Description

International bestselling author and leading global expert on mental strength Amy Morin turns her focus to feminism, explaining what it meansA??and what it takesA??to be a mentally strong woman in the age of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.The emergence of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements have awakened society and encouraged women to find their voice and claim their power. But to do this, women must learn to improve their own mental strength. Contending with a host of difficult issuesA??from sexual assault on college campuses, to equal pay and pay gaps, to mastering different negotiation stylesA??demands psychological toughness. In this crucial book, prominent psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker Amy Morin gives women the techniques to build mental muscleA??and just as important, she teaches them what not to do. What does it mean to be a mentally strong woman? Delving into critical issues like sexism, social media, social comparison, and social pressure, Amy addresses this question and offers thoughtful, intelligent advice, practical tips, and specific strategies and combines them with personal experiences, stories from former patients, and both well-known and untold examples from women from across industries and pop culture. Throughout, she explores the areas womenA??and society at largeA??must focus on to become (and remain) mentally strong. Amy reveals that healthy, mentally tough women donA??t insist on perfection; they donA??t compare themselves to other people; they donA??t see vulnerability as a weakness; they donA??t let self-doubt stop them from reaching their goals. Wise, grounded, and essential, 13 Things Mentally Strong Women DonA??t Do can help every woman flourishA??and ultimately improve our society as well.

Professional reviews

"There's something about Amy Morin's performance of her latest audiobook that stirs curiosity. She's a great storyteller, and that's part of the draw, but it's her gentle pacing and tender tone that make you wonder what's going to happen to this vulnerable soul. With compelling stories from her therapy practice and her own life, she offers an intuitive list of mental habits that can make life less painful, less self-punitive. Striving for perfection, denying your vulnerability, letting others limit your potential, and habitual self-blame are some of the unproductive habits she points out. They may sound simple but are actually difficult for tenderhearted men and women to avoid. This fast-moving collection delivered with the sound of Morin's authentic experience and desire to help emerges as a powerful personal development resource. T.W. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine"
