Why is it that some people can reflect and respond to stressful situations in an honest but calm way, and others simply explode? Why do some people cling to interpretations of events that are exaggerated or even distorted? According to Judith Siegel, the answers to these questions are deeply rooted in our past memories, but habitual overreaction can be overcome by facing these memories and recognizing the emotional triggers that cause us to lose control. Stop Overreacting presents Siegel’s model for coping with intense reactions to difficult or overwhelming emotions. First, readers examine their unprocessed feelings about past events in their lives and discover how past relationships and events have continued to influence their current interpersonal relationships and needs. The book explains the concepts of splitting (seeing things in black and white and acting accordingly) and flooding (reacting to all similar intense emotional experiences in the past, rather than focusing on the instance at hand). Then, readers learn new skills for neutralizing emotional triggers and returning to the moment when they feel overwhelmed instead of lashing out or retreating into depression and/or anxiety. This book specifically addresses challenges in parenting, intimate relationships, and the work environment
