Abstract:

For something that we have been experiencing all our lives, most of us handle change very badly. We switch careers and marriages more often than ever before, we move from one city to another, meet different people every day; yet each change brings with it new fears and further confusion. How can we better handle these difficult, painful experiences? And what new insights can we learn about ourselves from these transitions? This book helps both in identifying and in coping with such critical changes in our lives. It takes us step by step through the transition process, offering skills, suggestions and advice for negotiating each of these three perilous passages: endings, the neutral zone, the new beginning.
