The Little Book of Resilience is about how we can fortify our lives mentally, emotionally and physically. It is not about what happens when we get knocked down but more about what happens when we get up again. It is a book about what resilience is and how we grow and maintain it. The first step in understanding resilience is accepting what you can and cannot change. You can't change the weather but you can certainly change the way you interact with it; using an umbrella, a jacket or sunscreen. Just as you can't change your history, family, race, or past hurts and events but with the right direction and understanding you can certainly change how you look and feel about them moving forward. Life doesn't always turn out as we'd expected. It can be complex, harsh, joyful, mean, hilarious and utterly perplexing. The sooner we understand this, the sooner we will be able to cope with whatever life throws our way. For the majority of life's adversities, there is no magic pill or silver bullet - to get over anything we generally have to go through it - but if we're prepared to learn from that experience, good can certainly come from bad. We can grow to be wiser, more empathetic and understanding and from that we can create greater purpose in our lives.
Life’s journey isn’t always a stroll in the sunshine, but there are ways of weathering the storms. This pocket-sized book of heartening quotations and simple but effective tips will help you to summon your inner reserves and bounce back from adversity stronger than ever.
When a dozen young boys found themselves trapped in Tham Luang cave in June 2018 in Northern Thailand with their 25-year-old coach, their chances of survival seemed very slim. They had only a handful of snacks they'd bought for one of the boys' birthday that day, and no drinking water. Not only that, while they sat there, waiting, the level of the water in the cave was rising all the time. Also, unbeknownst to them, the oxygen level was dropping. Trapped in darkness and unaware of the desperate search efforts going on in the outside world, the Wild Boys coach, Ekkapol Chanthawong, felt it was his responsibility to do everything he could to keep them alive. One of the survival tactics he implemented was getting them all to meditate. Ekkapol had trained for ten years to be a Buddhist monk in a temple in Northern Thailand. He could meditate for an hour at a time, and knew of the countless benefits that came with such a practice. This book explains how meditation within the framework of Bhavana works, why it's something we should all be doing, and how to do it. Bhavana - which refers to mental and spiritual development - is the cultivation of wisdom and tranquility through meditation. It is the means to developing resilience and strength that will serve when it is most needed. This book makes Bhavana accessible and practical by distilling the insights of thousands of years of tradition. It integrates the teachings and practices with the most recent neuroscience of how our brains and behavior can change to give us the tools to withstand suffering and fear.

When Violence Strikes and Community Security Is Threatened
Author: Carolyn Yoder
Pubpsher: Simon and Schuster
How do we address trauma, interrupt cycles of violence, and build resilience in a turbulent world of endless wars, nationalism, othering, climate crisis, racism, pandemics, and terrorism? This fully updated edition offers a practical framework, processes, and useful insights. The traumas of our world go beyond individual or one-time events. They are collective, ongoing, and the legacy of historical injustices. How do we stay awake rather than numbing or responding violently? How do we cultivate individual and collective courage and resilience? This Little Book provides a justice-and-conflict-informed community approach to addressing trauma in nonviolent, neurobiologically sound ways that interrupt cycles of violence and meet basic human needs for justice and security. In these pages, you’ll find the core framework and tools of the internationally acclaimed Strategies for Trauma Awareness and Resilience (STAR) program developed at Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peacebuilding in response to 9/11. A startlingly helpful approach.
This book “resilience’ came to fruition after a statement was made by a member of a group “We Didn’t Believe You.” This has been a catalyst for Joan to write her memoirs. If Joan wasn’t believed as an adult; the question was asked how would a child be heard. Joan’s early memories are of happy times with family and the traditions that were created. I remember having a strong foundation of a love for the Lord. Joan knew that Jesus loved her for the Bible told her so. As a child Joan was sexually abused while sleeping in her own bed. Joan should have been safe. Joan didn’t have the words and did not tell anyone. It took fifty four years before Joan felt strong enough to report this crime to the police. Joan’s faith has been an integral part of her journey. There are many blessings that come from adversity. Through each crisis with help from others Joan has learned that there is hope for the future

A practical guide to implementing the rich theory of attachment for treating mental health challenges in children. This book both explains and illustrates how the practice of child mental health professionals can be enhanced, whatever their treatment approach, to encourage engagement, resilience, and development in children with mental health problems. Alongside practical recommendations, Daniel Hughes and Ben Gurney-Smith use dialogue from clinical work to illustrate applications of these principles from Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy as well as other attachment-based practices with parents and children. This “little book” will demystify how attachment theory—one of today’s most in-demand approaches—can actually be brought into clinical work. Topics include regulating emotional states; repairing ongoing relationships; establishing an attachment-based therapeutic relationship; accepting a child’s inner life; assessing the caregiver’s need for safety, regulation, and reflection; the importance of nonverbal and verbal conversations in facilitating secure attachment; and strengthening the mind of the child.
