    Cheryl Bradshaw’s The Resilience Workbook for Teens is a brilliant follow up to her first book How to Like Yourself. At a time where access to mental health services still remains inadequate especially for adolescents, this workbook serves as a valuable resource to help cultivate resilience.

At a time where access to mental health services still remains inadequate especially for adolescents, this workbook serves as a valuable resource to help cultivate resilience. The guide is easy to follow, provides practical solutions and activities, and is written in a tone that is both compassionate and hopeful. Cheryl acknowledges the pain that young people face but she also explains in a straightforward fashion how to overcome the obstacles of life and come out stronger and better. The workbook spans 120 pages and is subdivided into 5 overall goals: Adapting to Change; Overcoming Adversity; Finding Your Strength; Keeping Perspective; Staying Focused. Each goal is broken down further into specific chapters which focus on a particular topic. Cheryl takes the time to explain the subject in language that is designed to facilitate understanding. She then provides a practical activity for the readers to try and offers an extension to further explore the topic at hand. It is clear that Cheryl is a talented and knowledgeable psychotherapist with a flair for relating and reaching young adults. Her latest book demonstrates that she is up to date with strategies in mental health and this workbook should be a go to for parents, professionals who work with teens, and anyone who needs a reminder that life will be ok. Highly recommended.

    I was excited to get to review this book when Netgalley offered it because I have a similar Resilience workbook from about six years ago. Overall, I was pleased with the content. It offered exercises in increasing difficulty and gave the reader/user a lot to think about. Bradshaw states fairly early that she is using a particular scale for checking resilience, and basing resiliency on the level of 10 correlated and predictive items: self-efficacy, sense of humor, secure attachment to others, the I was excited to get to review this book when Netgalley offered it because I have a similar Resilience workbook from about six years ago. Overall, I was pleased with the content. It offered exercises in increasing difficulty and gave the reader/user a lot to think about. Bradshaw states fairly early that she is using a particular scale for checking resilience, and basing resiliency on the level of 10 correlated and predictive items: self-efficacy, sense of humor, secure attachment to others, the ability to adapt to change, commitment, control, thinking of change as a challenge, patience, ability to tolerate stress and pain, and optimism and faith. Teen or not, these are good items to do a mental checklist of how well you handle them. Sometimes in a workbook, the reading feels relaxed. However, as a scientist and educator, I greatly appreciated the use of citations throughout the workbook. Unfortunately, while this workbook is an excellent resource, I found a few things not quite cogent. First, the "house of cards" analogy doesn't really work. I don't know any person under the age of 40 who has built a literal house of cards without some sort of group or institutional setting. In fact, a widely viewed Netflix series called "House of Cards" is more likely to be thought of than the literal building of a house with cards. Second, while Bradshaw encourages drawing at the beginning of the workbook, and has one or two exercises that require drawing, drawing as a way to process instead of using words is not reinforced, somewhat contrary to the early suggestion of drawing if one wants. She could use reminders every other exercise or so that drawing could also be effective. Third, throughout the workbook, Bradshaw gives reasons and examples of why a teen might be feeling the way they do. These likely come from her familiarity with teens from her teaching and counseling. The problem is that it leaves no room for bad brain chemistry nor do people - teens and adults - always realize they feel bad about themselves because someone is abusing them emotionally. Leaving room for feeling bad because you just do and learning how to cope is especially necessary in these situations. Someone in that position may feel like this workbook isn't meant for them because they don't have the reasons or examples given to do so. Fourth, some exercises, e.g. the ice cube test, are ableist. As someone with arthritis for my entire life, asking me to plunge my hands into ice when they constantly ache regardless of anything, and I have only so many spoons for using my hands, is unkind and unhelpful. The triggered response in my brain is not the same as the triggered response in someone who lives without constant pain. Because of the way the book is set up, the reader should do all the exercises. Skipping one, even justified, feels shitty to someone trying to get better. Sadly, the workbook is now causing a problem rather than solving it. I understand the author is trying to equate emotional and physical pain, but it's a dire correlation to those constant physical pain trying to at least help their own emotional pain. Finally, my last concern is I am not sure our brains really work the way the author sometimes suggests. I'm not a biologist but it seems incorrectly described. However, in this book for teens, it probably doesn't matter. The simplifications make it easier to understand, and will hopefully be helpful. Despite these five specific concerns, I believe the workbook will help many teens. Other than a few examples that relate to teens, anybody could go through most of these exercises to help grow their resiliency.

