Everyone knows what it's like to be knocked off center, to have your inner sense of balance and centeredness, your sense of knowing how the world works and how to cope with life's unexpected curve balls, lost, at least temporarily. Whether it's from a critical comment from the boss, or from actually losing a job, even worse, losing someone we love or causing the death of someone else in a car accident, life continually dishes out challenges.

Resilience is the learned capacity to cope with any level of adversity, whether it's the small annoyances of daily life or the struggles and sorrows that break our hearts. Resilience is essential for surviving and thriving in a world full of troubles and tragedies, and it is completely trainable and recoverable-when we know how.

In Resilience, Linda Graham offers clear guidance in developing skills of somatic, emotional, relational, and reflective intelligence that deepen the reader's trust in their own competence-and effectiveness-in learning to cope with life's inevitable challenges and crises.

Bouncing Back: Rewire the Brain for Resilience and Post-Traumatic Growth - Seminar on DVD

Clients seek our help in coping with the difficulties, even disasters, in their lives. Sometimes clients' coping strategies are defensive, maladaptive, seemingly “stuck” and intractable, blocking their learning and derailing their resilience.

New research in post-traumatic growth is teaching us how to help clients fully recover from the traumas and tragedies that turn their lives upside down and shatter their faith in life being worth living.

Join bestselling author and international trainer, Linda Graham, as she teaches you the modern neuroscience and behavioral science techniques that help clients rewire dysfunctional patterns. She will show you how to create new more adaptive coping strategies in ways that are safe, efficient, and effective. You can help clients successfully create the shifts that change their brains, thus change their behaviors, thus change their lives.

In this experiential workshop, you'll learn techniques to help clients:
* Manage stress and recover from trauma
* Heal toxic shame and retire the inner critic
* Antidote the brain's negativity bias and regain equilibrium from which healing and growth can occur
* Strengthen social-emotional engagement, prime the brain for learning and growth
* Strengthen executive functioning and foster resilience
* Recover from anxiety, depression, grief, loneliness, guilt
* Discover new meaning, community, fulfillment
* Come to more clarity and discernment in decision making
* Recover a sense of competency and courage to take growth-enhancing risks in life

You will help clients strengthen the functioning of the brain to not only get through hard times but to thrive in their midst!

Winner of the 2013 Books for a Better Life Acorda Wellness Award and the 2014 Silver Nautilus Book Award

Resilience is the ability to face and handle life's challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters. While resilience is innate in the brain, over time we learn unhelpful patterns, which then become fixed in our neural circuitry. But science is now revealing that what previously seemed hardwired can be rewired, and "Bouncing Back" shows us how. With powerful, time-tested exercises, Linda Graham guides us in rebuilding our core well-being and disaster-proofing our brains.
