Book Excerpt :

Many pastors and lay counselors have had minimal training in clinical methods of grief counseling. Helping Those in Grief is a biblical, practical guide to pastoral counseling written by one of the most respected Christian therapists of our time. This book is the next step after Wright's bestselling The New Guide to Crisis and Trauma Counseling. Wright brings more than forty years of clinical and classroom experience to this topic and shares real-life dialogues to demonstrate healthy, healing counseling sessions. Readers will learn how to counsel and coach both believers and nonbelievers who are grieving, how to walk alongside them, and how to help them find the path to complete restoration.

Book Short Summary:

An illustrated journal for meeting grief with honesty and kindness—honoring loss, rather than packing it away With her breakout book It’s OK That You’re Not OK, Megan Devine struck a chord with thousands of readers through her honest, validating approach to grief. In her same direct, no-platitudes style, she now offers How to Carry What Can’t Be Fixed—a journal filled with unique, creative ways to open a dialogue with grief itself. “Being allowed to tell the truth about your grief is an incredibly powerful act,” she says. “This journal enables you to tell your whole story, without the need to tack on a happy ending where there isn’t one.” Grief is a natural response to death and loss—it’s not an illness to be cured or a problem to be fixed. This workbook contains no clichés, timetables, or checklists of stages to get through; it won’t help you “move past” or put your loss behind you. Instead, you’ll find encouragement, self-care exercises, and daily tools, including: •Writing prompts to help you honor your pain and heartbreak • On-the-spot practices for tough situations—like grocery store trips, the sleepless nights, and being the “awkward guest” • The art of healthy distraction and self-care • What you can do when you worry that “moving on” means “letting go of love” • Practical advice for fielding the dreaded “How are you doing?” question • What it means to find meaning in your loss • How to hold joy and grief at the same time • Tear-and-share resources to help you educate friends and allies • The “Griever’s Bill of Rights,” and much more Your grief, like your love, belongs to you. No one has the right to dictate, judge, or dismiss what is yours to live. How to Carry What Can’t Be Fixed is a journal and everyday companion to help you enter a conversation with your grief, find your own truth, and live into the life you didn’t ask for—but is here nonetheless.

Book Short Summary:

Facing the loss of a loved one in a death-avoidant culture can be excruciating. Grievers may be expected to put on a brave face, to "move on" quickly, and to seek medication if they are still grief-stricken after an "acceptable" amount of time. Psycho­therapist Judy Heath draws on extensive experience as a grief specialist in private practice to help those struggling with the anguish of loss. Addressing the myths and misinformation about mourning that still abound today, Heath gently coaches readers to understand that coping with loss is a natural process that our society tends to avoid and hurry people through, often leading to unresolved, lasting grief. No Time for Tears offers practical advice for both short- and long-term recovery, including how to manage rarely discussed physical and emotional changes: feelings of "going crazy" and inability to focus; feeling out of sync with the world, exhausted and chilled, and crushingly lonely. This updated second edition includes new information about medication and discusses various types of loss including that of a parent, child, spouse, friend, or pet. Helpful not only to grievers but also to those who care about, counsel, or employ them, No Time for Tears is an essential resource for grief management and recovery.

Book Short Summary:

When the New York Times ran Patrick O’Malley’s story about the loss of his infant son—and how his inability to “move on” challenged everything he was taught as a psychotherapist—it inspired an unprecedented flood of gratitude from readers. What he shared was a truth that many have felt but rarely acknowledged by the professionals they turn to: that our grief is not a mental illness to be cured, but part of the abiding connection with the one we’ve lost. Illuminated by O’Malley’s own story and those of many clients that he’s supported, readers learn how the familiar “stages of grief” too often mislabel our sorrow as a disorder, press us to “get over it,” and amplify our suffering with shame and guilt when we do not achieve “closure” in due course. “Sadness, regret, confusion, yearning—all the experiences of grief—are a part of the narrative of love,” reflects O’Malley. Here, with uncommon sensitivity and support, he invites us to explore grief not as a process of recovery, but as the ongoing narrative of our relationship with the one we’ve lost—to be fully felt, told, and woven into our lives. For those in bereavement and anyone supporting those who are, Getting Grief Right offers an uncommonly empathetic guide to opening to our sorrow as the full expression of our love.

Book Short Summary:

Helping Grieving People – When Tears Are Not Enough is a handbook for care providers who provide service, support and counseling to those grieving death, illness, and other losses. This book is also an excellent text for academic courses as well as for staff development training. The author addresses grief as it affects a variety of relationships and discusses different intervention and support strategies, always cognizant of individual and cultural differences in the expression and treatment of grief. Jeffreys has established a practical approach to preparing grief care providers through three basic tracks. The first track: Heart – calls for self-discovery, freeing oneself of accumulated loss in order to focus all attention on the griever. Second track: Head – emphasizes understanding the complex and dynamic phenomena of human grief. Third track: Hands – stresses the caregiver's actual intervention, and speaks to lay and professional levels of skill, as well as the various approaches for healing available. Accompanying these three motifs, the Handbook discusses the social and cultural contexts of grief as applied to various populations of grievers as well as the underlying psychological basis of human grief. Throughout the book, Jeffreys presents the role of the caregiver as an Exquisite Witness to the journey of grief and pain of bereaved family and friends, and also to the path taken by dying persons and their families. The second edition of Helping Grieving People remains true to the approach that has been so well received in the original volume. It includes updated research findings and addresses new information and developments in the field of loss, grief and bereavement.

