Updated to commemorate its 20th anniversary, this classic resource further explores the effects of grief and sheds new light on how to begin to take effective actions to complete the grieving process and work towards recovery and happiness.

Incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on the capacity for happiness. Drawing from their own histories as well as from others', the authors illustrate how it is possible to recover from grief and regain energy and spontaneity.

Based on a proven program, The Grief Recovery Handbook offers grievers the specific actions needed to move beyond loss. New material in this edition includes guidance for dealing with:

·  Loss of faith

·  Loss of career and financial issues

·  Loss of health

·  Growing up in an alcoholic or dysfunctional home

The Grief Recovery Handbook is a groundbreaking, classic handbook that everyone should have in their library.

“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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book - not only for death loss This book is amazing! It was a relief to find out that there's nothing wrong with me when people try to cheer me up by saying things such as "everything happens for a reason" or "don't feel bad" I just get even more upset. This book deals with all kinds of losses, not just death, and the exercises are very helpful. I'm looking forward to completing the relationships with a number of losses in my life. The writers' experiences and advice they share are extremely helpful. Give it a chance if nothing else seems to help you.
