All of us suffer from trauma in our lives, whether it be a difficult childhood or a violent experience. This work on the healing power of resilience helps us to understand ourselves and our pasts. It shows us how we are changed by trauma, but that we can choose either to submit to it as if it were our destiny, or break free and come back to life. "Talking Of Love on the Edge of a Precipice" is a book filled with hope. All of us suffer from trauma in our lives, whether it be a difficult childhood, the end of a love affair, or a violent experience. Yet rather than be controlled by our pain, it is possible for us to grow in the face of our problems and create a new life for ourselves. In his groundbreaking work on the healing power of resilience, Boris Cyrulnik has created a new way for us to understand ourselves and our pasts. He shows how we are all changed by trauma, but that we can choose either to submit to it as if it were our destiny, or break free and come back to life. The answer lies in making use of our pain and giving it meaning. Our memories may shape us but, he reveals, we can also shape our memories. Whether it occurs during adolescence, meeting a partner or having children ourselves, resilience comes from modifying our personal histories and how we see ourselves inside - literally remaking our life story. By translating trauma into words, we choose to live again. Cyrulnik shows us that the journey from hurt to hope may not be easy, but is one we have to choose in order to survive.Ultimately, this book is a celebration of the healing, transforming power of love.
