Overview

The death of someone we hold dear may be inevitable; being paralyzed by our grief is not. A growing body of research has revealed our capacity for resilient grieving, our innate ability to respond to traumatic loss by finding ways to grow-by becoming more engaged with our lives, and discovering new, profound meaning.

Author and resilience/well-being expert Lucy Hone, a pioneer in fusing positive psychology and bereavement research, was faced with her own inescapable sorrow when, in 2014, her twelve-year-old daughter was killed in a car accident. By following the strategies of resilient grieving, she found a proactive way to move through her grief, and,over time, embrace life again.

Resilient Grieving offers an empowering alternative to the five-stage Kübler-Ross model of grief-and makes clear our inherent capacity for growth following the trauma of a loss that changes everything.

Editorial Reviews

The New York Times Book Review - Judith Newman

Hone does not buy into the idea that you just feel your feelings and take all the time in the world…[She] offers concrete strategies for regaining your equilibrium even in the greatest pain.

Hone, a researcher in resilience/well-being psychology (Auckland Univ. of Technology, New Zealand) applied the sorrow she felt after her daughter's death to the development of practical strategies that can help the bereaved work toward acceptance of their loss and return to experiencing a full life. She shares strength-building tools that include thinking flexibly, embracing a personal moral compass, finding a role model, and nurturing a caring social network. Hone adds that one should welcome and enjoy positive emotions, and that communicating them to others is good for the soul. VERDICT There is a wealth of empathetic information in this book that will undoubtedly be uplifting to all who are grieving or know of others in the process. Excellent.
