Welcome to What to Read Wednesday, a series where we suggest different reading material about mental health and wellness. Stay tuned every Wednesday for new recommendations!
This month, we’re highlighting the works of psychotherapist and bestselling author, David Richo, PhD, MFT. Today, we’d like to take a look at Richo’s book, “How We Can Stop Reacting and Start Healing.” According to Richo’s website, “A trigger is any word, person, event, or experience that touches off an immediate emotional reaction… We are all triggered at times by what people say or do, especially in relationships. Triggers have a history. Some are reminders of a pet peeve or an irritation from the recent past. Some are examples of post-traumatic stress going all the way back to childhood wounds. We can learn about ourselves from our triggers. We can find out what we need to work on, what is still unresolved in us. Our 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. For this we go to psychology with help from neuro-science. We can also turn to spiritual practices, especially ones from Buddhism such as mindfulness and loving-kindness. Thus, triggers lead us to resources both around and in us. This book helps us find out what triggers are, when they come from, and how to handle them so that reactions turn into healing responses.”
