The Age of Overwhelm: Strategies for the Long Haul

by Laura van Dernoot Lipsky Author

Learn how to cope with everyday life in a way that doesn't harm ourselves or others. We all have our own shit that sits precariously close to the fan, and we don't always know how to deal with it. In The Age of Overwhelm, Laura van Dernoot Lipsky, author of the seminally useful Trauma Stewardship, makes the case that the overwhelm and burnout you may be feeling isn't your fault—it's the air we breathe—and discusses strategies for coping with interpersonal difficulties, the feeling that we need to solve the world's problems from climate change to war and injustice, and our own sense of overriding anxiety, all while mitigating harm and promoting equity and decency and setting us up to survive for the long fight and not burn out before we can achieve our full potential.
