No matter how insulated we are by wealth or friends we can all expect to undergo some form of loss, failure or disappointment. The common reaction is to bear it as best we can - some do this better than others - and move on with life. Christopher Hamilton proposes a different response to adversity. Focusing on the arenas of family, love, illness and death, he explores constructive ways to deal with adversity and embrace it to derive unique insight into our condition. Offering examples from history, literature and science, he suggests how we might recognize it as a precious source of enlightenment, shaping our very existence.

Helping Clients Deal with Adversity by Changing Their Attitudes: A Concise Therapist Guide provides an outline for therapists wishing to help clients deal with life’s adversities by encouraging them to change their attitudes. Divided in two parts, this book first provides a thorough, but concise, introduction to attitude-based approach to therapy, then applies these ideas to therapy. By redefining established concepts of ‘rational’ and ‘irrational’ beliefs in terms of the ‘rigidity’ and ‘extremity’ of client attitudes, Professor Dryden puts forward a language and an approach that is more acceptable to both clients and therapists. Helping Clients Deal with Adversity by Changing Their Attitudes will be a great asset to clinical and counselling psychologists, counsellors, and psychotherapists as well as trainees in these areas. It will be particularly of interest to CBT practitioners and students who do not cover REBT in their training, but are looking for a concise guide to how its attitudinal focus can be understood and applied in clinical practice.

You lost your job. Your son ran away. A loved one just died from cancer. Your best friend is getting a divorce. The list is endless. Adversity is a reality that no one can avoid. Everyone asks why when adversity strikes. Yet Dr. Stanley contends, "As much as we all want to know the answer to the why question, it is really not the most significant question. The real question each of us needs to ask is, 'How should I respond?'" How to Handle Adversity helps you learn to Ask the right questions about adversity Become a comfort to others Rediscover the faithfulness of God Deal with pride and weakness Look at adversity from God's perspective Glorify God in your adversity If you are a child of God whose heart's desire is to see God glorified through you, adversity will not put you down for the count. There will be those initial moments of shock and confusion. But the man or woman who has God's perspective on this life and the life to come will always emerge victorious! ?Charles Stanley

Have you ever struggled in life? Well of course you have, we all have. Sometimes we have seen misfortune coming but at other times it hits us completely out of the blue. Misfortune can hit us in our home life; it can hit us in our working life, even in our leisure. It is how we deal with misfortune that will enable us to not just overcome obstacles but to grow with the experience; this is called resilience, the ability to bounce back from adversity; the ability to see obstacles more as challenges; the ability to see opportunity where others see doom and gloom. But why do some people appear more resilient than others and can you actually learn to become more resilient? Have you ever wanted to be more like those other people who appear to be more resilient? Do you want to cope better in moments of adversity? Do you want to be able to excel in your chosen career path? Every Cloud.....And developing your resilience skills is aimed at helping you to increase and develop your resilience skills. There are no magic wands or gimmicks involved but there are lots of evidence, lessons and tips that all of us can benefit from. The book has been written from personal experience of dealing with adversity, research into the resilience of others and from a professional coaching perspective. If you have a desire to become more resilient, whether it is in the workplace, or in any other environment in which you would like to be stronger then you can increase and development your resilience skills, starting from today. By becoming more resilient in life you will not only deal with moments of adversity it a calmer and more effective way but you will find that in every day activities you will be more confident. With the additional confidence you find in increasing your levels of resilience you will begin to increase your levels of success in other aspects of your life. As a coach I focus on developing resilience skills as I see these as the centre of all our daily activities. I believe in reality. It's great to have dreams and ambitions but quite often our journey does not run smooth (in fact more often than not) and it's how we deal with the challenges that enable us to either build towards our goals or to stay as we are and stagnate or to give up completely. Every Cloud..... also has a fable within it, a short story demonstrating in a fictional way how to overcome adversity despite setbacks. Storytelling is a major learning tool for all of us to share in. Stories, whether it be Charles Dickens, The Brothers Grimm or anyone who read teach us important lessons in life and as such they help us to gain valuable lessons about resilience through the eyes of others. They also help us to understand that we are not alone, everyone has to deal with moments of adversity from one extreme to another. Every Cloud....also contains case studies of people who have had to deal with extreme adversity in their lives. These people are amongst the bravest people to have ever lived. There is not always a happy ending for the people highlighted in these case studies but without question they demonstrate high level resilience skills in cases of extreme adversity. You will be able to use the skills within 'Every Cloud...' and as you do you will become more focused on your goals; more confident in dealing with people and disciplined with your approach to everyday tasks.

Married only two years; living life to the fullest; each day becoming more exciting and satisfying as time passes by. Then suddenly, unexpectedly, our world came crashing down hard. I was so tempted to cry, "why me", but I knew the answer to that question. Why not me? What made me so different from anyone else. There was a target painted on my back, which had been there for more than 30 years. I was in his sights and at every opportunity he took a stab at me. But I had learned through the years that circumstances do not make the person, they merely reveal who they really are. Therefore, my question became, "Lord what are you trying to teach me?" He answered and many of the answers are found between these pages. There may even be some there for you. Open them up and take a look. Now!

Normally, we come to the world from parents who are not educated in the way they raise us. Often, our parents dump their pathology on us, and keep us struggling in our lives to free ourselves from such burdens. Following that, we enter the outside world and we observe a lot of dysfunctions in society. We then continue to sail through the journey of our lives with painful dysfunctions. We become confused, frustrated, less happy, and disappointed in ourselves and in the world around us, because we have not being taught or guided to discover who we are, and to know our true essence. We have not been provided the right tools to manage our lives effectively. The way we learned to do things is merely trial and error. Furthermore, among all other species, human beings take longer to be independent from parents or caregivers. We need more time to mature so we can rely on ourselves. Therefore, a book such as this can be useful to guide us through the labyrinth of our lives.

Here, at last, is a book brimming with the good news of raising children—the basic reassuring news about happiness and unconditional love, about enduring family connections and kids who grow up right. Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., father of three and a clinical psychiatrist, has thought long and hard about what makes children feel good about themselves and the world they live in. Now, in The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness, Dr. Hallowell shares his findings with all of us who care about children. As Dr. Hallowell argues, we don’t need statistical studies or complicated expert opinions to raise children. What we do need is love, wonder, and the confidence to trust our instincts. This inspiring book outlines a 5-step plan that all parents can use in giving their children the gift of happiness that will last a lifetime. Connection, play, practice, mastery, and recognition: as fundamental as these five concepts are, they hold the key to raising children with healthy self-esteem, moral awareness, and spiritual values. Dr. Hallowell explores each step in depth and shows how they work together to foster trust, respect, and joy. Privilege, wealth, and expensive “extras” are not necessary for happiness—there are many stories here of children who have overcome poverty, abandonment, and shocking deprivation to find true fulfillment. Dr. Hallowell encourages us as parents to reconnect with the moments in our own childhoods that made a difference; he explores the impact of genetics and environmental factors on the inner workings of a child’s mind; and he discusses how activities like team sports, community service, religious observance, and household chores can foster a child’s sense of mastery. Like the works of T. Berry Brazelton and Benjamin Spock, The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness is infused with the wisdom and humanity of a doctor who truly loves and understands children. Writing with the warmth of a friend and the authority of an expert, Dr. Hallowell gives us a book at once practical and exuberant, joyous and informative, eye-opening and reassuring. Ultimately, this book is a celebration of childhood and of the magic that happens between parents and the children they love.
