Product Description

Review

"Dr Ray Owen is a clinical psychologist working in cancer and palliative care, and with two decades of experience he’s very well placed to reflect upon our varied responses to a major life crisis. Using the metaphor of a storm, he takes us (admirably thoroughly) through the stages of preparing for the arrival of a major life crisis, its passing through, and dealing with its aftermath." - Julia Bueno, The Independent Practitioner, Autumn 2011

"At some point all of us will face a life crisis. This pragmatic yet warm-hearted book helps us to recognise that it is not so much a question of avoiding this truth, nor of living in dread of difficulty, but a question of discovering how we can face each and every moment of our lives (including the desperate ones) with honesty and with a willingness to work with our experience as it is rather than as we would like it to be. Ray Owen offers us a pragmatic tool kit that is highly relevant to the process of working with the storms of our lives and our everyday life experience with a greater degree of awareness, compassion and understanding." - Rebecca Crane, Bangor University, UK

"I would recommend this book to everyone interested in learning from a highly experienced palliative care clinician who has himself learnt from many people making final journeys – still finding routes through that are filled with laughter, hope and resilience." - Julie Stokes OBE – Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Executive Coach, Founder of Winston's Wish

"Dr Owen encourages people to find routes for themselves that are filled with laughter, hope and resilience. I recommend this book to those who are facing a crisis of any kind. Dr Owen has provided an excellent guide for clients and professionals alike. *****" - Jane Ross, Nursing Standard, Volume 26, Number 30, 2012

Format: Paperback
This is a great book to accompany people through some of the most difficult times in their lives. As the author anticipates I have read it "for work" and have found it helpful in informing my psychological work with clients in distress. I have also recommended it as a "self-help" or "bibliotherapy" text for some clients. I am particularly impressed by the way it can respectfully speak about the experience of someone facing objectively different difficulties or "storms" e.g. unemployment or death. Sound theoretical underpinnings are presented with sublime subtlety throughout.

Format: Paperback
I would strongly recommend this book to those of us who are either imminently facing a crisis (and we all will one day) or who are supporting someone else in this position.

It is written with warmth, humour and great understanding. The use of several realistic case studies from a variety of situations means that it is easy to see how the ideas apply in real life.

A must-read.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would recommend this book to anyone who has faced or is facing a dilemma or crisis in their lives. Inspired by loss of a loved one to cancer, it is written from the perspective of a variety of crises that may occur. It contains common sense approaches that may get lost when caught up in a difficulty as well as an introduction to CBT, Mindfulness, ACT and other skills that can be applied to help deal with the detritus of life (and death). I find the section on acceptance particularly concise and helpful. It is a book to read through and then return to again and again.
