Review:

A practical guide for coping with the loss of a parent, this book was written by a journalist who has lost both. Edward Myers makes it clear that no matter how old we are, the death of a parent can be devastating, evoking intense and complex feelings that have long-lasting implications. Comprised of advice from therapists, practices for self-help groups and first-person accounts, Myers covers the grieving process and differentiates between the impact of sudden death and slow decline. He also offers advice for funeral planning, dividing personal property and resolving feelings such as guilt, shame and isolation.

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.
