Reviews - What do customers think about Grief Therapy (Elf Self Help)?
Just right Apr 7, 2008
Short bursts of wisdom, just the right amount of material for a grieving person to absorb at one time. Worth twice the price and then some.
Something for Everyone Mar 26, 2008
I found this little book while on a retreat ... and grieving ... several years ago. It contains thoughts and ways of remembering a loved one that will be meaninful to anyone who is dealing a loss, including images that will bring a smile to one's face when smiles are needed. I keep several copies on hand to share with friends who are trying to deal with their own grief.
Truly helpful! Feb 15, 2008
I have purchased more books than I can count on this site but this is the first time that I have been moved to write a review. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has lost someone dear to them. Very simple but powerful advice. If you don't know what to say to someone who has had a loss, give them this book.
In lieu of sympathy cards Jun 27, 2007
I send this little book a couple weeks following the death of a friend or relative in lieu of sending a sympathy card. I have received several feedbacks from friends and relatives who have told me how much this book helped them.
Gentle comfort during your time of need May 29, 2007
This book is part of a series of Elf Self Help books. What I liked about this one is it is helpful while being simple -- just what is needed by someone in the early stages of grief. There are many wonderful books about grief, but few are suitable to give someone only weeks after a loss. Their powers of concentration are impaired, they are deluged with emotions, and the impact of their loss is just setting in. Grief Therapy is easy to grasp, can be taken in small doses or all at once, and is aimed directly at the person grieving. It provides a basic understanding of what is happening to them and what to expect.
I work as a hospice chaplain, and as a member of our church's pastoral care team. We use these booklets whenever we walk with someone on that difficult journey. I highly recommend it. They will thank you.
