Overview
We all feel bad from time to time but how do we deal with these feelings? Do the ways we cope with emotional issues hurt us further or do they help us? Perhaps we need a new story. Over the years Dr. Bob Hoke, a psychiatrist, has created a series of therapeutic discussions devoted to "Emotional Repair". Dr. Bob, in his "Emotional Repair Program" uses fictional stories to help us learn to repair our own emotions and deal with the non-fictional world. During animated conversation Dr. Bob shared his stories and their therapeutic context within the "Emotional Repair Program" with Sue Clancy, an artist, who wrote notes and illustrated the stories as Dr. Bob talked. Sue, with Dr. Bob's encouragement, collected her notes and cartoon/graphic novel style illustrations into this book.
Description
We all feel bad from time to time but how do we deal with these feelings? Do the ways we cope with emotional issues hurt us further or do they help us? Perhaps we need a new story. Over the years Dr. Bob Hoke, a psychiatrist, has created a series of therapeutic discussions devoted to "Emotional Repair". Dr. Bob, in his "Emotional Repair Program" uses fictional stories to help us learn to repair our own emotions and deal with the non-fictional world. During animated conversation Dr. Bob shared his stories and their therapeutic context within the "Emotional Repair Program" with Sue Clancy, an artist, who wrote notes and illustrated the stories as Dr. Bob talked. Sue, with Dr. Bob's encouragement, collected her notes and cartoon/graphic novel style illustrations into this book. Dr. Bob's Emotional Repair Program is based on the following assumptions: - People DO have the resources and strengths to resolve their complaints and create emotional growth. - Emotional repair does NOT require long-term therapy. - Practical results can be achieved in a short time. This First Aid Kit focuses on the immediately needed skills to quickly repair emotions and develop the inner resources to resolve emotional problems. The First Aid Kit is a series of fictional stories – and non-fiction cognitive behavior practices – which come with a strong warning: Keep this First Aid Kit to yourself! Resist the impulse to teach the practices in this book to anyone else! You live these practices first – let other people learn from your example! As the master said "Don't try to teach a pig to sing, it wastes your time and irritates the pig."

Dr. Bob Hoke, who passed away in 2015, was Board Certified in both Psychiatry and Occupational Medicine. He had a long career working with “people under stress” both in the U.S. Navy and in his private practices in Houston Texas and in Norman, Oklahoma. Throughout his career he gave a regular series of seminar lectures from his “Emotional Repair Program” – and those lecture notes are the basis of this book.

Dr. Bob, as he was affectionately known, graduated with high honors from Michigan State University with a bachelor’s of science in zoology in 1954. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine in 1958. He interned with the U.S. Naval Hospital from 1958 to 1959. In 1960, Bob was assigned as the Officer in Charge of the U.S. Naval School specializing in submarine and deep-sea diving medicine. He then received a master’s of science in radiation biology from the University of Rochester in 1961. Bob took a literary sabbatical from 1962 to 1967, during which time he completed his residency in occupational medicine from the University of California Los Angeles and a master’s of public health. He served on the USS Thomas Edison and the USS Henry Clay from 1961 through 1964. In 1967 through 1970, he was the Senior Medical Officer and Instructor of Diving Medicine at the U.S. Naval School. He was head of the Environmental Stress Division at the Naval Medical Research Institute from 1970 to 1973. From 1973 to 1976, Bob completed his residency in psychiatry at the Naval Regional Medical Center.

Dr. Hoke acknowledged that the practices in this book, now known as CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) have a long ancestry; thanks to Epictetus, Marcus Aurelius, Albert Ellis, Aaron Beck and his own teachers Maxine Maultsby and Bill O’Hanlon.

Great learning tool "The Emotional Repair Kit is a great antidote for Veterans who often have to face the trauma brought about by their military service. A Veteran can use Dr. Bob's tools to begin the healing process to help them reach stability. As a veteran who has suffered from the emotional damage of war, and who works with veterans to help them overcome their issues, I find this book offers a great starting point in dealing with these issues.

Love This One! From an artist's perspective, this little book is a powerful tool for all of us in the creative field. We need to be accepted, encouraged, recognized, respected and validated in a creative sense. One misplaced word of criticism can turn our creative outlook into a blank stare. And this book is truly the Emotional Repair Kit. Dr. Bob's words help us to understand how we relate to our emotional sensitivity and how we can take responsibility for our emotions. The gift is gaining a constructive stance to manage our emotions within ourselves, allowing us to move forward and create. A must read! Read more
