Resilience is our innate capacity to face and handle life's challenges, whether everyday disappointments or extraordinary disasters. Bouncing Back integrates brain science, relational psychology and mindfulness practices to help you change for the better old patterns of coping encoded in your neural circuity and to develop new ways to respond to pressures and tragedies quickly, adaptively, and effectively.

Praise for Bouncing Back

Rick Hanson Buddha's Brain Hardwiring Happiness

Creative in its groundbreaking integration of ancient contemplative wisdom, relational psychology, and modern neuroscience - and supremely useful in its compassionate focus on what will help you here and now.

- Rick Hanson, author of Buddha's Brain and Hardwiring Happiness, from the foreword to Bouncing Back

We each have the capacity to meet the most challenging life circumstances with deep intelligence and a courageous, open heart. Yet when our resilience is diminished, we suffer. In her pioneering new book, Linda Graham explores the psychological, relational, and neurological dynamics of resilience and offers a rich array of meditations and attentional practices that can help us navigate everything from daily stressors to deep trauma. Written with great lucidity and compassion, this book helps us cultivate a heart that is ready for anything.

Linda Graham has written the ultimate handbook for dealing with life’s inevitable bumps, challenges, and, yes, even traumas. It is both practical and inspiring: Graham draws equally on modern science — neuroscience, psychology, and sociology — and contemplative philosophy to create a must-have resource for all those looking to make a full comeback.

We all know what it's like to feel stuck. Grounded in solid neuroscience and relational psychology, bouncing Back is the perfect guidebook to help us not only get through hard times but develop the capacity for thriving in their midst. With extraordinary clarity, empathy, and depth, Linda Graham shows us how to navigate through life's challenges with confidence, trust, and the feeling of the wind in our sails.

- James Baraz, coauthor of Awakening Joy

Kristin Neff

Linda Graham provides a masterful integration of novel research findings in neuroscience and psychology with deep clinical insight into optimal human functioning. A joy to read and full of easy-to-follow exercises, this book offers a deceptively simple yet rich and complex road map for building and maintaining emotional resilience.” — Kristin Neff, PhD, associate professor of human development and culture at the University of Texas at Austin and author of Self-Compassion: The Proven Power of Being Kind to Yourself
