The Courage to Feel

A Word at the Start…

In 2008, I published The Courage to Feel: A practical guide to the power and freedom of emotional honesty. I have come to learn that it has helped a great many people. It has even changed lives. I also realized that The Courage to Feel didn’t speak to the younger people, particularly teenagers, who came into my office.

Youth is a tumultuous time of life, and it is made more so when the adults that surround them don’t model emotional competency. Without mature emotional models, young people are left abandoned with their anger, their confusion, and their fears as they enter the journey of self-discovery. This realization planted the seeds that eventually gave birth to –

How Simon Left His Shell: The courage to feel for young people.

In my first book, the chapters are interspersed with a fable about a turtle named Simon.. I used the fable in order to make the teaching in The Courage to Feel more vivid and interesting. (Self-help books, I must admit, can be boring beyond belief).

The fable turned about Simon’s desire—and journey of self-discovery--to free the artist within him by leaving his shell. His hope was that then he could be free to paint scenes of his home in a southern marsh. Still, I felt that I was not reaching young people as directly as I wanted.

Consequently, I have expanded Simon’s story to How Simon Left His Shell and added a “User’s Guide for Parents, Teachers and Therapists.” This experiential and interactive guide, with its questions and practice scenarios, uses the fable to teach young people to value and listen to their emotional guidance system and how to be emotionally competent in stormy times.

It is my hope that emotional competence and courage will prepare these future adults as they journey through relationships, marriages and families of their own into a world thirsty for healing waters that spring from the opened heart.

Trauma-Informed Approaches to Eating Disorders

A Practical Guide to the Power and Freedom of Emotional Honesty

by Andrew Seubert

"Emotions are complex things: they can make life hell or make it sweet. So, here's a question: Do you have emotions or do emotions have you? Andrew Seubert's The Courage to Feel can help you to have emotions and make your life rich and workable. It's short, easy to understand and very powerful."
- Bill O'Hanlon, author of Change 101


TABLE OF CONTENTS"…the book is a "tour de force." I don't know of anything in the literature that is such a comprehensive and clear guide to an understanding of the central role of emotions and ‘the courage to feel’ in living a healthy, ‘whole-some’, and sacred life, enabling one to experience "the rapture of being alive." Congratulations! You have done many a great service."
- Clifford Smith, Ph.D.
