myths I have of myself or who I should be. There's a wealth of exercises to try included in the book and I feel like the author is very generous with how much she shares. Kurie žmonių jausmai yra baziniai ir kaip kompensuojame, kai baziniai nepriimti: slopinantys (bazinius) jausmai (nerimas, gėda, kaltė) ar gynybos mechanizmai (sarkazmas, atidėluojimas, perfekcionizmas.

Its Not Always Depression is based on Diana Fosha’s, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP). It is because the real reason behind it was my fear and shame that developed in me growing up with neglectful parents and constant chaos at home. Your book is incredibly insightful as a road map for beginning to pinpoint and understand emotions and their source. Working the change triangle around and around again over a lifetime leads us back to this openhearted state with regularity. But knowing he had been treated for depression for years without good results, I wondered about the diagnosis.Daugiausia dėmesio skiriama pokyčių trikampiui, kuris pristatomas kaip gyvenimą iš esmės pakeisiantis dalykas. Her description of "The Change Triangle" is a concise takeaway that I think about almost daily--how letting ourselves feel emotions is healthy rather than moving away from emotions, illustrated as living in the bottom point of a triangle rather than moving toward a defensive corner or a shame/anxiety corner.

With some trepidation due to the "woo-woo" nature of what I thought it was I delayed reading it for several months before cracking it open. After years of using this tool in her private practice, Hendel was convinced that it could be a life-changing resource for anyone. mane suintrigavo autorės pažadas skaitytoją supažindinti su emocijomis ir kartu atverti stebuklingą pokyčių trikampio strategiją, kuri gerokai palengvins gyvenimą. This 2018 Best Book and Nautilus award winner, It's Not Always Depression, gives us the emotion education we need (and should have ideally received in high school!I’ve also read other therapy books where the example cases are far more illuminative and helpful than those given here. Many people, including me, already know what emotions they are feeling, but this knowledge has not and will not cure our depression like this book is trying to say. As a social worker myself I like the way emotions and defense mechanisms are being looked at in this book. I am VERY aware that I'm scared and angry about how my flatmates decided to invite a friend over tonight without giving me much warning. Overall the book gives an interesting view into how to identify emotions and how to acknowledge them but not helpful for those with chronic mental illness issues, this seems like a book aimed at the neurotypical who are dealing with emotional issues for the first time.
