NIGHT BLOOMERS: 12 Principles for Thriving in Adversity, Michelle Pearce, PhD

Julia Cameron meets Mary Pipher in this profound guide to writing your way through the dark times of life. Drawing on a growing body of research on post-traumatic growth, Pearce–a researcher, educator and clinical psychologist–reveals dealing with the challenges of loss, grief and tragedy can be a catalyst for transformation.  Pearce uses the metaphor of flowers that bloom in the night, such as the Moonflower, the Casablanca Lily and the Night Rose to provide hope and healing.  Pearce is Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland, Baltimore and adjunct at Duke University Medical Center (Ixia Press/Dover Publications/World English language/Fall 2020).
