Winch offers valuable advice for bouncing back from life’s disappointments—both big and small—in this outstanding work. This smart tome is a valuable addition to the self-help oeuvre.” Publisher’s Weekly

“The combination of academic research and lifelike scenarios make this a book with depth and relevance.” NY Journal of Books.

Synopsis: Although we have bandages for cuts, chicken soup for colds, and ice packs for bruises, most of us have no idea how to treat day-to-day emotional injuries such as failure, rejection, guilt, and loss. But these kinds of emotional injuries often get worse when left untreated and can significantly impact our quality of life and cause damage to our emotional wellbeing.

Each chapter is dedicated to a specific common emotional wound and explains the short term emotional injuries that we sustain and the long-term psychological fallout that can result if we leave these injuries untreated. The second part of each chapter offers concrete, easy-to-use treatments, all of which are backed up by hard cutting-edge science that we can administer to aid in our recovery. Featuring relatable anecdotes about real patients, fascinating psychological experiments, and due to my background doing stand-up comedy–a dose or two of humor.

Emotional First Aid is a psychological medicine cabinet, a tool kit that can protect our mental health and increase our emotional resiliency.
