The new definitive text on grieving in today's world.

With advances in modern medicine, the nature of death and dying has undergone a dramatic shift. A diagnosis of a life-threatening disease is not always an immediate death sentence, and one can survive months or even years before succumbing to a terminal illness. It can give us the gift of more time with our loved ones-but it can also complicate the grieving process, prolonging the emotional pain, bringing family issues to the forefront, and creating new challenges for everyone involved.

Published in collaboration with Harvard Health Publications, Saying Goodbye explores what this means for those who may be left "living with death" for an extended period of time. Guiding readers through this complex journey, Okun and Nowinski introduce and explore its five stages-crisis, unity, upheaval, resolution, and renewal-and offer a road map that will help readers navigate their way through the realities of death and dying.
