    I agree. He has helped move psychology from focus on human weaknesses to focus on human strengths. At school, I am learning about another important psychologist that has done similar work in the area of trauma and resilience. His name is George A. Bonanno.

    I liked the article “Expert on Mental Illness”. Very informative.

    You have some good things here!

    Did you ever read Kay Redfield Jamison’s book, “Nothing Was The Same”? She has severe bipolar. Her husband helped her tremendously in leading a normal life, but when he died she had to do it herself. I found it very insightful.

      Nancy, Thank you for your comments.

      I haven’t read that particular book, but I have read her book An Unquiet Mind. I believe that was her first book. In this book she tells her story starting from childhood, and she goes on to share her experiences with bipolar in college.

      I need to read “Nothing Was the Same”. Have you read my post “B is for Bipolar”, it will give you an idea why I would find this book extra interesting.

      Again, thank you for taking the time to make comments on the pages. I was wondering if they were useful.

      Thank You, Claudia

    This is a great resource page. I am blown away by the work you have put into this.
    Thanks for all of it but especially the link for relaxation downloads and scripts.
