Moving beyond books that address a single type of crisis (e.g. death of a child; diagnosis of a serious illness; sexual assault). Its focus is on helping the general reader and non-specialists recognize common signs of crisis across a range of life challenges. It shows how unexpected events, e.g. death of a loved one or diagnosis of a serious illness often intersect with life cycle transition points (i.e., adolescence, mid-life, old age) and can leave people more vulnerable to slipping into crisis-especially when lacking one's usual social supports. Through extensive use of stories, the book aims to help people identify and respond appropriately to the typical feelings and behaviors when facing traumatic events and life-threatening crisis. For example, some people in acute crisis express a fear of "going crazy" or have thoughts of suicide or violence toward others. Readers will learn that the high anxiety typical of crisis is normal, not usually a sign of mental illness. Whether or not critical life events result in crisis depends on the type, timing, and interpretation of the event, the person's life cycle development phase, history of healthy coping, and available timely support. In sum, the book's central theme is crisis as both danger and opportunity.

How to Press Ahead (and Should You?) When All Is Wrong As much as we’d like to avoid suffering in life, all of us will occasionally face earth-shattering hardships. You might be dealing with one now, or perhaps your friend or a loved one is, or maybe you’d just like to prepare yourself for when one inevitably occurs in your life. Self-Discipline in Difficult Times is the right book for you if you want to learn how to press ahead as your world turns upside down. Some of the topics I discuss in the book include: - in which situations self-help advice helps and in which you should stay away from it, - how to avoid making a bad situation worse when you’re under too much pressure, - how to take care of yourself during difficult times without sabotaging your long-term goals, - how to begin the process of recovery with three fundamental strategies, - how to prepare yourself for inevitable future crises with an uncomfortable, but effective practice, - how to help a friend struggling with a crisis. Mental resilience is our most important tool for surviving a rupture. This book can give you some hope and comfort that you’re not alone in whatever you’re facing.
