Learning to Live in Crises
Issue date: 2005-01-01
Awarded the Prize for Literature
By analyzing over 2000 life-histories covering a century, and through her decades of experience in crisis counselling, the author has discovered a way to work through crisis which she describes here - illustrated by the image of the ascending spiral. She also draws our attention to people who support others in their crises and are themselves changed in the process, becoming able to live their lives creatively and actively.
With the publication in English translation of Dr Erika Schuchardt's prize-winning book Why Me? Learning to Live in Crises (Warum gerade ich? Leben lernen in Krisen), this web page was established to preserve reference materials from "Bibliography of over 2000 life stories" from 1900 to now that appeared at the close of the original German text and have not been included in the English version.
