Imagine if we treated broken hearts with the same respect and concern we have for broken arms? Psychologist Guy Winch urges us to rethink the way we deal with emotional pain, offering warm, wise, and witty advice for the broken-hearted. Real heartbreak is unmistakable. We think of nothing else. We feel nothing else. We care about nothing else. Yet while we wouldn’t expect someone to return to daily activities immediately after suffering a broken limb, heartbroken people are expected to function normally in their lives, despite the emotional pain they feel. Now psychologist Guy Winch imagines how different things would be if we paid more attention to this unique emotion—if only we can understand how heartbreak works, we can begin to fix it. Through compelling research and new scientific studies, Winch reveals how and why heartbreak impacts our brain and our behavior in dramatic and unexpected ways, regardless of our age. Emotional pain lowers our ability to reason, to think creatively, to problem solve, and to function at our best. In How to Fix a Broken Heart he focuses on two types of emotional pain—romantic heartbreak and the heartbreak that results from the loss of a cherished pet. These experiences are both accompanied by severe grief responses, yet they are not deemed as important as, for example, a formal divorce or the loss of a close relative. As a result, we are often deprived of the recognition, support, and compassion afforded to those whose heartbreak is considered more significant. Our heart might be broken, but we do not have to break with it. Winch reveals that recovering from heartbreak always starts with a decision, a determination to move on when our mind is fighting to keep us stuck. We can take control of our lives and our minds and put ourselves on the path to healing. Winch offers a toolkit on how to handle and cope with a broken heart and how to, eventually, move on.

Heartbreak can happen in an instant. A phone call that a loved one has passed away sweeps life off its foundation and hurdles one into dark despair. Miscarriage, accident, illness, drugs, murder, or suicide can be an unexpected event in life's journey, and the steps toward healing can be elusive for parents in a fog or friends seeking to bring comfort. Hope for a Broken Heart provides direction and hope for those who have experienced a tragic loss as well as for those who walk beside the bereaved. Twelve candid and varied mothers' stories of the healing journey relate the death of their child and the rugged, yet inspiring path to finding new strength and purpose in their lives. The foreword by Ken Blanchard and the conclusion by Pastor Mike Macintosh speak of their experiences and the power these survivors' candid stories offer the reader. "Thoughts to Ponder" at the end of every story as well as the book discussion questions make this book calming and healing for an individual as well as an excellent grief support group study.
