Description

What is resilience, and how can you build it? In The Resilience Workbook, Glenn Schiraldi-author of The Self-Esteem Workbook-offers invaluable insight and outlines essential skills to help you bounce back from setbacks and cultivate a growth mindset.

Why do some people sail through life's storms, while others are knocked down? Resilience is the key. Resilience is the ability to recover from difficult experiences, such as death of loved one, job loss, serious illness, terrorist attacks, or even just daily stressors and challenges. Resilience is the strength of body, mind, and character that enables people to respond well to adversity. In short, resilience is the cornerstone of mental health.

Combining evidence-based approaches including positive psychology, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), mindfulness, and relaxation, The Resilience Workbook will show you how to bounce back and thrive in any difficult situation. You'll learn how to harness the power of your brain's natural neuroplasticity; manage strong, distressing emotions; and improve mood and overall well-being. You'll also discover powerful skills to help you prevent and recover from stress-related conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, anger, and substance abuse disorders.

When the going gets tough, you need real, proven-effective skills to manage your stress and heal from setbacks. The comprehensive and practical exercises in this workbook will help you cultivate resilience, stay calm under pressure, and face all of life's challenges.

Review quote

"The importance of resilience in sports, the workplace, and life is far from a new concept. However, Schiraldi has provided one of the first truly comprehensive overviews of this critical human strength. Filled with practical advice, drills, skills, exercises, and real-life anecdotes, this guide offers us mental armor to fight the simple life challenges and daily frustrations that confront us all, in addition to the more serious and sobering anxiety, stress-provoking, and life-threatening challenges. The take-home message underscores the importance of building a mental and emotional structure that can weather a storm, and this book provides a well-researched and highly practical blueprint."
--Spencer Wood, PhD, member of the Association for Applied Sport Psychology, and president of Icebox Athlete Mental Skills & Toughness Training
