Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As the saying goes, its not what happens to us but how we react to it. While some suffer and seem unable to move on, others grieve and heal. The difference is resilience — the ability to face and handle life's challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters. While resilience is innate in the brain, our capacity for it can be impaired by our conditioning. Unhelpful patterns of response are learned over time and can become fixed in our neural circuitry. What neuroscience now shows is that what previously seemed hardwired can be rewired; resilience can be recovered. Bouncing Back shows how. Clear exercises and examples allow readers to rebuild their clarity, connection, competence, calm, and courage. The resulting resilience provides core well-being and can literally save relationships, jobs, and even lives.

Synopsis:

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.
