Overwhelmed is a helpful, positive guide to dealing with the challenges-both expected and unexpected-that accompany change. More than a discussion of turning points and transitions, it offers real-life examples and specific guidelines for responding constructively to all kinds of changes, welcome and unwelcome. Nancy K. Schlossberg shows readers how to evaluate each change and determine its affects, how to assess personal strengths and the support systems brought to the change, and how to pinpoint the best coping strategies for the situation.

Schlossberg's work represents an important and enormously helpful alternative to old-fashioned 'stage theories.' When you think you are having an 'age-thirty (or whatever) crisis, ' there's nothing much you can do. When you realize that it isn't being thirty, or forty, or sixty that matters, but what is happening in your life, you can learn to cope with inevitable changes-and even thrive on them. This warm, wise book shows how.--Carol Tavris, Ph.D., author of Anger: The Misunderstood Emotion
