Newly updated and expanded to commemorate its 20th anniversary—this classic resource helps people complete the grieving process and move toward recovery and happiness
Incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on the capacity for happiness. Drawing from their own histories as well as from others’, the authors illustrate how it is possible to recover from grief and regain energy and spontaneity. Based on a proven program, The Grief Recovery Handbook offers grievers the specific actions needed to move beyond loss.
New material in this edition includes:
How to choose which loss you should work on first
How to deal with growing up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional home
Loss of faith
Loss of career
Loss of health
And much, much more.
