Publisher's Summary

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

More helpful than I ever imagined!

After my mother’s death, it was as if the rug was pulled out from under me. I felt like I was floundering with no direction in sight. “Resilient Grieving” not only should me how to play an active role in my grieving process, it also confirmed that everything is been feeling & doing were within the normal realm of the process. I actually plan to listen it again, because Lucy Hone’s words have provided me with so much encouragement and hope for the future.

Grieving parents.

This book pertains to grieving parents. It's a far stretch to consider this writing as applicable to empty-nest widows who are left all alone.

Resilient grieving

While the author has had something terrible happen to her ,her interview about writing this book is far better than the book it self which as someone who has gone thru.a tradgy iun my life ,this seemed very superficial

It is different…but stick with it! It is worth it.

I found this book hard to stick with at times. Especially in the early chapters. Not because it wasn’t well written, well researched, nor because the author was not competent in the subject. I actually think it may have been because she is MORE THAN COMPETENT! She too has suffered trauma and loss in a very real way. But, I think because of her academic research background and her desire for evidence based content, at times, the language can be a bit clinical in nature (for me this is not a bad thing, I am a nerd that way), and she sometimes uses words that may rub some bereaved individuals the wrong way….BUT, stick with it! Even if you aren’t feeling it at first. By the time the author gets to her conclusions of her research in each section, you will be nodding your head in agreement or at least saying to yourself, I can understand that and I should probably try it! This book definitely gave me some new tools to try out and some hope for the future.

Current and useful

In a time when people are overwhelmed with grief this book was extremely helpful. I am a therapist and found this material to be accessible, practical, compassionate and current. I will use its content for my next seminar. Thanks you!

very informative

she really gave the topic a.personable effect to the book. thanks. I know when my parents passed I never grieved their death and still have not. I was talking to a friend and I told her that and she said it's most likely u did not have no emotional connection. I do believe she is right. I was adopted and have never felt a part of the family. so what I have done I have had other adults in my life be my parents. I have felt satisfied but do grieve that I did not have parent there emotionally.
