Stepping back into everyday life after having faced a life-threatening illness is not as simple as it sounds. Now what? How do you pick up the pieces of your life and put them back together again? There are no guidelines to follow once treatment for cancer finishes--no bridge from hospital to home. How do you discuss the variety of changes you are experiencing when you may not even know how to describe them? All you know is that you are confused and that you feel out of sync with yourself and with others.Picking Up the Pieces will guide you through this difficult time. Reassuring, realistic, and insightful, this book presents a unique four-phase process with useful daily practices to support you along your recovery journey. Drawing on the inspiring voices of cancer survivors, the authors give practical advice on how to design your own unique Healing Plan, including suggestions on ways to handle physical side effects and stress, and how to connect with yourself, with others, and with a higher power. They provide informational and educational resources and professional support services, and they suggest ways that you may find healing through your own contributions and creativity.

Picking Up the Pieces Reviews


This book is about the period after cancer diagnosis and treatment, described by survivors as "an in-between place, limbo,
a weird nothingness, a neutral zone", or the Void....Picking Up the Pieces is easy to read, practical, moving and insightful. I liked the way in which the authors provided doable strategies for living through this difficult period, wrote about challenges to making changes, and advanced counterarguments to help the reader move ahead. I strongly recommend this book as a resource for friends, family members and clients.
--Anita M. Unruh "Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy "
