The Other Side of Sadness (Revised) : What the New Science of Bereavement Tells Us About Life After Loss Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The conventional view of grieving--encapsulated by the famous five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance - is defined by a mourning process that we can only hope to accept and endure.

In The Other Side of Sadness, psychologist and emotions expert George Bonanno argues otherwise.

Our inborn emotions - anger and denial but also relief and joy - help us deal effectively with loss.

To expect or require only grief-stricken behaviour from the bereaved does them harm.

In fact, grieving goes beyond mere sadness and it can actually deepen interpersonal connections and even lead to a new sense of meaning in life.
