Applying Affect Psychology to improve our understanding of our emotions  

In his book, Dr. Lynch “clarifies and explains how we human beings might better understand ourselves with more patient acceptance of our basic emotions. “ He presents the hugely important work of Dr. Silvan Tomkins in an easy to understand way so that we know “how we might go about having more positive than negative affective (emotional) experiences”.

If we, as humans, have anything in common it is that we want to “feel” good more and “feel” bad less.  That is “Affect Psychology.”  This is the place to start.

This site is comprised of a collection of work by Dr. Brian Lynch, a family doctor whose patients have benefited tremendously from his approach which is based on “Affect Psychology” and the work of Silvan S. Tomkins.  It is placed here for the benefit of a larger audience and discussion is encouraged.
