Overview

Too often people suffering the aftermath of a suicide suffer alone. As the survivor of a person who has ended his or her own life, you are left a painful legacy — and not one that you chose. Healing After the Suicide of a Loved One will help you take the first steps toward healing. While each individual becomes a suicide survivor in his or her own way, there are predictable phases of pain that most survivors experience sooner or later, from the grief and depression of mourning to guilt, rage, and despair over what you have lost.
You may be torturing yourself with repetitive questions such as "What if...?" "Why didn't we...?" and "Why, why, why?" Healing After the Suicide of a Loved One will steer you away from this all-too-common tendency to blame yourself and will put you on the path to healing and recovery. Remember, your wounds can heal and you can recover. Filled with case studies, excellent information, valuable advice, and a completely up-to-date reading list and directory of suicide support groups nationwide, this valuable book will give you the strength and hope to go on living.

    Highly recommended

    Following a very good friend's suicide last summer, I read this book which helped me more than any of the others I had read. It is broken down by chapter according to the relationship to the suicide: parent, sibling, friend, child which really helps.

    Highly Recommended

    I ordered this book to understand what my boyfriend was going through, emotionally, as a result of a loved one's act. It was extremely helpful to me in understanding his mood swings and his guilt. It not only tells you what you go through, but also give ways of understanding that it is normal for you to have those feelings, and ways of dealing with those feelings. It gives real accounts of people who have struggled with the same emotions and conquered them. It leaves you feeling like there IS hope to move forward with your life and everything will be okay eventually.
