"Conventional wisdom holds that grief unfolds in a five-stage process: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. But in The Other Side of Sadness, psychologist George Bonanno overturns this theory of grief - one that we have relied on for over forty years - and shows that it does not, in fact, represent what the majority of us go through when we lose a loved one." "Bonanno shows how the accepted model for mourning discounts our remarkable capacity for resilience. His research demonstrates that we are hardwired to deal with losses efficiently, and often without the help of a mental health professional. Grief, he explains, can actually deepen interpersonal connections and, in some cases, leads to a profound new sense of meaning in life."--BOOK JACKET.
