This professional training will be taught by Linda Graham, MFT, covering the latest research and clinical training in the emerging fields of applied neuroscience and self-directed neuroplasticity. Linda is the author of the acclaimed Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being. While many therapists have heard about the revolution that has taken place in neuroscience and how it is impacting the clinical practice of psychotherapy, most are unsure where to start. Not being trained as neuroscientists, many of us are a bit wary about the brain and its relevance in helping clients who are suffering and in search of more adaptive ways of living. Linda will provide the theory and clinical tools that you need to start applying the revolutionary discoveries in the fields of neuroscience and neuroplasticity in your work with clients. She removes the veil and takes therapists of all levels and orientations into the essential theory and application which is most relevant in helping our clients in very practical ways.

Grow Your Grit—How You Can Develop the Critical Ingredient for Success

Grit—defined as our perseverance and passion for long-term goals—is now recognized as one of the key determinants for achievement and life satisfaction. In an age that provides us with a never-ending stream of distractions and quick-and-easy solutions, how do we build this essential quality? “This book is designed to help you screen out the spam of life and cultivate authentic grit in every setting,” writes Caroline Miller.

With Getting Grit, this bestselling author brings you an information-rich and practical guide for developing the qualities needed to persevere over obstacles—not just toughness and passion, but also humility, patience, and kindness. Join her as she shares research-based insights and practices on:

  • Learning grit—how you can enhance your willpower and rewire your brain for resilience
  • The key traits of gritty people—what the latest research reveals
  • The three kinds of “false grit” and how to recognize them in yourself
  • The courage to fail—tools for turning your setbacks into your greatest teachers
  • Daring to dream big—guidance for building your capacity to take risks and aim higher
  • No one succeeds alone—tips for gathering your support team and inspiring others
  • The role of self-compassion, gratitude, and spirituality in building grit

“I’ve come to believe that gritty behavior is a positive force that does more than help us rise to our own challenges,” writes Caroline Miller. “When we embody the best qualities of grit, we become a role model for others who want to become better people, and help them awaken greater possibilities for themselves.” Whether you’re seeking to grow beyond your limits at work, at home, on the sporting field, or in any leadership role, Getting Grit is a powerful resource to help you bring out the qualities that will help you succeed and thrive.