A little walk through the moments, feelings and barriers you might encounter, whoever you are and whatever you lost. From understanding what kind of griever you are to forging your new path in life, it aims to start a conversation you'll want to keep having.

Book Short Summary:

Offering a wealth of information in a small amount of space, Crenshaw leads his readers through the seven stages of the bereavement process, noting carefully particular developmental stages in life will affect the way in which the process is handled. He then gives several sensible suggestions to those who are often called to helpo others deal with their grief. Afterwards, the six major chapters of the book are devoted to the particular needs of the bereaved at each stage of the life cycle, from preschooler to senior. Each chapter contains accounts of typical behaviors and warning signs for which the bereaved may require more intensive or professional psychiatric help. This book should prove extremely useful for those who want a practical guide for helping others handle bereavement." - Mary Deelev Booklist David Crenshaw worte Bereavement ...for all who work with grieving children and adults". It is a useful tool for those who help others through the grief process. It is written in jargonless, understandable language, with an emphasis on practicality. Crenshaw focuses upon seven tasks of mourning that he believes must be achieved in order to resolve a loss. These tasks are impacted by developmental factors in differing life stages. Specific grief issues of children - including infants, toddlers, preschool and school-aged children, as well as teens, young adults, adults in midlife, and elderly adults are discussed and illustrated with case examples. Examples of helpful and not-so-helpful responses to the bereaved are also provided. Crenshaw's style is down-to-earth and readable (he attributes this to having been raised in a small farming community in Missouri where people want to know what to do and how to do it!) His use of case examples allows the reader to stay emotionally involved as well as clearly illustrating his points. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who works with people in any capacity; for all people at some time in their lives deal with grief and loss. Lin Wagner Gatekeeper Outreach Coordinator

Book Short Summary:

Loss is a part of every life, and grief related to loss is inescapable. It can result in distress that impacts work, learning, rehabilitation, spiritual beliefs, social relationships, health, mental health, and well-being. Helping professionals who encounter grief reactions in multiple settings are often not trained to identify and respond to the many complex grief-related problems of clients. Without the opportunity to learn how to assess and address grief, many may lack confidence in acknowledging loss and providing effective support. Although grieving is an extremely painful part of life, integration and adjustment are possible, and meaning can be made from loss. Readers will find many examples from caring and resilient students, interdisciplinary professionals, teachers, clients, and family members who have learned to make meaning from loss. The content of the third edition has been significantly influenced by the COVID-19 pandemic, the opioid addiction crisis, and increased awareness of racial trauma and injustice. The book provides a foundation for understanding, assessing, and responding effectively to grief and loss. The content is designed for students and professionals who find themselves working in proximity to loss, trauma, and grief in various capacities—educator, advocate, case manager, counselor, mental health and health care provider, and more. The work is vitally important, and the rewards for helping others cope with grief and loss are substantial.

Book Short Summary:

Grief is like ocean waves, hitting hard against the sand and receding, only to return. Waves of emotion crash, and people say, “I don’t know what to say or do to help.” This book is for them. It’s for you. We all have either lost someone or tried to comfort the bereaved and felt helpless. Every page gives a fresh idea for comforting during the hardest time in someone’s life—perhaps your own. Luann Lee Brown worked as an occupational therapist for twenty years, mostly in psychiatry, helping depressed people in crisis. She volunteered at a local police department helping give death notifications or supporting a family and friends when a loved one committed suicide, as well as other roles during horrific times. This book includes a section on helping those left behind after suicide or murder and sections on how to help children in the throes of grief. May the waves of grief soften and become less treacherous. May the sun shine and sparkle on the ocean of your or your loved ones’ lives. May you feel the joy of serving another while you heal from your near drowning in an ocean of your own loss.

A Grief Observed comprises the reflections of the great scholar and Christian on the death of his wife after only a few short years of marriage. Painfully honest in its dissection of his thoughts and feelings, this is a book that details his paralysing grief, bewilderment and sense of loss in simple and moving prose. Invaluable as an insight into the grieving process just as much as it is as an exploration of religious doubt, A Grief Observed will continue to offer its consoling insights to a huge range of readers, as it has for over fifty years.

Book Short Summary:

One of the most devastating losses a family can experience is the loss of a child. Whether the loss is through illness, accident, drugs, suicide, or other tragedy, the pain is overwhelming and often paralyzing. Often we think of "loss" as death. However, in our broken world there are many ways to suffer the loss of a child. This book discusses how a family can learn to cope with loss of a child due not only to death, but also to a custody battle, addiction (and other choices a child makes), chronic illness, crime (human trafficking, kidnap), and other issues where hopes and dreams disappear. Wright helps readers through the grieving process and assists them in finding God's grace and comfort during this very difficult time of life. This book is unique as it is for parents as well as grandparents.
