    DescriptionFirst aid for failure 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, and loss. But, as Guy Winch, Ph.D., points out, these kinds of emotional injuries often get worse when left untreated and can significantly impact our quality of life. In this fascinating and highly practical book he provides the emotional first aid treatments we have been lacking. Explaining the long-term fallout that can result from seemingly minor emotional and psychological injuries, Dr. Winch offers concrete, easy-to-use exercises backed up by hard cutting-edge science to aid in recovery. He uses relatable anecdotes about real patients he has treated over the years and often gives us a much needed dose of humor as well. Prescriptive, programmatic, and unique, this first-aid kit for battered emotions will appeal to readers of "Unstuck" by James S. Gordon and "Self-Compassion" by Kristin Neff.

    Review quote
    Praise for Guy Winch and his Work "Dr. Guy Winch's practical, clever and clear-headed book offers proven remedies for the myriad pains of daily life. Timely application will prevent small and medium-size emotional ills from becoming bigger ones--and that's just what the psychotherapist ordered." --Jeanne Safer, PhD, author of "Cain's Legacy: Liberating Siblings from a Lifetime of Rage, Shame, Secrecy, and Regret" "The advice Winch offers in this refreshingly useful book is both practical and practicable -- down-to-earth techniques that really can bring relief when things feel like they're falling apart." --Anneli Rufus, author of "The Big Book of Low Self-Esteem" "[An] outstanding work...This smart tome is a valuable addition to the self-help oeuvre." --Publishers Weekly "Excellent for all disgruntled souls out there." --Library Journal "Winch's book was not only helpful; it was positively entertaining. His stories are memorable as well as hysterically funny." --Psychology Today "Motivating...informative...fascinating." --PsychCentral.com "You should run, not walk, to the closest bookstore and grab a copy of "The Squeaky Wheel". Not only do I recommend this book but I would like to see it be required reading for every adult and near adult on the planet." --The Self Improvement Blog
