This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
'In this moving book ... you will discover how to move from merely surviving to once again thriving.' -- Anita Moorjani, New York Times bestselling author of Dying to Be Me
After studying to become a therapist and crisis intervention counselor-even doing her master's thesis on the stages of bereavement-Christina Rasmussen thought she understood grief. But it wasn't until losing her husband to cancer in her early 30s that she truly grasped the depths of sorrow and pain that accompany loss. Using the knowledge she gained while wading through her own grief and reading hundreds of neuroscience books, Rasmussen began to look at experiences in a new way. She realised that grief plunges you into a gap between worlds-the world before loss and the world after loss. She also realised how easy it is to become lost in this gap.
In Second Firsts, Rasmussen introduces the reader to her Life Re-entry process. A unique step-by-step programme, it is based on the science of neuroplasticity, which is designed to break the spiral of grief, so readers can stop simply surviving and begin to live again. She has used this method not only to heal from her own grief, but to help thousands of clients through the 5 stages of healing. Through each step, Christina guides the reader to acknowledge their fear, release pain and take active steps towards a new life, using cutting-edge science to explain how we can rewire the brain to change our perception of our self and the world.
Using this book, readers will come to see loss as a powerful catalyst to create a life of limitless possibilities- the resilience needed to overcome the heartbreak of a bereavement is exactly what is needed to create a truly wonderful life.
