The current construct of intellectual disability is based on the assumption that both IQ and adaptive behaviour can be measured accurately.

Dieses Buch macht Sie stark! Und das sofort! Depression und Burnout sind für Amy Morin keine Fremdworte: Auf den Tag genau drei Jahre, nachdem sie ihre Mutter verloren hatte, starb ihr Mann ganz plötzlich an einem Herzinfarkt. Morin wurde mit nur 26 Jahren Witwe und musste selbst lernen, nach diesen schweren Schicksalsschlägen zu mentaler Stärke zu finden. Sie nutzte den Umbruch zum Neuanfang. Die Psychotherapeutin und Sozialpädagogin Amy Morin weiß: Wir alle sind nur so gut, wie unsere schlechtesten Angewohnheiten es zulassen. Sie sind wie eine schwere Last, sie behindern, ermüden und frustrieren. Sie halten uns davon ab, unser Potential voll auszunutzen, sie führen zu Depression und Burnout. Unsere mentale Stärke und Resilienz steigern wir, indem wir negative Verhaltens- und Denkmuster ablegen, wie z.B. in Selbstmitleid zu versinken, sofortige Erfolge zu erwarten oder das Alleinsein zu fürchten. Freuen wir uns stattdessen auf Veränderungen, besiegen wir unsere Ängste, werden wir glücklich und erfolgreich! Der erste Ratgeber mit einem ganz neuen Ansatz zur Verbesserung der mentalen Stärke und der Resilienz: mitreißend, effektiv und überzeugend!
