Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being by Linda GrahamWinner 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.
Book Review: Resilience: Powerful Practices for Bouncing Back
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. My next-door neighbor has a big, affectionate, pound malamute named Barney and an eight-year-old granddaughter who adores him. One day, as Samantha was arriving to visit, I watched her run up to Barney to give him a hug. Barney responded exuberantly, licking her face profusely. He was simply greeting her with affection, but Samantha clearly wasn't prepared for such rough-and-tumble love: she burst into tears.
Graham is a licensed marriage and family therapist in the San Francisco Bay Area. She teaches mindful self-compassion and offers training workshops, webinars, and speaks at conferences about her experiences integrating neuroscience, mindfulness, and relationship psychology. This book is a continuation of the practices she wrote about in her first book, Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being , and incorporates all she has learned in the intervening years. After an accessible and very relatable introduction describing what we mean when we talk about resilience, Graham takes her reader through practices designed to strengthen somatic intelligence, emotional intelligence, relational intelligence within yourself, relational intelligence with others, and reflective intelligence. The final two chapters step outwards to examine the bigger picture with exercises designed to integrate all the practices presented in the previous, focused chapters.
