Calm in the Storm The New Book on Settling Strong Emotion
I am so excited to tell you about my newest publication!
Calm in the Storm is a collection of simple emotion regulation strategies that can be self-learned and then utilized in moments of over-whelming emotion (such as anxiety and panic). There are a lot of people who struggle with settling strong emotions, and whose symptoms are causing a great deal of distress in their lives. My hope in creating this book is that the strategies can work for a wide range of individuals, helping them cope by empowering them to settle emotions.
The book is not intended to replace counselling, but rather to provide a collection of efficient strategies that can be learned and then applied in a moment of emotional flooding, to reduce despair and to return to the present.
This book will ignite hope and spark a renewed belief in your inner potential.

“I’m excited about the release of Susan’s book on emotional self-regulation. As a practicing therapist who aims to put patients in touch with their core emotions, I frequently encounter individuals who resist experiencing feelings for fear of being overtaken by them. “What am I supposed to do with all this anger/sadness/fear?!” This book will be a resource for supporting clients in managing difficult emotional states towards safety and healing.” - Larisa Blum, MFT, with Grateful Heart Holistic Therapy Center
