Reviews - What do customers think about A Good Friend for Bad Times: Helping Others Through Grief?

Offering both general and specific advice  Nov 5, 2004
A licensed social worker and a professional bereavement counselor pool their years of experience in A Good Friend for Bad Times: Helping Others Through Grief, a Christian resource for helping friends and loves ones cope with terrible loss. Offering both general and specific advice, especially for dealing with the cruel reality of death, A Good Friend for Bad Times emphasizes the importance of being there, and describes helpful means of emotional and physical suppport in the first weeks, the first month, and the first year after experiencing a death. Highly recommended.
Best book available to help others  Oct 17, 2004
The book's authors have obviously spent significant time counseling others through periods of grief and the book shows it. Sometimes these types of books are written by scholastic types and not someone who knows what it's like to deal with issues first hand. Easy to read and to understand, this should be the first book you pick up when you want to help someone through tough times.
Excellent Tool - how to help others  Sep 25, 2004
This is fine resource & most people will find helpful hints & ideas to help their friends deal with the loss of a love one. Written in such a way which it can benefit those who lose a loved one or those who want to aid someone who has lost someone, it is easy to read & organized so it can be read from cover to cover or just pick up a chapter for a quick read.
Everyone who cares about people should read this book!  Sep 17, 2004
Everyone knows someone who is grieving at one time or another. This book is a practical guide on understanding and helping your friends and loved ones through these difficult times. I wish a few of my co-workers had read it when I was suffering from the loss of a child. This should be required reading for employers and supervisors.
