Full Description
Turn life’s challenges into a source of strength with this guide to mindfulness and self-compassion practices for post-traumatic growth.

Even in the best of circumstances, life can sometimes seem like a parade of traumatic events. The good news is we come equipped with the ability to grow from our adverse experiences. Researchers call this response “post-traumatic growth,” or PTG.

Psychologist and mindfulness educator Dr. Christopher Willard has gathered essential mind–body tools for PTG into one concise volume. After a brief crash course in the latest research on trauma and the mind–body connection, we learn to access our innate resilience through body-based practices, mindful awareness, and generating compassion for ourselves and others.

This is the first easy-access guide to handling the traumas of everyday life, with a retro-modern design that follows on the author’s popular mindfulness titles for children. With just enough of the latest research to inspire confidence in our ability to regulate our trauma responses, and in the friendly voice of a fellow human under stress, Dr. Willard kindly guides us through a variety of strategies to help us more easily “grow through what we go through.”
