The P.R.I.D.E. Factor
How To Bounce Back When You Think You Can't
Since the terrorist attacks of September 11th, the American Psychological Association has devoted itself to teaching about the concept of “resilience.” Attention is now being paid to recovery not only from disasters, but from set backs and adversities in ordinary life. Research has shown how the ability to be “hardy” or to “bounce back” can be essential to one’s health and longevity.
Our book is based on the concept that there are basically three potential crices in life.
1. “I shouldn’t have done that”
2. “You shouldn’t have done that (to me)”
3. “Life shouldn’t have done that (to me)”
This book gives advice on how to sustain, rekindle or revitalize one’s self-esteem and motivation after episodes of failure, illness, injury or disappointment. It is also very helpful for patients to read who are currently in treatment, be it medical or psychological. It also gives advice on how to raise children who are resilient to the inevitable setbacks of life.
Our book is written in an engaging, humorous way, with many interesting stories as well as concrete directions, and a set of tools on how to “bounce back” after various kinds of life reversals, on a continuum of “everyday” to disastrous, such as September 11th.
The book also includes inspiring interviews with people, some famous, and some not, who have survived life’s setbacks. One of these is David Lander, who played “Squiggy” on the Laverne and Shirley show who contracted MS and had to give up his acting career. He reveals his story of how he wrote his book “Falling Down Laughing” and had to find a way to go on with his life, with pride.
