The Dr. Pat Show: Talk Radio to Thrive By!: Escaping the Emotional Roller Coaster: ACT for the emotionally sensitive with Dr. Patricia Zurita Ona or "Dr. Z!"Some people are too sensitive: feeling overwhelmed by their emotions and unable to control them, they can’t seem to dial them back. Dr Zurita Ona calls them “super feelers,” and in ESCAPING THE EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASER (Exisle Publishing, dist. by QDS/Quarto) she draws on her years of experience as a clinical psychologist to provide a clear and simple roadmap for taking control of emotions rather than being hijacked by them. Using the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) as well as aspects of positive psychology, she explains how to distinguish between emotion-based behavior and values-based behavior and choose an appropriate response. The result is an effective way to combat the feelings of loneliness and fear of abandonment so many super-feelers experience, while also building and maintaining strong healthy relationships.

Along the way, Dr Z shares insights, strategies and concepts like self-acceptance, forgiveness, compassion, mindfulness, and conflict resolution. She provides tools to discover that, no matter how intense the situation, everyone can always choose to act in a way that is consistent with their personal values and experience fulfilling, loving, and caring relationships.
