Book Description

In Resilience as a Framework for Coaching: A Cognitive Behavioural Perspective, Michael Neenan presents an in-depth understanding of resilience and shows how coaches can help their clients to develop and enhance their own resilience.

By focusing on the beliefs, emotions and behaviours that promote or hinder the development of resilience, Neenan provides coaches with plenty of discussion points for inclusion in their sessions. The book, written in an engaging and accessible style, includes a chapter showing the unfolding of a five-session course of resilience coaching with lengthy dialogue excerpts between the coach and the client, accompanied by a commentary on the coach’s interventions. Throughout the book there are plenty of case studies and examples of resilience in action. The book ends with a recap on resilience pinpointing some of the key features of a resilient mindset.

Written by an established expert in the field of resilience and cognitive behavioural coaching, Resilience as a Framework for Coaching represents an essential resource for those wishing to train in this discipline. The book will appeal to coaches, coaching psychologists, psychotherapists and clinical, health and counselling psychologists with an interest in coaching, human resource professionals, counsellors and trainees in these disciplines.
