Dr. O’Gorman publishes self-help book

Dr. Patricia O’Gorman’s latest book, “The Resilient Woman: Mastering the 7 Steps to Personal Power (HCI Books),” is a guidebook for today’s women.

In “The Resilient Woman: Mastering the 7 Steps to Personal Power,” Dr. O’Gorman offers an analysis of the causes of girly thoughts as well as self-evaluation assessments women can use to identify her personal strengths, weaknesses, and resilience style. She created seven daily steps that offer strategies for women to create and strengthen their own resilience.

“Women often miss the path toward achieving their true potential because they have been conditioned to blame themselves for something someone else has done to them,” Dr. O’Gorman said. “But with the right tools to break the cycle, they will learn to consciously harness and nurture their strengths and find the personal assets we often take for granted, realizing that a resilient life is generated not from the things that happened to us, but from our reaction to them.”
