Here psychotherapist David Richo examines the science of triggers and our reactions of fear, anger, and sadness. He helps us understand why our bodies respond before our minds have a chance to make sense of a situation. By looking deeply at the roots of what provokes us—the words, actions, and even sensory elements like smell—we find opportunities to understand the origins of our triggers and train our bodies to remain calm in the face of traumatic experiences.

In-the-moment exercises on how to process difficult emotions and physical manifestations are offered throughout the book to cultivate the inner resources necessary to deal with recurring trauma.

Triggers thrive on the illusion that we can’t trust ourselves. With inner resources we find out we can trust ourselves indeed—and in deed.

 

Trauma never goes entirely away but it can become what happened rather than what still hurtsOur goal is not to root out all our triggers but to find a trailhead from them into the psychological and spiritual work that has been so long awaiting us. This is how we turn our triggers into tools.

“When we are triggered,” Richo writes, “we are being bullied by our own unfinished business.” Explore what your body's knee-jerk reactions to trauma can teach you. Triggers: How We Can Stop Reacting and Start Healing acts as a guide to your body's powerful responses, helping you to remain calm under pressure and discover the key to emotional healing.

“David Richo helps normalize the fact that everyone has triggers—and they can be a gift. Triggers point directly to interrupted spiritual work that can free us from suffering. This book offers creative tools to step aside from reactivity and engage the curiosity that can lead to deeper exploration and truly liberating discoveries.”—Jan Chozen Bays, author of Mindfulness on the Go
