In this program, Eleanor Silverberg uses examples to describe the 3-A's, Acknowledge Assess Assist, applied as a self-monitoring coping tool to help you through challenging circumstances of adversity.
A basic assumption of the 3-A tool is that wherever there is adversity, there is situational loss.
Situational loss is the loss of a person, thing or quality resulting from alteration of a life situation including changes related to illness, body image, environment and death. (Mosby's Medical Dictionary, 8th Ed.)
Listen in as Eleanor explains the different types of loss that can stem from and accompany an adverse circumstance.
