Loss can be overwhelming, and recovery often seems daunting, if not impossible. With great compassion and insight, Bob Deits provides essential advice along with practical exercises for navigating the uncertain terrain of loss and grief. This new edition of the classic guide is completely updated, with new information on enduring catastrophic losses, using technology to foster connection and maintain support networks, and new anecdotes based on Deits's counseling and his personal experience. Life After Loss helps readers find ways to create a new normal in life that is necessarily different but equally meaningful.
