Overview

The Healing Power of Grief is Gloria Linterman's twenty-four month story about morning and healing following the death of her precious husband, Rick. It also features Dr. Marilyn Stolzman's (a psychotherapist specializing in grief counseling) vision for healing, as she offers tools, not psychobabble, as a blueprint, to help us face our loss, mourn, and eventually, heal.
Included within the book is a 100+ page workbook, The Power of Thought, which guides readers through the time sequences of grief and healing.
"As the CEO of a mortuary and memorial park many grief recovery books cross my desk each year. All too often these books contain essential information but the presentation is imposing and esoteric. The Healing Power of Grief is written in everyday language and in an easy to understand format. The anecdotes are real life and relate to all who are in the successive stages of the grieving process. The workbook exercises are clear, helpful and direct the participant with meaningful topics. I would be proud to have this book in our library." —Mark Friedman, CEO, Hillside Memorial Park and Mortuary

The Healing Power of Grief and The Healing Power of Love don¿t just help you recover from the loss of a loved one, but show you how to go on from there to find new love. Unlike some other books, which may be written in an academic style or expect you to subscribe to a certain faith, these books are written in an understandable language and have practical tools you can use on your own to help you through this difficult period in your life. I particularly liked the positive, affirming manner in which they¿re written. The authors don¿t preach to you or commiserate. As you work through the program, you¿ll gain a better understanding of what¿s going on inside you and become better each day at dealing with it. Reading about how others have handled similar losses makes you feel less alone. I recommend these books to anyone who is experiencing grief, not just after a loved one has died, but also after the break-up of a relationship.

My beloved wife of fifty four years passed three years and nine months ago and the word 'devastation' would hardly describe my feelings of loss. I have just finished reading Ms. Lintermans book and for the first time since the sudden and unexpected death of my wife I have, through her words, come to grip with many of the feelings of guilt that have been stifling my emotions. In brief I am now on a path of 'Continuation' of what is left of my life...Thank you Ms. Lintermans!

Thank you to Ms. Lintermans and Ms. Stolzman for showing us the way and helping us through our grieving process. Once I opened the book, through many tears, I could not put it down. Everyone deals with grief in their own way however this book provides credence for self expression and dealing with each day as it's own entity. I look forward to exploring The Healing Power of Love by the same authors.

I want to tell everyone who has lost a partner or spouse, to put this book at the top of their list. I particularly enjoyed author Gloria Lintermans¿s insights and her candor in sharing the details of her determined effort to find a new life. The real-life stories of others, the journaling section, and the comprehensive list of resources also set this book apart .
