What Up, Get Up Nation? My name is Ben Biddick, the Host of the Get Up Nation Podcast and Co-Author of Get Up: The Art of Perseverance with former Major League Baseball player and CEO of Lurong Living, Adam Greenberg. Recently I spoke with renowned resilience expert Linda Graham. Linda became a licensed marriage and family therapist in 1995, specializing in helping people “reverse the impact of stress and trauma, manage anxiety, depression, loneliness, and shame and shift out of reactivity, contraction, and smallifying into openness, trust, and conscious, compassionate connection.” She has spent her life and career “guiding people on reliable paths of personal growth and self-transformation.” Her first book was called “Bouncing Back: Rewiring Your Brain for Maximum Resilience and Well-Being.” It integrated modern neuroscience and Western relational psychology with Eastern contemplative practices to help readers “shift out of old patterns of response to life events to more flexible, adaptive coping strategies that lead to more authentic resilience and well-being.” Since the release of her first book, Linda has trained thousands of clinicians and clients in clinical training and personal growth workshops through online courses and in meditation centers in the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, and the Middle East. Linda’s second book, which we discuss on this episode of the Get Up Nation Podcast, is called “Resilience.” It leads readers through an “evidence-based trajectory of tools” that span “somatic, emotional, relational, and reflective intelligences to face and cope with any adversity, recover personal strengths and resilience, and move into a compassionate and courageous new life.” It is my honor to welcome Linda Graham to the Get Up Nation Podcast!
