As a combat trauma therapist I needed this book! I had been experiencing some unhelpful feelings while at work and found myself isolating at home after work and on the weekends. I felt mentally exhausted. After reading this book, I realized controlled empathy was changing my brain chemistry. I have used the strategies outlined in this book and have seen a positive difference in my life. I will continue to use these skills and have recommended this book to many colleagues who purchased it. Thank you for a wonderful heads up for us in the helping profession. I was contemplating early retirement, but now I see it is something I can manage and continue to help our wounded warriors recover.
