Book Overview

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

   This is the one to get.
, I recently lost my newborn daughter, and this book helped immensely. So many of the books about infant death are filled with platitudes and stories, but lack actual substance on how to deal with crushing grief. This book offers concrete steps on moving through grief healthily. I recommend this to all the new loss moms that I now encounter. Furthermore, it is written by a mother who suffered trauma and grief when her twelve-year-old daughter died. It is applicable to all types of deaths.

   living with grief
In March 2018, I unexpectedly lost my oldest son. By far the most useful book in navigating loss was Lucy's. There is no fixed process for grief, no timeline and no steps you have to take. Grief is grief and we go through it differently, but this book helped me put my strengths to work and keep moving forward. Life does not end with the loss of a child, regardless of age, but it feels like it. For those who persist, however, one must persevere. The sadness will always be part of me. The thing I know is that I can come out of the ups and downs of sadness and always move on the top of the wave. For writing this book, thank you Lucy. My heart goes out to you and to all who have lost a child. It is the deepest loss.

I lost my only child at the age of 55 in June. I had lost my husband 2 years earlier. I was trying to find a way of coping and identifying with how to deal. My family is all gone now. I have left only two siblings and both are in nursing homes in different states.
