Description of this Book

The inspiring story of how Lucy Hone coped with the tragic death of her daughter and how strategies from the science of resilient grieving can help anyone face an equally helpless situation.

Lucy Hone's beloved 12-year-old daughter Abi was killed in 2013 in a devastating car accident in Canterbury that also claimed the lives of Abi's friend Ella and Ella's mother Sally.

Lucy works in the field of resilience psychology, helping ordinary people exposed to real life traumatic situations. When faced with the incomprehensible fact of Abi's tragic death Lucy knew that she was fighting for the survival of her sanity and her family unit.

She used her practice to develop ways to support her family in their darkest days, and to find a new way of living without Abi.

In What Abi Taught Us Lucy shares her story and findings so that others can work towards some sense of control and activity in the face of helpless situations.
