  8. Emotional sadomasochism in BDSM/Kink
    1. It’s consensual!
    2. More intense types beyond general 101 degradation and humiliation are most commonly referred to as edge play because there can be long term psychological effects.
      1. Common forms of emotional sadomasochistic play:
        1. Degradation: make a person feel less about themselves.
        2. Humiliation: embarrass someone.
        3. Fear Play: create a situation where someone believes they are at risk for imminent danger. (Primal, blade, consensual non-consent, kidnapping/capture, interrogation, waterboarding, slave sharing/auction, …)
        4. Total Power Exchange: Giving away all of ones power is in itself an act of emotional masochism. 
  9. Emotional Sobriety (Dr. Tian Dayton, PhD): sheds light on how and why an individual engages in unhealthy coping mechanisms and how to stop them; it is based on research of the physiology of emotions, that is, the mind/body connection (the thinking mind and our limbic system-the part of the brain that processes emotions);  studies show that repeated painful experiences or “relationship trauma” deregulate the limbic system, thus inhibiting our ability to naturally process our emotions and control or reactions to stress.  When we are in this state of imbalance, it is often that we reach for alternate, sometimes self-destructive “mood mangers”.
  10. DBT Diary (Dr. Matthew McKay, PhD and Jeffrey C. Wood, Psy D): Therapists developed DBT as way to help people with overwhelming emotions calm themselves when their feelings become too painful or out of control.  This book provides an overview of each of the four DBT skills(distress tolerance, mindfulness, emotion regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness) and includes a journal you can use each day to monitor your successes, chart your progress, and stay on track making productive changes on our life.
  11. Practicing Happiness Workbook (Dr. Ruth Baer, PhD): Helps you break free from the psychological traps that can lead to stress, anxiety, and depression.  The author outlines four common traps that people get stuck in:  rumination, avoidance, emotion-driven behavior, and self-criticism.  This book helps you apply mindfulness skills to everyday situations to aid in overcoming these traps.