    Excellent for developing an essential wellness skill! We live in a very competitive society with chronic stress, an increase in anxiety disorders and depression is observed. In addition, adolescents are maturing their social skills, defining their place in society, which can put strong emotional pressure on them. Resilience and self-awareness are very valuable and important skills for life, since they are a determining factor in personal growth, empowerment and to advance in life's challenges.

In addition, adolescents are maturing their social skills, defining their place in society, which can put strong emotional pressure on them. Resilience and self-awareness are very valuable and important skills for life, since they are a determining factor in personal growth, empowerment and to advance in life's challenges. Having a resource like this at home is invaluable, especially when you don't have an adequate mental health service. It is carefully written, like a well-structured practical manual, in a strategic sequence to develop each aspect involved in the execution of this skill. Cheryl M Bradshaw, in her deep understanding of the process adolescents experience, addresses them in direct, empathetic, and optimistic language. This workbook is designed for adolescents to work on their own, but it is recommended to be accompanied by the tutors and / or by a therapeutic process if their condition requires it. The relationship with oneself is the most important, on this depends the quality of our social and personal life. Knowing yourself defines a lot the success and achievements that we achieve in our lives. In this sense, this book provides knowledge of self-care and self-awareness, to apply in emotionally intense situations. In addition to goal setting tools and the ability to transform behavior towards a more adaptive one. My sincere appreciation to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book

    Bradshaw delivers a book full of activities and perspectives commonly employed in counselling sessions, but in the easily accessible and affordable format of a workbook. Unlike many books in the self-help category - which can often be overwhelming, especially when you are just beginning on the journey to self-improvement - this book provides short, simple activities to help you on your way.

Unlike many books in the self-help category - which can often be overwhelming, especially when you are just beginning on the journey to self-improvement - this book provides short, simple activities to help you on your way. While all of the chapters are of equally great importance, the format of this book makes it easy to jump around to activities that suit your needs/goals or your mental energy on a given day, and to stop and focus on practicing one thought process/activity, then come back to new activities in the book later without feeling lost. It's written in incredibly accessible language good for a broad age range (not just teens!), and works well as a standalone resource, or as an aid for those actively in counselling to continue practicing at home and remember what they learned in session. Whether you are just looking for strategies for self-improvement or have significant mental health struggles, there is something in this book for you!

    I'm pretty sure many teens could benefit from this workbook. It takes small steps in aiding teens cope with growing up and dealing with life issues. Chapters and tasks can be done in any order needed. School counselors, ad others who work with teens would do well to take a peek at this book, it might prove useful to their charges. I would recommend the book in a heartbeat to any teen I thought was in need. Thoughtful and informative, this book is written in language teens will understand.

    As a mom, I have found this book to be easy to read and follow along with. I find that it allows you to work though the chapters in any order. The examples are very helpful and simple to read, which allows the application areas of the workbook to ignite the brain to explore and expand into new ways of thinking. It left me feeling very empowered and wanting to express myself in more of a positive way.

    I think this book would be very helpful for teens struggling to deal with things in their life and would be great to have in therapy and counseling offices that work with teens. I voluntarily read and received a free ARC copy of this title through NetGalley in exchange for a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    As a high school teacher I am always looking for resources that will support my students in the development of skills. This workbook provides theory and a variety of activities for the students to practice and reflect upon their learning. My favourite activity is the ice cube activity to simulate “flight or fight”.
