Picking up right at the point where Janet Woititz’s 1990 hit book Adult Children of Alcoholics left off, clinical psychologist Tian Dayton’s latest contribution contains fresh perspectives and new analysis on how to gain back emotional stability after growing up with the trauma of addiction, abuse, and dysfunction. Dr. Dayton accomplishes this by presenting and explaining the latest research in neuropsychology and the role trauma plays on chemically altering the brain. With compassion and clear explanations and her own personal journey, Dayton teaches readers how to undo the neuropsychological damage of trauma to rewire the brain and reverse the negative effects trauma has on our future relationships and behaviors to gain emotional sobriety.
In Emotional Sobriety, Dr. Dayton teaches readers:
How to understand the mind/body relationship of addiction and relationship trauma
How to rewire your brain to undo the negative effects trauma has on personal, career, and romantic relationships
How changing the way one lives and perceives adult relationships can change the way one thinks and feels and vice versa
