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.

Industry Reviews

For the overwhelmed woman, time given to reading Overwhelmed will be well spent. The author has a rare gift: insight combined with clear, crisp writing. Her prescription for coping is mature, sympathetic, and-best of all-realistic.--Ann McLaughlin, former Secretary of Labor
