Item description for Living in the Shadow of the Ghosts of Your Grief: A Guide for Life, Living and Loving by Alan D. Wolfelt...
Explaining how multitudes of North Americans are carrying the pain of all types of loss--not just the deaths of loved ones but also the loss of a spouse through divorce, children who leave home, and the decline of health as they age or get sick--this balanced resource empowers mourners and grief counselors to turn grief into an experience to be learned from. Defining the varieties of heartache and its consequences, this effective guide explores how to inventory, understand, embrace, and reconcile one's accumulated sorrow through a five-phase "catch-up" mourning process. Readers will learn to use a spiritual and holistic approach to examine and integrate the ignored loss from their pasts, so that they can go on to live fuller, more balanced lives.

Wolfelt Understands the Grieving Heart Aug 16, 2008
I had the privilege of attending a workshop given by Dr. Wolfelt. His common sense (and heartfelt) understanding of grief and grieving were a wonderful definition of the work I do as a hospice bereavement volunteer. I learned so much! I cannot recommend all of his books enough ~ whether you work with grief, or are experiencing it yourself, his books can give you an understanding and road map of the strange terrain you find yourself in. I heartily recommend them.
