Banyen's Description: 

Resilience is the learned capacity to cope with any level of adversity, from the small annoyances of daily life to 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 to help you develop somatic, emotional, relational, and reflective intelligence — the skills you need to confidently and effectively cope.

We’ll begin at the beginning and look at how we develop the capacity for resilience in the first place—or don’t—and then what tools and techniques we can reliably use to build or recover our resilience…  to cope with anything, anything at all…

 

Because resilience is truly recoverable, I have designed this toolkit specifically as a brain-training program to help you strengthen your capacities to bounce back. You will find 130 experiential exercises that will train you—and your brain—to steady or right yourself no matter what is happening around you, to respond skillfully to the most common and the most challenging external stressors, and help you work through any negative internal messages you may be believing about your ability to cope with those stressors…

 

They are organized by the five different kinds of intelligence that are foundational to resilience: somatic, emotional, relational within ourselves, relational with others, and reflective…You can apply these processes to any level of disruption to your resilience, from barely a wobble to serious sorrows and struggles to a potentially traumatizing “too much.” Practiced regularly, they will build your resilience, strength, and wisdom, enhancing your well-being for the long haul.

“Linda Graham combines her wealth of knowledge of ancient practices and neuroscience with years of clinical work to create a masterful guide to building flexibility and stability — qualities essential to resilience. Resilience offers a rich array of practices for navigating both the ordinary and extraordinary challenges of being human.” Deb Dana, author of The Polyvagal Theory in Therapy

We need skills for coming back from hard times, and that’s what this book is all about. So many of us today struggle to find emotional balance and to heal the web of our human connections in the face of increasing anxiety and disorder. This book, with its astonishingly wide range of resources, could not have come at a better time.” Ann Weiser Cornell,   author of The Power of Focusing
