Some individuals emerge from grim experiences stronger in mind and spirit than others who suffered the same fate. In this book, Michael Neenan suggests that it is the meanings that we attach to events, and not the events themselves, that determine our reactions to them; this is why different people can react to the same event in a variety of ways. Developing Resilience shows how people can find constructive ways of dealing with their difficulties by using the techniques of cognitive behaviour therapy as well as listening to the wisdom of those who have prevailed over adversity. This book provides useful guidance and advice on topics including: managing negative emotions distinguishing between what is within and outside of your control learning from past experiences developing self-belief increasing your level of frustration tolerance maintaining a resilient outlook. This book will be essential for anyone trying to find constructive ways forward in difficult times, as well as counsellors, coaches and therapists looking for guidance in helping their clients.

Mit Sokrates und Co. auf Entdeckungsreise zu sich selbst Philosophie muss keine verstaubte Wissenschaft sein, die verschrobene Exzentriker in ihrem Elfenbeinturm praktizieren! Sie kann vielmehr zur unerschöpflichen Quelle der Inspiration werden, um die Herausforderungen des Lebens zu meistern. So haben es uns die großen Philosophen der Antike eindrucksvoll vor Augen geführt. Ob Sokrates, Aristoteles oder Diogenes – jeder von ihnen steht für einen nachvollziehbaren und gangbaren Weg, wie der Mensch zu sich selbst finden, ein erfülltes Leben führen und in Einklang mit anderen Menschen leben kann. Die Essenz ihrer Lehren ist auch für das moderne Leben richtungweisend. Um dies zu verdeutlichen, bettet Jules Evans seine Darstellung in reale Geschichten heutiger Menschen ein: Menschen, die mithilfe der Philosophie selbst schwierigste Situationen mit Mut und Würde bestanden. Dieses Buch bietet Philosophie für die Straße, den Arbeitsplatz, für Freundschaft, Liebe – eine Philosophie für Jung und Alt.

Michael Neenan clearly and accessibly introduces the 30 Distinctive Features of cognitive behavioural coaching (CBC), an approach which applies the principles of CBT to coaching. Cognitive Behavioural Coaching: Distinctive Features sets out the key theoretical and practical features of CBT and discusses how they integrate into the generic model of coaching. The book covers the four key elements in developing a coaching relationship, provides psychological and practical problem-solving models, shows how to deal with stuck points in coaching and identifies which individuals are unsuitable for CBC. As well as providing research evidence to support the effectiveness of CBC, the book demonstrates the smooth transition of CBT into CBC, and coach–coachee dialogues are interspersed throughout the text to show CBC in action. Cognitive Behavioural Coaching: Distinctive Features will be particularly useful to CBT therapists interested in adding coaching to their practice. It will also appeal to coaches in practice and in training and other professionals in coaching roles seeking an effective and straightforward coaching model.
