Publishers Description Life is marked by a variety of losses, says certified trauma specialist H. Norman Wright. Some are life-changing, such as leaving home, the effects of natural disasters or war, the death of a loved one, or divorce. Others are subtle, such as changing jobs, moving, or a broken friendship. But whether readers encounter family, personal, or community disaster, there is always potential for change, growth, new insight, understanding, and refinement. Writing from his own experience, Wright covers such issues as the meaning of grief, blaming God, and learning how to express and share in times of loss. Now repackaged and updated with additional material, Recovering from Losses in Life will help readers find hope in difficult times. Study questions included.

Grief and Losses Jan 26, 2009
Thank you SO MUCH to H. Norman Wright for his book Recovering from Losses in Life!!! In the last 4 years, I have had 22 stress points or losses including both parents, a divorce, and a best friend. I was having a really hard time when it all came crashing down on me at once because as he says in his book, when they are one on top of the other, you don't have time to deal with one before the next one is upon you. But his book has been a BIG HELP. I've been doing the work and answering the questions and then talking about them with my pastor, and I'm seeing progress that I couldn't see before. I also found the last chapter very helpful in knowing what to say and what NOT to say to others in grieving situation--some of it I learned from experience, but other parts of it were new to me. I'm so glad I found this book on this site when I typed in "grief and loss". God bless you!
Excellent book! Dec 18, 2008
I found this book at the lowest point of a break up/not break up session with my ex boyfriend. Long story short, he was telling me he wanted me back, but not until he did some dating around. I was stuck in pain and depression, wanting him back, but not wanting to wait around for him to do his thing. Reading this book helped me to understand that it is a loss, even if there is some sort of hope for a future. It was Biblically based without cramming religion down your throat. I wrote down so many quotes in my journal from this book, I probably should have bought it instead of checking it out from the library! Anyway, this book helped me to make the decision to remove myself from my exboyfriend's life to let him make his choices without them affecting me.
Recovering from Losses in Life by H. Norman Wright Dec 7, 2007
An absolute MUST for every person. When we think of loss, we can tend to limit it to the loss of a loved one. However we may have lost our lifestyle which we were so comfortable with, our home, lost our dreams, our passions, our motivation for life, our job, forcing us too accept realities that are painful, which paralyse us from moving forward, bringing out anger, frustration and depression. Unless these losses are effectively dealt with, it will be hard to move forward and embrace the new things that lie before us. This book is an excellent tool in equiping a person through the grieving process towards wholeness and new strength. A book for life!
