About this product
- DescriptionAll of us suffer traumatic experiences in our lives, whether it is losing someone close, the end of a love affair or a violent event. Yet we need t be controlled by our pain. Psychoanalyst Boris Cyrulnik, himself a survivor of great trauma, has worked with victims of cruelty and disaster all over the world. Here he draws on a mixture of case histories, parables and personal recollections to explain how - at any stage of life - it is possible to break free from tragedy by translating our suffering into words and creating a place where emotions can be expressed. Talking of Love shows that our pain does t have to be our destiny - and that life stories can be rewritten.
- Author BiographyBoris Cyulnik is, beyond a doubt, resilient. Born in 1937, his parents were deported to a concentration camp during the Second World War. They never returned. His personal trauma helped him develop his belief that trauma is not destiny: rather, we find strength in the face of problems. Working all around the world, he has helped individuals and countries come to terms with their pasts and create a new life for themselves. Hailed as the book that healed France, Talking of Love on the Edge of a Precipice was on the French bestseller lists for forty-five weeks.
