The Best Grief Processing Book Mar 11, 2007
This book is well written and is the best book on grief that I have read. I use it to teach at the seminary, and it transfers to secular settings as well as it addresses spirituality. This is a fantastic book to aid in practical techniques to aid those in need of advancing through various aspects of the grief journey. It aids one in distinguishing from those in normal grief all the way to dysfunctional grief or being stuck in grief. A must have for those in pastoral or any form of counseling!
