Some individuals emerge from grim experiences stronger in mind and spirit than others who suffered the same ordeal. In this updated and revised edition, Michael Neenan focuses on the meanings we attach to life’s adversities in order to understand how we respond to them. This is why different people can react to the same adverse event in a variety of ways such as fighting back or crumbling. Different meanings of what constitutes resilience are also discussed and the author takes issue with the simplistic view of it as bouncing back from adversity which suggests the absence of struggle and emotional pain as well as underestimating how long the process of self-righting can sometimes take. Developing Resilience shows how people can find constructive ways of dealing with hard times by using the ideas and techniques of cognitive behavioural therapy as well as drawing on the viewpoints and experiences of other writers presented here. This book provides useful guidance and advice on topics including: • managing negative emotions in difficult times • using an assets and liabilities model to understand resilient behaviour • distinguishing between what’s within and outside of your control • identifying and changing attitudes that undermine resilience building • developing self-belief • increasing your level of frustration tolerance • maintaining a resilient outlook. This book will be essential reading for anyone interested in learning more about resilience as well as for mental health professionals, coaches and therapists looking for guidance in helping their clients to cope better with adversity.

Behandeln Sie kleine emotionale Verletzungen, bevor sie zu großen Wunden werden. Auf ein aufgeschlagenes Knie kleben wir ein Pflaster. Was aber unternehmen wir, um die seelischen Verletzungen zu behandeln, die wir im Alltag erleiden? Oft fehlen uns dafür wirksame Mittel. Gleich zum Therapeuten zu gehen ist nicht immer sinnvoll, denn viele seelische Verletzungen sind nicht so schwer, dass sie professionelle Hilfe erfordern. Vergleichbar einem Medizinschränkchen mit Verbandszeug, Salben und Schmerzmitteln für die Grundversorgung körperlicher Alltagsverletzungen möchte dieses Buch eine Hausapotheke für die kleineren seelischen Verletzungen sein, die wir uns im täglichen Leben holen. Guy Winch führt Sie Schritt für Schritt in die Behandlung der häufigsten psychischen Verwundungen ein: Zurückweisung, Einsamkeit, Verlust, Schuldgefühle, Grübeln, Scheitern und ein geringes Selbstwertgefühl – hier lernen Sie, wie Sie mit emotionalen Wunden wirksam umgehen und so zu mehr Resilienz und Selbstvertrauen finden. »So sollte Selbsthilfe sein – effektiv und heilsam. In Emotionale Erste Hilfe findet jeder Techniken zur Selbstfürsorge für die eigene seelische Hausapotheke.« – Meg Selig, Psychology Today

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.
