Grieving: A Beginner's Guide
Author: Jerusha Hull McCormack
This book is designed to help those in pain -- and specifically those who are coping with how to grieve the death of a loved one-- to imagine the path before them.
There is no sure route on how to grieve. Jerusha McCormack provides instead a series of signposts by which we may find our own path to a new life. "We are all amateurs at grief," she writes, "it comes to us all; we must all go through it. To treat grief as a problem to be fixed, or (worse still) to medicalize it, is to rob us of the extraordinary privilege of encountering this experience on our terms: for each of us has our own way of grieving, and each of us has something special to learn from the process."
For anyone coping with how to grieve, or dealing with loss.
