Bouncing back
Making a successful career transition

This new self-help guide is anchored in positive psychology, the cognitive and behavioural approach, and mindfulness. It derives its legitimacy from the recognised work of experts such as Jon Kabat-Zinn, Zindel Segal, Mélanie Fennel, Christine Padesky, Paul Gilbert, Christophe André and Matthieu Ricard.

This interactive guide clearly presents the featured theories, alongside downloadable exercises and supporting documents, which are available at the book's accompanying website. It accompanies you every step of the way in your search for a new job.

Resolutely optimistic and realistic, it encourages you to manage your professional life autonomously. The 21st century and today's economy require each employee to manage his/her professional life, if they are to cope with the hazards that can affect any one of us.

This book is part of the "self-help guide" collection under the direction of Christophe André and enables readers to:

  • approach the career transition phase in a focused and realistic manner
  • regain self-confidence and self-esteem
  • let go and reach the acceptance phase
  • quickly assume a pro-active role during the transition phase
  • construct a new career plan
  • actively seek a new job
