Two Books Authored By Eileen Lenson:

Each chapter details the influence the reader’s relationship with self, spirituality and society has on developing resilience.  Scientific research and personal interviews with others who have overcome obstacles will help people develop insight into how to use these three areas of support to work through the five components of adversity and increase control over their lives.  Suggested exercises at the conclusion of each chapter allow readers to practice and anchor their new skills.

Being able to develop changes that help the reader not only survive, but find personal growth in current as well as future emotionally challenging situations.

Bad things happen in life; unemployment, homelessness, disability, and tragic loss of loved ones, to name a few.  While the prospect of experiencing adversity at some point in our lifetime is 100 percent, the likelihood of coping effectively with the event has a much lower success rate.  The human toll in failing to overcome adversity is astonishing, often resulting in increased social isolation, decreased physical and mental health, and in some cases, early death.

Years ago, before research had been done to identify the steps one must take to persist when struggling with these challenges, the ability to overcome adversity was attributed to luck, social standing, or God’s will.
