9780141036151: Resilience: How your inner strength can set you free from the past

Many of us experience pain in our childhoods, and young people face trauma all over the world. How is it possible to recover? Do those abused always go on to hurt others? This incredible bestseller has overturned the way we view trauma, by showing how the extraordinary power of resilience can heal damaged lives.

Renowned psychoanalyst Boris Cyrulnik has dealt with many young victims of distress and he relates stories of children who have been abused, orphaned, fought in wars and escaped genocide, yet who have not only survived, but grown in the face of adversity. By the way we deal with our memories and emotions, he shows, we can reshape our lives and transform pain into something stronger - just as a grain of sand in an oyster becomes a pearl.

Resilience is not just about resisting; it is about learning to live. This life-changing book points the way towards hope and happiness.

Review:

'A fascinating and revolutionary book ... even children who appear to be beyond help can be saved. No child is doomed by their past.' -- Viv Groskop, Guardian

'Almost any experience can be reshaped if those who have endured it are given the power to write their own narrative ... a powerful argument ... Cyrulnik has put into words what many survivors feel.' -- Aminatta Forna, The Sunday Telegraph

'This fascinating and revolutionary book argues that suffering can be the making of somebody rather than their destruction ... even children who appear to be beyond help can be saved' -- Guardian
