Based on years of research, this book examines significant life transitions-families moving, loss of a job, retirement-and offers a step-by-step approach to turning these overwhelming events into challenging experiences. By systematically sizing up transitions and one's resources for dealing with them, people can learn how to build on their strengths, cut their losses, and even grow in the process. Schlossberg's work on transitions provides a generic framework to dealing with any transition and is written in accessible, everyday language.
