As one ages, life-changing events such as death, serious illness, unemployment and divorce become all the more likely. Yet, according to Eric Pfeiffer, M.D., these setbacks don’t have to make life unenjoyable; rather, than can be used to catapult one on a course to recovery that will help one regain momentum and may even contribute to an enhanced experience.

In his new book “Up from Down: How to Recover from Life-Changing Adverse Events” (published by Balboa Press), Pfeiffer offers practical advice to overcome unexpected challenges. As an emeritus professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the University of South Florida, College of Medicine, Pfeiffer draws from his years of research and treating patients to provide the guidance readers need to cope with trauma, crisis and loss.

“Most people experience such losses and traumas, and may not know how to cope with them,” says Pfeiffer, adding that the book’s specific strategies to deal with particular adverse events will give readers the push they need to build toward a healthier, more sustainable life.
