We are in the darkest of times. We currently have a POTUS who is deliberately dividing our country into polar opposites, with the help of polar media outlets, which inevitably does nothing but push emotional trigger buttons all over us! The result is name calling, shut down, stone walling, avoidance behaviors, cognitive dissonance and anger-induced anxiety. Bravo, Diane Altomare, for igniting our repair buttons in the middle of a country at odds with itself, through her work in "Emotionally Trumped Out". Go deep inside and identify your trigger button. Access it, heal it, and use it to turn the chaos into peace. I've done the work with the help of her first book, "Clarity", then topped off the process with "Trumped Out". This shadow work is exactly what we need to heal a nation. POTUS has been put in place to act as a catalyst for healing. His bullying, name calling, and insulting behaviors are unacceptable within a country that is crying out for peace. Read the book. Practice the philosophy. Find peace within. Thank you for this home run, Diane! This fan can't get enough!

I absolutely love love love this book! So many emotions are being unearthed by the political climate right now. This is such uncharted territory to have this country led by someone that is knee deep in every single controversial topic at the moment, Russia, Saudi Arabia, sexual assault, racism, North Korea or bullying and more. Families and friends have been divided so this book is just right on time to support those that are struggling with what is going on. You learn how to take heated discussions with family and friends and turn them into a moment of love. This book will help to heal the divide! After all united we stand divided we fall. Perhaps the purpose to this madness is the divide. We cannot let that happen and we certainly need words of encouragement. For those of us that are trying to understand what is happening to our Country, it is more important than ever to NOT allow the divide to take over but to see that this is opportunity to grow and heal. Diane's book helps to wake us up from the fighting and help lead us to being inspiring instead! Everyone listens better when the yelling stops! Thank you for this incredible book! What a gift!

Build Bridges not Walls No matter what camp you're in these days, social morality and politeness have been stripped away. People are upset, scared and paranoid. Let's face it, this is how our democracy works. Those who vote, have a voice. Those who didn't better think about where we are now, and where we want to steer our country next, away from this war of words and into action that addresses the important issues that face us. We can do better than this. Now the question is how do we see our country in the next decade, what country do we want to raise our children and grandchildren in. One of one of hopelessness and opportunists or hope and opportunity? Entitlement is on an emotional rampage. Trump has successfully stirred up our trauma and emotions, triggering many to lash out on social media. We can't solve anything this way. By identifying ourselves with this party or that ideology, we isolate ourselves from listening and feeling compassion for ourselves and our neighbors. Obviously we all need a "time out" to think about what we care about most, our families, our health, our safety and security,.. OUR COUNTRY! I devoured this book in a couple days, and have found that in all my conversations, my listening has grown deeper, regardless of shared ideology. This book is skillfully laid out, so we can further our conversations, whether at the family dinner table, at work or shared over social media. This book is insightful to ways in which we can consciously build bridges in our communication, to find pathways to overcome our individual differences (that keep us stuck) and discover our common ground, to value each and our own, universal humanness. Bravo, Diane! We CAN do better!

A much needed book especially as we go into the Holidays. We have families not speaking because the emotional divide we have in our country since January 2017. What is missing is dialogue and compassion and understanding for differences. The worst offender with the most offensive and disturbing language is in the Oval Office. This book seeks to begin healing the emotional divide in a courageous, compassionate way. We are still in the United States of America and we still have Freedom of Speech. Read the book yourself and consider having dialogues with your family this Holiday season.

The POTUS has chosen divisive rhetoric and exaggeration as the base of communication. This creates a divide that does not encourage partisan dialogue either in Congress or in the streets. The purpose of this book is to show the readers that no matter the subject civil discourse can be had at all times. This is done through thoughtful listening and respect for another’s point of view. We do not have to be enemies because we disagree. One of the reviews points out that Diane Altomare holds liberal views . However, this merely supports the premise of how to navigate differing opinions. Diane Altomare’s political views are not the point, her method of modifying our approach to those whose opinions differ, is the point of this book. Very well written with clear ideas on how to turn down the emotion around the headlines! This is an important read, especially as we approach the holidays. Buy a copy for those you love! Definitely 5stars!!!

Like with anything there is always something useful in material you read that is geared towards improving relationships. However in order to unite the country which is in a cold Civil War, it suggests logically that the left, right, and center all have equal treatment in any discourse. There are countless examples of the importance of self examination and introspection in order to identify where our own internal baggage impedes harmony in relationships. The author does accomplish the task of advocating how to approach interpersonal communications from an intention of coming to peaceful agreement whether to agree or disagree. The only thing that stands out in this respect is that the left and liberal media sources are not quite balanced in presentation in this book with center and right media sources. Much of the public is influenced by media. There are countless examples of individuals who are widely followed bloggers and thinkers, such as Candace Owens or Tim Pool or An0maly who were not always conservative thinkers. In fact it is independent journalist Tim Pool who still identifies himself as a center left thinker. However when you listen to his podcasts it’s obvious that because his focus is on the facts, logic, and healthy discourse at times he comes across as what mainstream media would decide is a Conservative. What makes me question the general application of this book is that the author is referred to as an emotional expert. She has never held a license to practice a mental health vocation. Her emphasis on shadow work which is a concept in Jungian psychology would have any reasonable person think that she was a trained analyst by the Jung Institute. This appears to not be the case. Furthermore the author has a noticeable liberal ideology which in itself is not bad but if you want to reach across the aisle doesn’t it make sense to give a platform equally to the middle and right? Many people who were formerly liberals and even registered Democrats that are now independent or have turned a Republican state frequently that an examination of the facts from an objective almost scientific perspective was the catalyst to a shift in position. Ultimately it comes down to wanting harmony on both sides of the aisle. Without the need for a referee but it appears that we as a country, many times in the course of discussion, must require one. Diane Altomare can be commended on her effort and good intentions in this book. But the only way to thaw relations among the left and right in America circa 2018/2019 is to be as neutral an arbiter of dialogue as possible. Based on several Podcasts and other interviews that this author has participated in, her liberal bias which she is free to have is apparent. The concern about this book that has been expressed by those who identify as conservative is that the author has made comments on her radio show that POTUS 45 does not have a love for people because of name calling. This only fires up upset on the left. One explanation, which in my personal opinion makes sense, is by former Secret Service Dan Bongino and other independent journalists who are natives of New York. These people give a reasonable if not logical explanation of how POTUS acts like a typical person from Queens, New York. If Diane Altomare had included something like this in her book, such as perspectives from the right with a healthy respect for their position from her, this alone would’ve helped thaw the divide. Finally, her effort is ad
