Recovering after Lossby Bob Deits
Here is a new presentation of the classic guide to emotional recovery after major loss-whether that loss is caused by death, divorce, retirement, job loss, major surgery or the onset of chronic health problems. Author Bob Deits draws on 25 years of pastoral-counseling experience, and numerous first-hand stories, to help readers survive the overwhelming feelings that accompany great loss, and help them learn practical ways to work through their grief and renew their lives. Written simply in a warm, sensitive tone, this book has been passed between countless people in difficult times since it was first published in 1988. This third edition contains new passages and personal stories, as well as a new chapter about sudden loss versus prolonged loss. Readers will find helpful exercises and charts for working through their grief.

Having lost a spouse three years ago, I still am dealing with some of the issues described in this book. I just bought a copy of this book for a friend of mine who lost her spouse last year. I wish someone would have recommended this book to me at the beginning of my healing process. It would have been a biggg help. We hope to form a support group to help others to learn how much we need help in healing. I've been through a grief program right after my loss, but now at this time reading this book has helped me to see I was not crazy and I was not alone as to how I have felt and still feel today. Thanks for this wonderful book.
