SURVIVOR'S MINDSET Bernadette Bohan
Why is it so difficult to change your lifestyle habits, even when you know your life is at risk? Cancer survivor Bernadette Bohan acknowledges that it's not easy to change your life, especially if you are also dealing with a heath crisis that is in itself life-changing. The Survivor's Mindset provides a series of easily understood strategies that assist in overcoming the hesitancies, fears and prejudices that so of- ten are a barrier to making personal change. It equips the reader with common sense information and simple skills. Using many case studies the author shows how different therapies and interventions can be used to develop personal strengths and overcome doubts and uncertainly. These real stories from real people illustrate vividly how lifestyles can be restructured both physically and mentally. It often takes a crisis to provide the catalyst for change and, as the author points out, the Chinese word for crisis - wei-ji - is composed of the characters for 'danger' and 'opportunity'.
