The Survivor’s Guide to Life is an on-going series of discussions between Dr Peter Bernstein - a coach and mentor with nearly 50 years of experience working with emotional trauma and its impacts and podcast host, Jenny Stevenson - a seasoned coach and mentor who has worked with Dr Bernstein for more than a decade.

Each podcast will cover real-world examples of the various traumas, difficulties and struggles of life, and how developing an attitude of resilience can do more than merely help one cope - resilience can result in personal growth, an attitude of hope and ever-increasing joy in life.

Dr Bernstein has written a book - Trauma: Healing the Hidden Epidemic. It’s available on Amazon.

An important resource in the discussion of resilience is: Type R: Transformative Resilience for Thriving in a Turbulent World by Ama and Stephanie Marston. This is also available on Amazon.
