Overview

It’s time to realize your full potential! In The Resilience Workbook for Teens, you’ll learn to bounce back from setbacks, develop grit and a growth mindset, and overcome any obstacle that comes your way.

Social media, online ads, and glossy magazines make it look easy to be a teen—everyone seems to be laughing, sun-kissed, beautiful, surrounded by friends, and wearing the perfect clothes. But if you’re like most teens and young adults, reality doesn’t look like a magazine ad, lifestyle blog, or Instagram feed. You may struggle with not fitting in or being bullied. You may feel overwhelmed by stress, experience a significant setback, or lose a parent or loved one. That’s why it’s so important to build resilience—the cornerstone of mental health and wellness. This workbook will show you how.

In The Resilience Workbook for Teens, author, psychotherapist, and youth mentor Cheryl M. Bradshaw will show you that the key to building resilience lies in your relationship with yourself. Through activities and interactive exercises, you’ll learn to balance your emotions, rewrite the negative stories you tell yourself, embrace who you are, and believe in your own power to bounce back from life’s biggest challenges.

The teen years are a critical time to learn the skills of resilience and to develop positive strategies for coping with stress and mental health challenges. Let this fun and friendly workbook guide you as you build your own resilience. It’s a gift you’ll take with you, beyond high school and well into adulthood.
