Format: Paperback
Feeling & Healing Your Emotions is an excellent book for understanding the importance of our emotions in growing to psychological wholeness and in living a happy and virtuous life. This book is helpful for persons suffering with many different symptoms and disorders including anger, depression, fear, anxiety, scrupulosity, obsessive compulsive symptoms, sexual disorders, emotional deprivation, difficulty with a relationship with God, repressive disorders and Emotional Deprivation Disorder (which is written about extensively in Healing the Unaffirmed by Baars & Terruwe). This book is written in an easy-to-read question and answer format and tackles many issues pertinent to our time. It is especially suited for a variety of readers - lay person and professional alike. I highly recommend this book along with all other books by Conrad Baars, MD and Anna Terruwe, MD. This book was edited and revised in 2003.

Format: Paperback
Excellent, excellent, excellent - the missing link in Catholic thought and understanding of the person. I believe Dr Baars work in this book and his other books, "Born Only Once" and "Psychic Wholeness and Healing", is the key to the complete understanding of the 'person' - in addition to our present knowledge of the role and functioning of intellect and will. What Baars discusses about 'affirmation' ties in directly with the discussions of John Paul II in Theology of the Body about the discovery of the heart. Dr Baars books are an absolute 'study' for modern Catholics - especially parents, educators, homeschoolers and those who feel wounded but can't tell how to heal...

Dr. Baars' work is a wonderful examination of emotions, with a Christian/Thomist twist. A great read, especially for Christians who desire a better understanding of the emotions and want a way to integrate and use them more maturely in life. Anything by Dr. Baars is good, but this book is particularly wonderful. He avoids using too much technical language, and explains the concepts thoroughly. This is definitely for the average reader, and I will recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about Christian psychology.

I read this book several years ago, but just now purchased another copy so that I can have it with me on my Kindle all the time.

The book is based on a question and answer format, but the premise of the book is simple: Dr. Baars (a clinical psychiatrist with a breadth of experience) proposed that, rather than arguing with our emotions, and trying to suppress them, it was better to feel them, and heal them. This does not mean giving into one's emotional whims. Baars argues that there is a place for the intellect and prudence, and a space between our emotions and how we react to them. However, our emotions are an important gift from God. The emotions we feel are not a moral calculus. Feeling anger is not a sin for instance; neither is sadness. If we feel anger, and then pile on guilt on top of it for feeling anger, and then try to suppress the anger, we are headed for a ton of emotional problems over time. That is NOT to say we can't sin in how we respond to our anger, but the emotions themselves are there for a very important reason, and if we ignore them or suppress them, we can do ourselves serious harm.

This is a major work in my opinion, and one that needs to be rediscovered and read widely.

This book is all about your emotions, and while the title of the book makes it sound like it's a touchy-feely, new age book, it is far from that. It's really about gaining a better understanding of what emotions are, how they operate, and how to better use them in your everyday life. I think a lot of self help is geared towards giving you techniques and then insisting that you follow them.

What makes this book unique is that he describes how you can become more present to the good things around you. When you learn how to do this, your stress level decreases, and you have more energy. With this renewed energy and perspective you can go about making gradual changes in your life. There's nothing contrived, or forced about it.

This book is also profound in that Dr. Baars combines his knowledge of philosophy, psychology, and religion to arrive at an approach that treats the entire person.
