Editors: Kathryn M. Gow (Consulting Psychologist, Regional Australia), Marek J. Celinski (Private Practice, Toronto, Canada)
Book Description:
While our first book in this trilogy on resilience, resourcefulness, coping and recovery is focused more on the positivist outlook on life’s challenges, and the third book walks us through the heavy going of surviving trauma, this book focuses more on the 'know how', intra and inter psychically, about particular events that occur in life and how and why individuals react to them in different ways. Whether it is about internal resources, knowing how to tap into external resources, or how we determine that we are on the right path in life, this book examines interesting ideas and studies in the field of coping and survival.
