The Resilience Factor by Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatté
The Resilience Factor: Resilience is a crucial ingredient–perhaps the crucial ingredient–to a happy, healthy life. More than anything else, it's what determines how high we rise above what threatens to wear us down, from battling an illness, to bolstering a marriage, to carrying on after a national crisis. Everyone needs resilience, and in this book, two expert psychologists share seven proven techniques for enhancing our capacity to weather even the cruelest setbacks.
Authors Karen Reivich and Andrew Shatté will teach you to:
• Cast off harsh self-criticisms and negative self-images
• Navigate through the fallout of any kind of crisis
• Cope with grief and anxiety
• Overcome obstacles in relationships, parenting, or on the job
• Achieve greater physical health
• Bolster optimism, take chances, and embrace life
