Green defines issues surrounding the topic and explains alternative medical techniques and tools that can be utilized in addressing the identified issues. The work begins by explaining why the material is useful and how it can be helpful. It then discusses topics such as emotional burnout, uncertainty, emotional and spiritual wellbeing among others. Apart from defining specific topics, the work explains the symptoms of such issues such as in the case of emotional burnout. Each topic discusses coping mechanisms and outlines exercises that can be used.

Emotional Survival Guide is organized effectively as the content is broken down into specific sub-topics that tackle distinct themes. For instance, in discussing types of energy-draining people, the work breaks them down into specific categories. A comprehensive table of contents also acts as a helpful guide through the book. In addition, useful exercises accompanied by diagrams help explain the techniques discussed in the text. The work is also brief and to the point. Each topic follows a similar format, which makes it easy to follow the information in the book. Topics framed in the form of questions evoke interest in the content that follows. The quiz included is essential not only in identifying whether one is an empath, but it is also useful in explaining the specific characteristics that empaths possess.

I especially liked how Melody R. Green breaks down each topic. She offers an explanation of the topic, coping mechanisms that are adopted, and practical ways that can be utilized to deal with each specific issue. The issues explained were also relatable such as emotional overload or reacting and dealing with shocking news. The conversational tone used also made it possible for me to connect with the discussions. I also appreciated that most of the proposed solutions are accessible such as listening to music and taking walks to strengthen the immune system. Emotional Survival Guide by Melody R. Green discusses an important and relevant topic and puts forward helpful related tools. It is a great read for readers seeking alternative medical solutions.
