Resilience Workbook: Essential Skills to Recover from Stress, Trauma and Adversity


Product Description

Published USA, 2017
Glenn Schiraldi quotes an old African saying in the introduction to his new book: 'You know how well the roof has been built only when the rain comes'. Schiraldi's research has led him to conclude that internal strengths and coping mechanisms better predict who will triumph over adversity than external circumstances. These strengths and coping mechanisms - the so-called protective factors - form the content of this book. The author methodically takes the reader through the three critical steps of resilience training: gaining a basic understanding of the critical issues of resilience; helping the reader determine his or her own level of resilience; and guiding the reader through step-by-step exercises to build and maintain a resilient mind.

Glenn Schiraldi is based at the University of Maryland, USA.
