Dr. David Roland is a gifted writer, presenter, and psychologist. His first two books that are published internationally are his memoir titled How I Rescued My Brain and The Confident Performer.

David’s latest book titled The Power of Suffering: growing through life crises poses the following profound question: When our world is turned upside down, what does it do to us, how do we survive it and how do we grow as a result? The book details David’s personal investigation into the nature of human suffering by drawing together the inspiring real-life stories of 11 incredible people who survived devastating crises and grew in transformative ways. David not only narrates these stories, but he also examines them through the lens of post-traumatic growth.

  • David’s devastating life crisis that turned his internal compass away from his own needs to love.
  • Why some people stay stuck in their suffering while others flourish.

SOME QUESTIONS IRENE ASKS DAVID:
