Fine. Ivy Books 1989 The intrusion of the unexpected sometimes leads us to reframe our self-concept. The Lauers, social scientists associated with United States International University, have interviewed 315 males and 317 females (with an average age of 37) who have experienced such a "reframing" event. From these accounts they derive ten principles for dealing with crises by transforming them into opportunities for conscious redirection. This is not a case book; hundreds of too-brief anecdotes follow one another relentlessly, giving no sense of what allowed an individual to master a life passage. However, the may provide some solace and inspiration for those experiencing upheaval. For larger self-help collections. William Abrams, Portland State Univ. Lib., Ore. 1988.
