From the Back Cover:

In this sensitive guide, Edward Myers offers sensible, compassionate advice to those coping with the death of a parent. He explores the complex feelings adult sons and daughters experience when a parent dies, whether the death follows a long illness, or is sudden, including the special issues raised by a murder or suicide. He discusses the psychological responses to a parent's death, such as shock, depression, and guilt, and offers suggestions on how to cope with and overcome these responses. Practical matters, such as dealing with funerals and estates are also discussed, and a resource guide offers information on support groups, counseling, and additional reading. Enriched by the voices of bereavement experts, clinicians, and individual men and women who have suffered the loss of a parent. When Parents Die will lead the grieving toward insight, growth, solace, and acceptance.

About the Author:

Edward Myers is a freelance writer who, together with Koman, has written The Parenting Survival Kit and How to Mend a Broken Heart.
