Recognizing that depression is a normal and natural component of grief, this compassionate guide helps mourners understand their depression, express it in healing ways, and know when they may be experiencing a more severe or clinical depression that would be eased by professional treatment. It proposes that grieving people do not necessarily need to be diagnosed with depression following the death of a loved one and guides them through exercises to express their depression in healthy ways. In a society where mourning and melancholia are often ignored, this book gives mourners the supported and reassurance necessary to understand and appreciate that their depression is a regular part of the grieving process.

This work book was written as a companion to the Grief Helpline for the very purpose of helping people to heal after a loss. Loss is a common reality for everyone. Grief is the common result.Learning how to recover from loss can be one of the most difficult issues a person will ever face. Grief floods us with emotions and questions that demand to be answered. But, few of us are ever taught how to heal and truly live again.This workbook guides the reader along by discussing the thoughts and feelings experienced immediately following a loss, and how to get tothe other side of Grief. Take time each day and complete these exercises to learn more about how to live with grief. Also, be sure to write in yourreflections at the end of each week. It is designed to be used as a tool in the healing process. By reading, meditating, and journaling on the subjects contained within, the reader can journey along the path one day at a time, to a new, joy filled life. While there are several books and programs that relate to grief, this workbook is unique. But for my readers, who are often those who are grieving a loss of some kind on this day, it can feel difficult to really find anything that we could be grateful for when we are in such pain. And this is a place where I have been in the past, too. But I'd like you to know that just because you are hurting so deeply from the death of someone close, or the divorce, or the financial loss, or whatever you are dealing with, it is acceptable to still feel times of joy. Sometimes we won't allow ourselves to delve into the joy bucket for fear of how others might judge us ("How can she look so happy when her father just died?"). Or when we ourselves feel guilty because we're not grieving properly. Well I'm here to tell you that there is no 'right' way to grieve. There is no 'right' timing when grief is finished. There is no 'right' way you can please all your family and friends and I don't want you to try, because, quite frankly, if they are putting guilt on you, nothing you do will make them happy anyway. It's time for them to get their own life and build their own happiness after someone's death. The only person's grief you are responsible for is your own. You can help soothe another family member and listen to them, but ultimately it's their journey and they will undoubtedly walk it in a different manner and timing than you, but that's just fine. We aren't all the same and we don't all grieve the same as another family member. So on this Thanksgiving, take some time to value what you do have in your life. Honor the great memories you shared with your loved one who is no longer here. Share those memories with those whom you will spend this day...aloud of course. And even if you think it will be painful to even bring up their name at dinner, it probably will be and tears may be shed and, guess what, it's absolutely ok. And, yes, even if it's been a dozen years, holidays can be hard thinking how you'd really love for them to be sitting at the table next to you just one more time. So shed the tears and raise a glass to their memory. Talk about them, share what makes your life great at this point in your life. Share how they shaped your life for the better. And mostly realize just how far you have come in your journey. You are still moving forward, you are still moving toward your dreams, and you can still find things to be grateful for. Right now, you may feel like the scattered pieces of a broken puzzle. Honor that feeling, but also take comfort in knowing that the pieces of a puzzle can be reshuffled, rearranged, and pieced together to form a new picture. As you learn to create a new reality for yourself, temper your expectations with compassion and gentleness. Slowly, gently, I have begun to focus on my loved one's life-not the death-and that has made all the difference.

“Let me know if there is anything I can do.” This well-meaning offer is frequently expressed when a relative or friend suffers a death or other heart-wrenching loss such as divorce, termination of a job, having to put a parent in a nursing home or Alzheimer’s facility, loss of one’s home, or the “empty nest” syndrome. This book moves beyond that offer and other platitudes and gives practical steps to take to help alleviate the pain of loss—the heartbreak from a variety of shattering experiences. These steps are drawn straight from real-life experiences; the stories of people demonstrate how one or more of these seven steps helped them turn grief of futility and despair into understanding, faith, and hope.

Grief can be your best friend, or your worst enemy. Whether we are grieving for a loved one or for a time in our lives that has passed, each loss we face brings with it an element of change. Our abilities to step out of the old and adjust to the new can often be held back by our fear of these changes, preventing us from defining a new, positive pathway. Whatever your loss, and however you are adjusting to it, this book can help you move forward into a state of acceptance. Whether you keep it by your bedside, in your desk, or tucked into a bag, Good Grief is the little voice telling you that you can do it, and that you are not alone.

When your dreams get derailed, the culprit can usually be found hiding in your emotional life. It is a pattern of attitudes, habits, or relationships that won't allow you to move forward, no matter how much you tell yourself you want to. Negative felings and unhealthy beliefs may have slowed you down and locked you up for years, getting in the way of your best intentions. You may need help breaking free from: Shame-because it locks you into your past Procrastination-because you are afraid to try Depression-because you have not grieved your sorrows Unhealthy Relationships-because they distract you from your unique purpose in life These restrictive emotional traps needlessly deprive you of intimacy, trust, friendships, good feelings, rest, and peace of mind. By challenging them, and the self-destructive behaviors that may accompany them, you can learn to live life in a totally new way.
