Resilience from Excellent Positive Psychology Resource
|The Renaissance part of my retirement I’m enjoying a lot. One example, a recommendation from the same friend who sent me the “Celebrating your new office furniture!” card (a hammock): Wonderworks: the 25 Most Powerful Inventions in the History of Literature: a brilliant exploration of the development of “technologies” in literature – serenity elevator, empathy generator, sorrow resolver – that help us cope with very human experiences of grief, fear, anger, intimacy, wonder, always with a succinct explanation of how this “technology” works in our brains. The author, Angus Fletcher, is both a professor of literature as well as a neuroscientist and this book is really exciting and fun.|
Not so much fun is the admin de-cluttering, a full seven years’ worth. (Those seven years blissfully-stressfully busy working with clients and teaching hither and yon and beyond.)
However, I do keep re-discovering excellent resources (and memories to be treasured). This morning, an excellent series on Resilience from positive psychology.com in the Netherlands. Published pre-pandemic, I found them online at the beginning of the pandemic, downloaded them, read them, integrated them into my own teaching, and then filed them and forgot about them. Until now
They are excellent and completely relevant today. Easy to download, easy to read, understand, and incorporate into your own coping styles now. You can click on any link and be richly rewarded.
