Summary

Muchos buscamos un "cierre" después de sufrir una pérdida.

En su nuevo e inspirador libro Encuentra el significado, David Kessler demuestra que encontrar el sentido detrás una pérdida puede transformar el dolor y convertirlo en una experiencia más serena y esperanzadora.
 
En 1969, Elisabeth Kübler Ross identificó por primera vez las cinco etapas del duelo –negación, ira, negociación, depresión y aceptación. Décadas más tarde, ella y David Kessler escribieron el clásico Sobre el duelo y el dolor, presentando las etapas del duelo con pragmatismo y compasión. Ahora, basado en experiencias personales, así como en el conocimiento y la sabiduría obtenidos a través de décadas de trabajo con personas afligidas, Kessler nos presenta una sexta etapa crítica: el significado.
 
La visión de Kessler es a la vez profesional e intensamente personal. Su experiencia con el dolor comenzó cuando, de niño, presenció un tiroteo masivo al mismo tiempo que su madre moría. Durante la mayor parte de su vida, Kessler enseñó a médicos, enfermeras, consejeros, policías y socorristas sobre el final de la vida, el trauma y el duelo, y también dirigió charlas y retiros para quienes experimentan situaciones de dolor. Sin embargo, a pesar de su conocimiento, su vida se vio trastocada por la repentina muerte de su hijo de veintiún años.
 
En Encuentra el significado, Kessler comparte las enseñanzas, la sabiduría colectiva y las poderosas herramientas que ayudarán a todo aquel quien haya experimentado una pérdida a seguir adelante sin dejar de honrar a sus seres queridos. Esta es una lectura inspiradora y profundamente perspicaz, y una guía vital para ayudarnos a recordar a aquellos que se han ido con más amor y menos dolor.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

In this groundbreaking and “poignant” (Los Angeles Times) book, David Kessler—praised for his work by Maria Shriver, Marianne Williamson, and Mother Teresa—journeys beyond the classic five stages to discover a sixth stage: meaning.

In 1969, Elisabeth Kübler-Ross first identified the stages of dying in her transformative book On Death and Dying. Decades later, she and David Kessler wrote the classic On Grief and Grieving, introducing the stages of grief with the same transformative pragmatism and compassion. Now, based on hard-earned personal experiences, as well as knowledge and wisdom gained through decades of work with the grieving, Kessler introduces a critical sixth stage: meaning.

Kessler’s insight is both professional and intensely personal. His journey with grief began when, as a child, he witnessed a mass shooting at the same time his mother was dying. For most of his life, Kessler taught physicians, nurses, counselors, police, and first responders about end of life, trauma, and grief, as well as leading talks and retreats for those experiencing grief. Despite his knowledge, his life was upended by the sudden death of his twenty-one-year-old son. How does the grief expert handle such a tragic loss? He knew he had to find a way through this unexpected, devastating loss, a way that would honor his son. That, ultimately, was the sixth stage of grief—meaning. In Finding Meaning, Kessler shares the insights, collective wisdom, and powerful tools that will help those experiencing loss.

Beautiful, tender, and wise” (Katy Butler, author of The Art of Dying Well), Finding Meaning is “an excellent addition to grief literature that helps pave the way for steps toward healing” (School Library Journal).
