This is a practical guide to help readers work through their grief via expressive therapies and activities, based on the techniques Claudia Coenen honed as a professional counselor after the unexpected loss of her husband.

This book provides clear methods to process grief, experience its pain and learn how to live fully again. Readers are encouraged to completely engage with their grief through storytelling, self-care and ritual, and honest reflection. The book navigates the reader through the healing process while allowing them the freedom to explore their pain in a way that best fits their unique situation. Eschewing the idea of a 'quick-fix' to grief, it suggests ways in which tragedy and loss can be a springboard for rejuvenation and transformation.


'In Shattered by Grief, Coenen journeys through the unknown "why's" and "how's" of her husband's untimely death. She navigates these trails with profound authenticity and practical empowerment. She finds ways to be in grief's gaping holes, and to gather its shattered pieces of life and living. Daring to face grief head on, Coenen transforms her holes of loss into moments of healing and wholeness. Coenen reshapes grief's sharp, shattered pieces into a more fluid, life-giving peace - first for herself and family, and now for others as a professional counselor and guide.'
- Dr. Joy Berger, author of Music of the Soul: Composing Life Out of Loss.
