Talking of Love : How to Overcome Trauma and Remake Your Life Story Paperback
All of us suffer traumatic experiences in our lives, whether it is losing someone close, the end of a love affair or a violent event.
Yet we need not be controlled by our pain. Psychoanalyst Boris Cyrulnik, himself a survivor of great trauma, has worked with victims of cruelty and disaster all over the world.
Here he draws on a mixture of case histories, parables and personal recollections to explain how - at any stage of life - it is possible to break free from tragedy by translating our suffering into words and creating a place where emotions can be expressed. "Talking of Love" shows that our pain does not have to be our destiny - and that life stories can be rewritten.
