Book Description

Over a decade in practice

Over more than a decade,  Beth Miller has helped hundreds of people in her therapeutic practice and  through teaching.  These  people have learned to be more resilient and survive life crises. They  have become deeper, more powerful, and more authentic human beings.

Find meaning and purpose

Packed with information and exercises, The  Woman’s Book of Resilience is a smart, often funny, book that can  help any woman thrive amid life’s ups and downs. When we cultivate  resilience, we mine the awful, or merely annoying, experiences in life  to find meaning and purpose.

An accessible and practical guide

The Woman’s Book of Resilience is an accessible, practical guide  to bouncing back. "We know that resiliency reigns because we survive to tell our tales of misfortune, trauma, abuse. Indeed, we are built  to be able to go to the edge of life and come back with heart and soul elevated. . . . We are built to be resilient, to be able to take sure  and steady steps over rocky terrain."

9. Use the power of staying and leaving

10. Find meaning in crisis

12. Both stand alone and rely on others

Easy-to-use format
Each of the twelve qualities is a chapter with case histories, stories, and plenty of "try this, this, or this"—exercises to  turn to again and again.
