Shift Happens; Learning to Bounce Back after Disappointment, Difficulty, Even Disaster!
Linda Graham, LMFT
Dealing effectively with the challenges and crises of life is the core of our resilience and well-being. Helping clients developing flexible and adaptive strategies for coping with everyday disappointments and extraordinary disasters is the heart of the therapeutic process.
Modern neuroscience illuminates how the brain encodes its strategies for coping in the first place. In this presentation, clinicians will learn to help clients reverse the impact of stress and trauma, come out of anxiety, depression, addictions, grief, loneliness, guilt and shame, and rewire the inner critic. Clients can learn to deepen their self-compassion and empathy, connect to inner resources and to the relationships that are healthy and nourishing, and through, mindful awareness and reflection, discern options and make wise choices that lead to thriving and well-being.
Linda Graham, MFT, is an experienced psychotherapist in private practice in Corte Madera.

She is the author of Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being, winner of the 2013 Books for a Better Life award and the 2014 Better Books for a Better World award.
