Product Description In the time of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement, international bestselling author and leading global expert on mental strength Amy Morin turns her focus to feminism, explaining what it means—and what it takes—to be a mentally strong woman.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 issues—from sexual assault on college campuses, to equal pay and pay gaps, to mastering different negotiation styles—demands psychological toughness. In this crucial book, prominent psychotherapist and licensed clinical social worker Amy Morin gives women the techniques to build mental muscle—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 women—and society at large—must focus on to become (and remain) mentally strong. Amy reveals that healthy, mentally tough women don’t insist on perfection; they don’t compare themselves to other people; they don’t see vulnerability as a weakness; they don’t let self-doubt stop them from reaching their goals. Wise, grounded, and essential, 13 Things Mentally Strong Women Don’t Do can help every woman flourish—and ultimately improve our society as well. Review “I’m so excited to see this book. I’m going to give it to every person I know, not just every woman I know.” (James Altucher) “Sage advice on building mental strength. Exemplary guidance for women of all ages.” (-- Library Journal, starred review) From the Back Cover Women around the globe, it’s time to finally speak up, speak out, be heard, and become stronger than ever. While many people focus on what women should do to live their best lives, only one author will tell women in no uncertain terms the thirteen habits and mind-sets to avoid in order to become mentally strong. Drawing on scientific evidence, case studies from her own patients, and even celebrity stories, psychotherapist Amy Morin shows how mental strength can come from anywhere, regardless of career, marriage, or family life. By integrating easy-to-follow exercises and practical tips into daily life, Morin shows that mental strength is achievable—and necessary—to become a strong woman. Featuring stories and experiences from dozens of women and offering a timely approach to the hard-hitting difficulties women are facing—including calling out sexism, fighting harassment, and finding confidence—Morin confronts the status quo by giving women the time, space, and energy to prioritize themselves. The end result frees you from the obstacles that women face every day, and inspires you to achieve the mental strength you need to create a life of authentic meaning and joy.
