About the Book

This unique book provides a valuable guide for building emotional resilience across all age groups that can be referenced for years to come. Practical language and tools are provided as a resource for improving all aspects of life, including relationships at home, school, and work.

With a driving metaphor as its foundation, this original approach helps you understand that your response to everyday situations and people determines which emotional road you take, and that reaction is within your control.

The book is divided into three sections and includes motivational posters throughout.

In the first section, readers will discover all the necessary information and resources to enhance emotional resilience, introducing simple alterations in language and providing practical techniques that can be seamlessly integrated into daily routines, regardless of age.

The book's second part features 60 ER messages and drawings designed to rewire neural pathways and change thought patterns.

The final section is a compilation of helpful ER resources and research to assist in integrating these changes into everyday routines.

Given the various global challenges we now face, it is crucial to enhance emotional resilience among people of all ages. By doing so, we can change the way we perceive life and avoid blaming others for its difficulties.

In a world that seems to be spiralling out of control, this book offers a practical guide to help regain and sustain control and it provides readers with the necessary tools to achieve that.

About the Author

Dr Jane Foster has been a teacher/educator for over four decades, both in Australia and abroad. Throughout her career, she noticed how the pervasive culture of blame, criticism and judgement can be damaging and destructive. This realization inspired her to establish MYTERN, which has since evolved into Emotional Resilience (ER). In her doctoral research, Jane evaluated the effectiveness of ER with first-year university students, and the results were impressive. It increased students’ psychological well-being, life satisfaction and resilience, whilst decreasing their levels of psychological distress. Her book aims to share this life-saving skill with a wider audience.
