9780060952730: The Grief Recovery Handbook: The Action Program for Moving beyond Death, Divorce and Other Losses

Updated for its 20th anniversary, this classic guide that has helped so many people get through loss, now has even more to offer. The new material in this edition will include specific guidelines that will show readers how to choose which grief or loss they should work on first. In addition, losses that were not addressed in the earlier editions will be discussed, such as: growing up in an alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional home; Alzheimer's/dementia; loss of faith, loss of career, loss of heath; and others. Incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on your capacity for happiness. Drawing from their own histories, as well as from others, the authors illustrate what grief is and how it is possible to recover and regain energy and spontaneity.Based on a proven program, "The Grief Recovery Handbook" offers grievers the specific actions needed to complete the grieving process and accept loss. For those ready to regain a sense of aliveness, the principles outlined here make this a life-changing book.

Review:

"This book is required for all my classes. The more I use this book, the more I believe that unresolved grief is the major underlying issue in most people's lives. It is the only work of its kind that I know of that outlines the problem and provides the solution."--Bernard McGrane, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology, Chapman University

From the Author:

I co-wrote it, I read it, I still love it. RF
It is rare that authors have the opportunity to amend things that they have written. During the ten years following the publication of the original Grief Recovery Handbook, we have enhanced our ability to help people whose lives have been devastated or diminished by significant emotional losses of any kind. We are pleased and thrilled that we have been able to upgrade the principles and actions of Grief Recovery so that millions more people can benefit from this program. We hope and trust that you will find the information, the style, and the actions of recovery accessible and life transforming. We know that it is possible to have a life of meaning and value even though overwhelming losses have broken your heart and drained your energy. We hope that the title - Grief Recovery - which puts two words together that are rarely joined, will encourage you to take the actions outlined in the book. We also hope that you will take courage from the fact that hundreds of thousands of grieving people have been helped by earlier editions of The Grief Recovery Handbook. Our hearts go with you as you take the journey to completion of the pain caused by your losses.From our hearts to yours, John W. James and Russell Friedman. [June, 1998]
