Decline in our physical and mental abilities may be due to injury, illness, or chronic pain, or may simply be the results of normal aging. Sometimes changes in ability are gradual enough and minor enough that we adapt to them effortlessly. In other circumstances, however, these ability changes are more abrupt or more pronounced and pose a real challenge to our coping resources. In Bouncing Back: Skills for Adaptation to Injury, Aging, Illness and Pain, Richard Wanlass shares new research findings and observations of what he has learned in his thirty-five years of helping others adapt to these changes. Bouncing Back presents seven modules associated with changes in ability, including self-management, mood regulation, stress and anxiety management, anger and frustration management, relationship management, memory management, and pain management. Exercises follow almost every section to ensure concepts are understood and practiced. These developed tools provide new resilience skills and strategies to become better at change. They address the specific challenges of the broad and growing population of those learning to adapt to their loss of ability, and should be of aid for the public and for rehabilitation psychologists and neuropsychologists in their practice.
