about this item

Lucy Hone is a research academic in the field of resilience and wellbeing psychology. She started a blog four weeks after her daughter's death in a tragic car accident. Informed by her research and studies with Martin Seligman (the author of best-selling books Learned Optimism and Authentic Happiness), she decided to take an active approach to her grieving. A quick glance at the extant literature on grieving and loss shows how limited the support options are for those facing loss. Bereaved parents are told to write off the next five years to grief. Hone asks, what if they choose not to do that? What if they choose to focus on energy, choosing life rather than dwelling on death? What strategies are effective in helping move forward without bottling up the pain, so it comes back to bite us later? Hone looks at all these questions and possibilities from both a personal and academic level.
