Auz began his studies in grief recovery in 1978 and through the years has conducted extensive research in the area of organizational grief recovery. The loss of both his parents in 1997, less than six months apart, caused him to probe even deeper into the issues of death and grief.
Maureen Lyons Andrews is the founder of her local parish's grief recovery program, and she served as an active member of several bereavement programs in the south suburbs of Chicago. As a direct result of Andrews' efforts, many churches, hospitals, and funeral homes in Chicagoland offer grief counseling, recovery, and support programs.

Reviews - What do customers think about Handbook for Those Who Grieve: What You Should Know and What You Can Do During Times of Loss?

Help for the Bereaved  Mar 15, 2003
When I read this book I was astounded at the conciseness of the information provided. It offers help for those who have lost a loved one and also to those who are friends and relatives and coworkers of the bereaved. There are sample letters to send to those who are grieving.

I work with people who are grieving and the response to those to whom I have given the book was overwhlmingly positive.

I hardily recommend highly!!
