Description

Living Through Personal Crisis. I first heard about it at a lecture given by the author in Baltimore some years ago. Stearns is a fabulous lecturer and her handouts really distilled down the book and her work into a clear set of bullet points that made a lot of sense to me.

Living Through Personal Crisis. Real gems. The stories in the book are rather heart-wrenching at times, so can be a bit off-putting to get through to the good parts. These are, of course, stories as people remember events years later, from their own point of view.

wasn't applicable for me. Too many stories and not enough new ways for thinking about a process. just not written in a style that was for me

It's a shame this book is out of print. I first heard about it at a lecture given by the author in Baltimore some years ago. Stearns is a fabulous lecturer and her handouts really distilled down the book and her work into a clear set of bullet points that made a lot of sense to me. Real gems. The stories in the book are rather heart-wrenching at times, so can be a bit off-putting to get through to the good parts. I also found there is a bit of repetition: the author keeps coming back to a few of her favorite persons several times. These are, of course, stories as people remember events years later, from their own point of view. But maybe that's the point: a good part of healing is re-forming painful memories and giving them meaning and value.
My only real criticism is that the stories are culturally western/christian centric. The book is not overtly religious and does seem to fairly represent non-believers viewpoints, but I found myself wanting to know how people in other cultures and from other religious and non-religious traditions around the world triumph over adversity and also turn their losses into gains ... which they surely do. Human beings are survivors and I suspect that many of the points Stearns makes are culturally universal.
