Book Title: Emotional Logic
Author: Dr Trevor Griffiths and Dr Marian Langsford
Two former GPs provide a refreshing and liberating medical view of the useful purposes of our unpleasant emotions to move life on with healthy adjustments (E-motion = energy in motion). They show through true stories how anxiety, anger, guilty self-questioning and depressive emptiness, when viewed in a totally different light, are not negative, but are the vital evidence we need to name our hidden personal values. Harnessing emotion into values-based action plans renews inner strength, prevents illness and transforms setbacks, disappointments and hurts into paths to come through stronger.
Trevor Griffiths studied medicine at Oxford University. He was a pioneering GP for 25 years, introducing counsellors and family therapy into his practice. For the last 15 years he has instead run the Emotional Logic Centre full-time, training Emotional Logic coaches in the UK and around the world to prevent mental illness and socially disruptive behaviour, not just to treat it.
Marian Langsford is married to Trevor. She studied medicine at the Royal Free, London, and has used and researched Emotional Logic extensively in the medical practice they set up together. Now retired, she has joined Trevor in the international teaching of Emotional Logic, as well as enjoying their four grandchildren and cultivating their garden. As she says, ‘Planting flowers that grow is at least as important as pulling up weeds.’
