“Of all the poignant scenes of human interactions, one of the most universal challenges is emotional flooding and the relational damage it causes. Since few of us are exempt, we all need a guide—and The Road to Calm Workbook is just that. With elegant and detailed exercises, this manual will help you STOP emotional flooding. And if you are a clinician, your clients can use it too. We recommend it to everyone as an essential tool to keep handy.

“There are two big strengths to the book. The first is the audio sessions which will give people a chance to experience and work with exercises while hearing Carol’s voice. . . . They can listen and experience a change in their symptoms and later do the exercises on their own. The second strength is the way the book helps readers make connections between their symptoms and behaviors in a way that is simultaneously non-threatening and empowering. . . . giving people hope and then showing them a way out of the pain.” — Ryan Nagy
