How to Fix a Broken Heart

How to Fix a Broken Heart

Guy Winch

Overview

Heartbreak is a universal aspect of being human, and the emotional pain can be as real as that from a broken limb. But despite the fact that most of us will experience heartbreak at one point or another, few of us consider it a serious social issue.

Guy Winch is a clinical psychologist and public speaker, as well as a leading advocate for integrating emotional health into our daily lives, workplaces, and institutions. In this book, the author examines two types of emotional pain that struggle to be taken seriously – romantic heartbreak, and grief over losing a pet.

Through scientific research, case studies, and insightful wisdom, Winch offers empathetic and practical tools for dealing with heartbreak, showing how it rewires our brain, emotions, and behaviors. How to Fix a Broken Heart reveals not only the true depth of heartbreak, but how little we know about it, and how destructive its devaluation is on both the personal and social level.

Favorite Quote

"Given how ubiquitous heartbreak is, it's remarkable that we know so little about how to heal it. Even more remarkable, given how personally familiar we are with the emotional devastation it causes, is that our societal attitudes toward heartbreak are downright dismissive."
