Item description for In the Presence of Grief: Helping Family Members Resolve Death, Dying, and Bereavement Issues by Dorothy Stroh Becvar...

Illuminating the impact of loss and grief on our psychological and emotional lives, this book provides vital guidance to ease painful transitions and facilitate healing. The author emphasizes that dealing with the death of a loved one involves more than picking up the pieces and moving on: rather, healing is an ongoing journey on which grief is a constant companion. For those in a supportive role, the focus is on helping the bereaved to navigate the grieving process and, ultimately, to reclaim joy as well as sadness as an integral part of life. Filled with personal narratives and examples, the book demonstrates effective ways to help survivors cope with commonly experienced issues, problems, and concerns.

Reviews - What do customers think about In the Presence of Grief: Helping Family Members Resolve Death, Dying, and Bereavement Issues?

Agreed  Sep 3, 2008
Jeff is absolutely right. This book is a comprehensive understanding of different types of grief. It helped me realize and come to terms with my own grief, a large portion I hadn't actualized at the time. I would actually recommend this book to anybody, especially my colleagues in the healthcare field.
Grief Work and Ministry  Oct 19, 2006
This is a very comprehensive book about grief and understanding the issues facing those who are experiencing grief. It deals with every kind of bereavement issue that you can think of including when death comes unannounced, when death is anticipated, the death of a spouse, child, infant and friend, sibling and parent. I found the chapters on dealing with those on the death of a child or infant and unexpected death to be particularly helpful in trying to help ministry to those who are experiencing these types of loss. Very comprehensive. Dorothy Becvar covers the issues from every angle.
