When a person has an overly active amygdala( a part of the brain that helps regulate emotions), it often results in problematic emotional patterns. Author and Psychologist Dr. Timothy Stokes has spent over 30 years working as clinical psychologist and has developed a three step process for working with what he calls "amygdala scripts".

Tim Stokes, PhD, has been doing psychotherapy and providing clinical consultations to other therapists for more than thirty years. He is also the owner and clinical director of Corporate Psychological Services Inc., a company that has provided psychological services to thousands of people since its inception in 1985. His interest in psychological writing was prompted in 1990 when he began a five-year stint as the editor-in-chief of the Naropa Journal of Contemplative Psychotherapy. His book “What Freud Didn’t Know: A Three-step Practice for Emotional Well-Being through Neuroscience and Psychology” by Rutgers University Press (January 2010) explains in everyday language how clinical and neurobiological research combine to produce surprisingly effective and simple strategies to master most kinds of psychological difficulties.
