Reviews - What do customers think about Mourning After Suicide (Looking Up)?
An excellent intro. to help for newly grieving survivors. Jan 7, 1998
This booklet, short, clear, easy to read, is good for someone newly grieving loss of a loved one to suicide. It offers comfort and hope that we can heal; it 'normalizes' the grieving and healing processes of post-suicide, letting many know that what they're experiencing is normal. Reference to spirituality is in a gentle, non-invasive way which I find even many atheists haven't felt was offensive, and those with spiritual beliefs can identify with it. The raw honesty of the author sharing her experience of losing her son to suicide humanizes the experience and again, can be comforting. It's more than a pamphlet but not a whole book; a nice introduction to the subject. It isn't trying to promote anything in particular except that help, peer or professional, is effective and available. As a professional, when working with survivors of a loved one's suicide, I strongly recommend it as the first reading to do.
