Amy Morin      

Psychotherapist &d Bestselling Author of "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do"

Why do some people struggle to overcome life’s challenges, while others bounce back from adversity better than before? In an inspiring presentation filled with clear action steps and anecdotal stories, bestselling author Amy Morin provides the answers.

Morin’s expertise as a psychotherapist, combined with her own experiences with loss, have given her unique insights on resilience and mental strength. Her message is clear; reaching our greatest potential isn’t about establishing more good habits, instead, we need to give up the counterproductive bad habits that are interfering with our goals.

With evidence-based research and powerful exercises for building mental strength, Morin’s presentations resonate with audiences ranging from executives to athletes.

In the Fall of 2013, Amy started a global conversation on mental strength when her article, 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do, became a viral sensation. It was shared millions of times before being reprinted on Forbes, where it became one of their most read articles of all time with 10 million views. Amy’s bestselling book, also called 13 Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do (HarperCollins, 2014), is being translated into more than 20 languages.

In addition to being an author, Amy is also a licensed clinical social worker, psychotherapist, and college psychology instructor. She maintains a weekly column for Forbes where she writes about the psychological aspects of business. She’s also a regular contributor to Psychology Today and she serves as a parenting expert for About.com.

Her presentations provide practical tips that attendees can apply to their everyday lives.
