Explore -- and Learn From -- the Seven Stages of Any Life Transition

  Life Changes provides those who are undergoing significant changes in their lives with an easy-to-follow road map of the normal ups and downs in the adjustment process. The seven stages of any transition process are described with clear advice about what to expect and, more importantly, what can be learned from each stage. Whatever the transition might be -- the death of a loved one, a new job, a divorce, or a marriage -- the authors point out that people can either “go” through change or they can “grow” through change. It’s up to the individual. Life Changes also provides additional support for people making life changes, as the authors give advice on clarifying life purpose, protecting health, and maintaining balance during and after these major transitions.

“No matter what you do or how old you are, transition seems to be the name of the game these days. Sabina and John have written a detailed map for managing ourselves through each stage of the process. Life Changes is an indispensable guide for people on the fast track or those trying to get off it!” -- Dennis T. Jaffe and Cynthia D. Scott, authors of Take This Job and Love It

“Life Changes offers a practical, purposeful, holistic, and compassionate approach to all of us as we dance in the evolutionary process. It is both welcome and timely.” -- Linda Marks, author of Living With Vision: Reclaiming the Power of the Heart
