The Power of Resilience
In this breakthrough guide, the authors show adults how to call forth and nurture the power of resilience in themselves. Writing with the authority of a half century of clinical psychology practice, they explain how "negative scripts"--repetitive, self-defeating ways of thinking and behaving--can lead to hopelessness, depression, and anxiety. Using real-life, moving stories from their work, they tell readers how to rewrite those scripts and cultivate inner strength and optimism in themselves and in those around them. And they propose powerful lessons on how to increase our abilities for empathy, problem solving, self-discipline, selfawareness, self-acceptance, and self-confidence.
