At some point, you are going to face something that you never asked for and never wanted.  What do you do? How do you cope?

Linda Graham, MFT, renowned psychotherapist and meditation teacher, says the answer lies in our ability to bounce back, also known as “resilience.” Our capacities for resilience are innate in the brain, hard-wired in by evolution and with focused practice; you can learn to strengthen your resilience muscle.

Linda’s newest book, Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being offers a blue print on how to bounce back from adversity by changing your brain.

Really, change your brain? Yes, you can, and it’s the traumas and tragedies of life that have the greatest capacity to create positive change.

In this interview, Linda reveals:

  • The 6 C’s of coping
  • What it means to do one scary thing a day
  • How to rewire unhelpful patterns through exercises that can increase our resilience capacity, and
  • How to rebound from adversity back to our center

Linda’s work draws upon the latest discoveries of neuroscience to teach us how to live effectively and peacefully in our daily lives.  You can learn more about her fascinating work at www.lindagraham-mft.net.
