Abstract: This multidisciplinary book produces dialogue on crises of all kinds from different parts of the world. Interesting? Not unless crises can be made to serve as opportunities for the future. The chapters within this volume present accounts of empirical research into personal and group crises where people have not just survived their losses and grief but have in most cases gone on to meaningful future growth. Tragedy from natural calamity, war, accident; crisis in the family and at work; despair from physical and spiritual displacement; helplessness from political and economic disenfranchisement - from Australia and America to Asia and Europe. These subjects receive expert multidisciplinary scrutiny with one common goal in mind -to account for the ways in which recovery and regrowth can take place. But this is not a book about the phoenix's fable; it is empirical, evaluative, and pragmatic and is about turning crises into opportunities.
