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
“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

Bereits nach wenigen Seiten wird dem interessierten Laien klar, dass er/sie hier einen kleinen Schatz in den Händen hält. Aussagen, die auf den Punkt kommen und desöfteren Aha-Effekte hervorrufen, Beispiele, die nachvollziehbar sind, und Handlungsanweisungen, die sinnvoll erscheinen und vor allem auch auf den eigenen Alltag übertragbar sind. Dazu ist der Inhalt nach Relevanz geordnet und gleich das erste Kapitel über Zurückweisungen war für meinen konkreten Anlass, dieses Buch zu kaufen, ein Volltreffer. Zudem verzichtet der Author dankenswerterweise darauf, für Kollegen zu schreiben, d.h. wissenschaftliche Hintergründe werden für Laien erklärt und nicht für ein Fachpublikum, und die Sprache ist auch für Nichtmuttersprachler verständlich. Zudem ist das Werk durch seine saubere Strukturierung als Nachschlagewerk geeignet, man muss es nicht in einem durch lesen - was ich zugegebenermaßen trotzdem mache, weil ich es so lesens- und wissenswert finde.

...die Qualität des Papiers und der Verarbeitung so schlecht, dass ich das Buch zurückschicken musste. Schade eigentlich, denn der Inhalt des Buches war top. Aber für ein schönes Leseerlebnis gehört eben noch mehr dazu.

5.0 von 5 Sternen First aid for the psyche 27. März 2014
Von Deb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As a therapist, I'm constantly looking out for helpful resources for clients. This book has quickly been added to my list. It so clearly explores the seven most common--and inevitable, if you're human!--psychological injuries and then provides specific "first aid" treatments for each:

1. Rejection--The emotional cuts and scrapes of daily life
Rejections can inflict four distinct emotional wounds, each of which might require some from of emotional first aid: lingering visceral pain, anger and aggressive urges, harm to self-esteem, and damage to feeling that we belong. (p. 17)
* Argue with self-criticism
* Revive your self-worth
* Replenish feelings of social connection
* Desensitize yourself

2. Loneliness--Relationship muscle weakens
Loneliness makes us constantly on guard, prepared for the disappointment and rejection we are sure will come. As a result, we miss opportunities to make social connections and behave in ways that push others away. (p. 53)
* Remove your negatively tinted glasses
* Identify your self-defeating behaviors
* Take on the other person's perspective
* Deepen your emotional bonds
* Create opportunities for social connection
* Adopt a best friend

3. Loss and Trauma--Walking on broken bones
Loss and trauma create four psychological wounds. They cause overwhelming emotional pain, they undermine our basic sense of identity and the roles we play in life, they destabilize our belief systems and our understanding of the world, and they challenge our ability to remain present and engaged in our most important relationships. (p. 85)
* Soothe your emotional pain your way
* Recover lost aspects of your self
* Find meaning in tragedy

4. Guilt--The poison in our system
Guilt usually serves an important function by alerting us to when we might have harmed another person or when any actions we're considering might do so. However, if our offense is serious or if we've already made significant efforts to apologize to a person we harmed or atone for our actions in other ways and our guilt remains excessive, or if we suffer from substantial survivor guilt, or separation and disloyalty guilt, emotional first aid is indeed necessary. (p. 119)
* Learn the recipe for an effective apology
* Forgive yourself
* Reengage in life

5. Rumination--Picking at emotional scabs
In order to break the self-reinforcing nature of ruminative thoughts and allow our wounds to heal, we must interrupt the cycle of rumination once it gets triggered, and we should weaken the urge to ruminate at the source by diminishing the intensity of the feelings that fuel it. We must also make efforts to monitor our relationships and to ease the emotional burden we might be placing on loved ones. (p. 154)
* Change your perspective
* Reframe the anger
* Go easy on your friends

6. Failure--Emotional chest colds become psychological pneumonias
When we fail repeatedly or when we respond to failures in ways that set back our confidence, our self-esteem, and our chances of future success, we run the risk of allowing our emotional chest cold to turn into psychological pneumonia. Because much of the anxiety associated with failures can build upon itself, it is best to be prudent and apply psychological first aid treatment as soon as possible after meaningful or bothersome failures occur. (p. 189)
* Get support and get real
* Focus on factors in your control
* Take responsibility and own the fear
* Distract yourself from performance pressure distractions

7. Low Self-Esteem--Weak emotional immune systems
Having low self-esteem weakens our emotional immune systems and inflicts three kinds of psychological wounds: it makes us more vulnerable to psychological injuries, it makes us dismissive of positive feedback and resistant to emotional nutrients, and it makes us feel unassertive and disempowered. (p. 232)
* Adopt self-compassion and silence the critical voices in your head
* Identify your strengths and affirm them
* Increase your tolerance for compliments
* Increase your personal empowerment
* Improve your self-control

Think of this book as first aid for the psyche. And, use as needed until symptoms subside.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I knew how rejection affected me but never knew how to ease it 29. April 2014
Von heather - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
3 yrs since my husbands tragic death. My life is now wonderful and happy, but when I start dating or trying to form relationships with men, and I get rejected, it seems to hurt x10 times more and takes me longer to move on.
Reading this book gave me strategies and hope. Whenever I experienced rejection or even sensed something wasn't making me feel good, I instantly went into panic mode. I now have some valuable tools to use.
Thank you

5.0 von 5 Sternen Practical and completely achievable advice for handling emotional injuries 10. Mai 2015
Von lortz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I love how this book 1) acknowledges that we need to address our emotional wounds with they happen and 2) uses practical examples and gives tangible step-by-step instructions to help deal with emotional injuries. It's not another book that leaves you with a stack of ways you *should* think and *should* react. Instead, you give it a read to learn the science -- then keep it handy (like a medicine cabinet) for when an injury happens. I've read somewhere around 10 books in this genre and this one by far stands out as the most practical and achievable guide to emotional health.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Emotional First Aid by Guy Winch, PhD 15. September 2013
Von SusiQ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Simple but concrete solutions to complex problems? A virtual medicine chest to open and use what's inside to heal our woes? The answer is yes. In Guy Winch's new book, Emotional First Aid, he defines what he calls "everyday psychological inquires" and how a person, the average individual, can understand and deal with the curve balls life throws at us. With the caveat that if your pain is so severe that you want to do harm to yourself or worse that professional intervention should be sought, the chapters outline how to determine what is wrong and then how to fix it. If you are lonely or have been rejected or feel like you are a failure, Dr. Winch gives the reader a formula to heal yourself. From written exercises to making apologies or self-forgiveness, the detailed prescriptions are sensible and clear. We all have our issues and Emotional First Aid is a handbook everyone should own.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastically practical and insightful. 25. Juli 2013
Von Dr Alice Boyes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a fantastically practical and insightful book for dealing with the everyday stings that we all experience. It's chock full of relatable stories as well as interesting thought experiments that will help you heal when you've experienced situations like rejection, failure, and loss. Read this book once now and then keep it as a reference book for when life strikes and you need to dip back into it for guidance, comfort, and getting clarity on difficult situations and emotions.
