The Unbreakable Student: 6 Rules for Staying Sane at University (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


'Equal parts practical, funny and illuminating - belongs on the required reading list for life' - Sarah Knight, internationally bestselling author of Get Your Sh!t Together

Nic Hooper witnesses the student mental health crisis every day in the lecture halls of his university and is determined to do something about it. A psychologist with ten years' experience teaching and mentoring young adults, The Unbreakable Student is his evidence-based wellbeing guide for university.

The book presents six key evidence-based wellbeing rules and a number of clinically proven techniques that will inspire students to take positive action in their lives after leaving home.

However, it does far more than that. It's a soulful, entertaining and pragmatic account of what it takes to succeed at student life and beyond. The book blends personal reflection and first-hand observation with the latest research, and is written in a heartfelt, emotionally-honest style. Students will learn how to positively challenge themselves, how to use mindfulness to embrace the moment, how to stay healthy and fit at university, how to connect with others in a new environment and how to manage self-critical thoughts and vulnerability.

The Unbreakable Student is a book that every student embarking on a degree needs. It will be a trusted companion through a time of great change, and it will help to prepare young adults psychologically for the world after graduation.

Dr Nic Hooper is an expert in clinical psychology and a senior lecturer at the University of the West of England in Bristol. He has authored many scientific articles, book chapters and books including The Acceptance and Commitment Diary (published annually) and The Research Journey of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Nic is also a co-director of Connect, which is an organization that offers a psychological wellbeing curriculum for primary school children. In 2017, inspired by his students, Nic began to write a book of life advice to his son, Max, which was to be given to him on his 18th birthday. Over time, that book slowly transformed into The Unbreakable Student.
