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 humour, 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).

Does she believe a reader seeking often life saving advice deserves to be subjected to her appalling abuse of our profession and psychological recommendations. I only read to page 15 Dr Lynette Arnoldus
I didn’t enjoy her repeated swearing but I guess you’ve got to expect it with a book with *that* title!! You notice it less after a while. 😉

Cons: I have issues with the way it's written. First, the Title Doesn't Really Tell You It's About Trauma. So people looking for that won't find it and people who think this book is about something else will be out a few bucks. It's written with the view that absolutely Everyone has gone through some kind of trauma & could benefit from this book. I won't argue that, I can't know.
The Language is not necessary. There isn't a sentence not peppered with f-bombs and every other curse word. I have NO problem with cursing but this is overkill! It's obvious the book is geared towards young people but if trauma effects all ages why write it like that? It's comically full of urban lingo which almost discredits the intelligent and noble writer. Because it's got a lot of valuable info., I read it, but it's hard. I think even a teenager would roll their eyes at the writer trying to relate to them and sound cool.
By the time a lot of people get around to doing some self help reading they're pushing 30 & up. It would be great if it were scrapped & re-written for everyone.
It also says, "I dont think young people are very smart & won't be interested in reading something unless it sounds 'woke." That's not what I'd want to hear if I were the target audience. In fact there's nothing worse than an adult trying to talk like your generation when they're not.
The other thing it says is, if you're older than the target audience, this book won't be useful to you, which is also untrue. So, kudos to the writer for delving into a serious much needed topic but please get an Editor.
Honestly, depending on where you’re at-this book can possibly trigger you, so it’s important to keep on reading, just bits at a time.
The book has an informal tone, which makes it easy to read and understand- and feels like a witty, down to earth friend is giving you a lot of useful advice- which is great especially if you’re trying to work things out on your own.
Glad I bought this book. 100% recommend to anyone.
