On Amazon UK, Mike Hackett gives True Resilience five stars.
“Dr Wagnild has written a highly accessible book on what it is to be truly resilient. As a counselling psychotherapist, educator and consultant in the filed I feel that Dr Wagnild has contributed something useful, practical and highly beneficial in these three areas.
In supporting work with counselling clients, her book facilitates a clear, active, participative reflection for clients on their present-state resilience, and more importantly, offers practical, achievable methods demonstrating how to bridge the gap between where they are now, and how they can become more resilient.
As a teaching aid in an educational context, it has several useful tools to support students understanding of resilience, what it is to be resilient and indeed how to be resilient students with all of the pressures of deadlines, assessments etc.
In the field of consulting within organisations, the tools and methods can be easily adapted to look at performance in the workplace and how leaders, managers, mentors, coaches, supervisors and indeed employees themselves can attend to their own resilience to make them more effective in the workplace, reducing stress, bouncing back from adversity and seeing new options and choices perhaps previously unavailable to them.
In this reader (and now users opinion), this book is an excellent contribution to the field of Resilience in its practical, accessible and highly achievable potential for sustained life change within our clients, our students and in ourselves as employees.”
