Product Details


“Expertly and effectively written, organized and presented, “Resilience: How We Find New Strength At Times of Stress” is an extraordinary and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, community, and college/university library Self-Help/Self-Improvement collections and personal reading lists for anyone having to deal with Mood Disorders; Post-traumatic Stress Disorder; and Anxiety Disorders in this current time of pandemic, economic collapse, and divisive political activism.” Wisconsin Bookwatch

 “Frederic Flach, tried to pinpoint the attitudes and attributes that resilient people have in common—the psychological sources of the bounce-back factor… which [he] believes most of us can cultivate.” —Robert Rodale, Prevention Magazine

“Part practical and part inspirational…. Written with clarity…contains short, readable examples for all aspects of life…useful to lay persons in times of crisis.”
—The New England Journal of Medicine

“Why are some of us permanently damaged by personal setbacks or traumatic change while others pull themselves together and plow on, better prepared for future crises? The answer, says Flach in this guide to handling the endemic stresses of modern life, is ‘resilience’….[A] coherent theory, presented here with considerable skill.”
—Kirkus Reviews

“Frederic Flach’s most important book to date. Here he brings together his preeminent understanding of psychotherapy and psychiatry drawn from thirty years of practice…. The result is a very helpful and insightful book with numerous case examples…. A humane and optimistic treatise recommended to all those who have interest in understanding their personal journey and their destiny.”
—Peter C. Whybrow, M.D., Director of the Neuropsychiatric Institute and Executive Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA

“Well-written and vital ways of coping with stress, recovering from disruption, and creating a process by which one can not only survive catastrophe but can escape with flexibility, faith, and the will to survive.”
—Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology at Saybrook Graduate School, San Francisco

“[Resilience] is the greatest teacher’s guide I’ve seen for helping all teachers transform their classrooms into resilient learning environments in which young people, especially those under stress, can discover the path from insecurity—to learning—to creativity.”
—Archie E. Lapoint, Former Executive Director of the National Assessment of Educational Progress
