Overwhelmed is a helpful, positive guide to dealing with the challenges-both expected and unexpected-that accompany change.

Schlossberg shows readers how to evaluate each change and determine its affects, how to assess personal strengths and the support systems brought to the change, and how to pinpoint the best coping strategies for the situation.
