"This book aims to help you relearn your world . . . to help you navigate the grieving process as best you can--without hiding from your feelings or denying the reality, or significance, of your loss."
--from Resilient Grieving

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 12-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 K bler-Ross model of grief--and makes clear our inherent capacity for growth following the trauma of a loss that changes everything.
