Washington, DC, April 10, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- As the special guest of Buddy Poole on WSAT Radio in Charlotte NC, Donna Marie Thompson, PhD shared her story of dramatic loss and recovery as a pattern for others to follow. In her new best-selling book: Bouncing Back From Loss: How to Learn From Your Past, Build the Present, and Transform Your Future -- Thompson detailed her story and shared intimate dialogues that illustrate four key disasters in her life. Thompson lost her mother, her man, her money, and her health – all within a matter of months.
Thompson shared some of her recovery secrets. “One secret is your support system. Your support system can be comprised of family, friends, and faith community. It is important to have someone to talk to – not so much to give you advice – but simply to listen. Just telling your story – being heard – is an important dimension for the start of your healing.”
At Buddy Poole’s Morning Show Thompson gave examples of things to say to someone suffering from a loss, including the typical: “I’m sorry for your loss.” She also suggested what not to say including one of the worst things to say: “I know how you feel.”
Thompson explained her development of the "5Es to Recovery Program" in the book as: “It was the culmination of 18 months of research involving hundreds of articles, teleseminars, books, and blogs. I sorted through all of it – I’ve done all the work so you don’t have to. I discarded what does not work and embodied what does work in step-by-step system that gets to the root of your loss. I have a deep sense of gratitude that I found the way. And it is my goal that if you are suffering, that you will find the way too.”
