Reviews - What do customers think about Six Steps for Managing Loss: A Catholic Guide Through Grief?
Better for groups than individuals Jan 13, 2000
It is very short (48 pages) and is in more of a workbook format, with a section on one topic then some open-ended questions for the reader to fill out, discuss with a close friend or write about in a journal. Good place for a starting point on discussions about grief recovery. I would recommend this book in conjunction with another, meatier book on grief, or if bought in conjunction with a journal for the person to write through their feelings or answers to the open-ended questions presented in this book.
Healing steps for the bereved May 31, 1999
There is a great need for attention to be given to the impact of religious faith on the grieving process. This book addresses that need. It is a way to actually go through grief by following the suggestions provided in this book. It is essential reading for caregivers and those who are grief stricken. It is meant to readable and practical in it's presentation.
Excellent resource for individuals or groups Aug 13, 1998
If you are looking for a book which may be used individually or as an outline for a group...this is it. Here is a healing tool for the bereaved. It gives a clear and concise way for coping. It places the loss into the spiritual realm. This is really a unique approach for bereavement.
A Spiritual Program which addresses actual needs. Jul 21, 1998
This book really possesses what is necessary for people suffering a loss to have a way to express and cope. It has a unique way of helping the reader accept the loss and then have new horrizons. It goes beyond a "how to" approach to assist the reader with their own personal faith connections. It clearly illustrates how faith is not something added on..rather it is essential for a healthy and healing outcome. The section on suffering I found especially helpful. This book may be used and reused over and over again.
Very practical and healing approach to loss. Jun 18, 1998
This book clearly lists practical steps to take in order to respond to a loss. It is very helpful and offers ways to experience the spiritual transformations which can happen during critical times.
