Overview

Overwhelmed helps people make sense of the transitions they face in everyday Life. This book is based on years of research-studies of people moving, adults returning to school, people whose jobs were eliminated, the stresses of retirement, and non-events like not having a baby or not being promoted. These studies resulted in the development of a framework for understanding any type of transition. Based on this research, Overwhelmed presents a step-by-step approach to turning overwhelming transitions into challenging experiences. By systematically sizing up transitions and the resources for dealing with them, people can learn how to build on their strengths, cut their losses, and even grow in the process.
