"This book is a study of human communication, conscious and especially unconscious. At its heart are the rediscovery and elaboration of a specific method for decoding hidden messages, first described by Freud in 1900 in his masterpiece, The Interpretation of Dreams. This approach is called trigger decoding since a message is deciphered entirely in light of its stimulus - the experience that set it off. Founded on the basic thesis that human communication is both internally motivated (intrapsychically based) and interactionally determined (interpersonal), this type of decoding eliminates the arbitrary qualities so characteristic of the usual efforts we make in trying to identify the presence of hidden messages in a variety of human expressions. The result is a decoding method that provides access to emotionally critical encoded expressions, and which is relatively simple, highly specific, immediately dynamic, and alive with cogent meaning. The book begins by giving attention to the surface of messages, and it moves quickly into mental functioning and communication as they take place outside of the direct awareness of senders and/ or receivers. The methods we use, both consciously and unconsciously, to encode disturbing raw messages are clarified and illustrated. The use of trigger decoding and its many ramifications are then discussed in detail.[...]"
