Description - Unf#ck Your Brain: using science to get over anxiety, depression, anger, freak-outs, and triggers by Faith G. Harper

A no-nonsense and helpful guide on how to cope with a slew of mental health issues that are hellbent on ruining the lives of millions of people worldwide.

Our brains are doing their best to help us out, but they can be real assholes. Sometimes it seems like your own brain is out to get you - like when you melt down in the middle of the supermarket, pick fights with your date, get addicted to something, or shut down completely at the worst possible moments. You've already told your brain firmly that it isn't good to do these things. But your brain has a mind of its own. That's where this book comes in.

With humour, patience, and lots of swearing, Dr Faith shows you the science behind what's going on in your skull, and talks you through the process of retraining your brain to respond appropriately to the non-emergencies of everyday life. If you're working to deal with old or newly acquired traumas (especially post-traumatic stress disorder), or if you just want to have a more measured response to situations you face all the time, this book can help you put the pieces of the puzzle together and get your life and brain back.
'Unfuck Your Brain does a great job of filtering its readers out with its salty title. If language offends, pass this book by - but those who skip it will also miss amazing and thoughtful insights ... The book is full of useful suggestions for dealing with the mind-messes commonly caused by trauma and other mishaps in the past ... This is essential reading for those who want to understand why their minds so often seem uncontrollable, and it offers plenty of realistic tips for supporting healing ... Dr Faith is a hoot with heart, and her guide is full of workable, professional advice, as well as it is replete with sarcasm, good humour, and grace.'
-Foreword Reviews, starred review

'As a passionate professor, counsellor, and follower of neuroscience research, I strongly recommend Unfuck Your Brain. Dr Harper's writing style definitely held my attention and made me laugh many times while still informing me about some complicated neuroscience and health related topics. This book is a wonderful change from all the dry, dull, writing I usually read on a daily basis. I encourage everyone dealing with any of these issues or who is interested in becoming updated in the recent neuroscience research to purchase a copy and start reading it today.'

'Some peeps need an extra helping of humour/F-bombs to dive into the looming topic of anxiety, and Unfuck Your Brain is definitely one of the more boisterous, successful self-help hits out there.'
