Good Grief : A Companion for Every Loss

Good Grief : A Companion for Every Loss

Description

With more than three million copies in print, discover timeless wisdom for all who grieve the loss of a job, a friendship, a move, or a loved one.

For more than fifty years Good Grief has helped millions of readers, including NFL players and a former first lady, find comfort, understand their emotions and regain hope after loss. This classic text identifies ten stages of grief -- shock, emotion, depression, physical distress, panic, guilt, anger, resistance, hope, and acceptance -- but recognizing that grief is complex and deeply personal, defines no right way to grieve.

Good Grief offers valuable insights on the emotional and physical responses persons may experience during the natural process of grieving something as small as a change in plans to something as traumatic and final as death. Reflection questions sprinkled throughout the book help readers explore their own experience with each stage of the grieving process.

Good Grief includes a foreword by Dr. Timothy Johnson, a leading communicator of medical health care information. An afterword by the author's daughters tells how the book came to be.

Whether mourning the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage, moving to a new home, or other difficult life changes, Good Grief is a proven steady companion in times of loss and transition.
