Mental Health Tips for the Zombie Apocalypse

Mental Health Tips For The Zombie Apocalypse: A Workbook


"I read this book late at night after everyone else was in bed and I almost injured myself trying not to laugh too loudly. Even though I narrowly avoided a trip to the ER I enjoyed this workbook immensely and it is definitely a book that I will get in the dead tree version as well. Shaun Phelps has a real winner in this book not only does it have helpful tips it is also hilariously funny. After reading this book and my hands on experience I feel like a mental health expert so hurry and grab your copy today."-Rosa Thomas-McBroom horrorgeekmagazine.com"There has been a great deal of thought as to how to prepare oneself for a zombie apocalypse: Gather ammunition, food, find a safe and secure facility, etc We have seen it time and time again on the movie screen and in books. The best intentioned characters and air-tight security strongholds appear impenetrable at first glance, but by the end of the story something has gone tragically awry. There is a common theme to this awryness: People.Unlike food and bullets, people serve their own purpose. Their purpose is survival. It doesn t matter how much you know or love your friend, family member, or whomever. No one is more important to any person than themselves. How could they be? They grew their entire lives in their body. Can you pretend to know someone else's thoughts? Do you expect other people to know yours?But I digress we obviously don t have time for lectures. People are funny things, they have brains with excesses or absences of hormones; they have impulsive behaviors and hidden agendas. People have expectations for the way the world works and how they should be treated. Bullets and food never have to adapt their recipe to deal with trauma. The brain stores fear and anger hidden even to our own conscious mind, and the brain adds the hormones necessary to survive in difficult times. As a result, humans start reacting to even the most unexpected stimulus as if it were death itself or the perfect time to start screaming at the worst possible moment.Some of this book may sound callous. There is a great deal to be explored regarding humanity, and what defines humanity in the face of great danger. Can we maintain our humanity while leaving our friends to die? What is humanity when life becomes so precious and our morals are stripped to bare bones? I will not be surprised to hear this book does not sit well with many of its readers.Please recognize that when faced with great danger we must make difficult decisions. How do we deal with those decisions? How can we make the great sacrifices of our friends and neighbors actually mean something? No one is perfect, and in an imperfect situation we are likely to make some regrettable decisions. Should we give up? If your answer is yes, you bought the wrong workbook. This is not Mental Health Tips to Help You DIE in the Zombie Apocalypse. There is no way I m going to be able to make a follow-up workbook if my entire readership base is dead.Moving on: Our pre-apocalyptic society condemns violence. We also believe people can change. We hate what substance abuse does, but we hope for the substance abusers. We provide mental health services in the belief that people can alter their lifestyles and make better decisions. In the zombie apocalypse this belief must be maintained. If society is to thrive we must find a way to bravely overcome the emotional traumas that are guaranteed to come, from both internal and external sources.People are, kindly put, inadequately prepared for a zombie apocalypse. To survive we must take the best from every corner of the psychological insights provided to us. So that is exactly what this workbook will do. I will guide you through a variety of perspectives to help you think, grow, and thrive. My approach may appear offensive, but it may also be the very thing that will save your life. "
