Overview

The Mourning Handbook: The Most Comprehensive Resource Offering Practical and Compassionate Advice on Coping with All Aspects of Death and Dying by Helen Fitzgerald

No one should be left to grieve alone
Even with the help of friends and family, grieving the death of a loved one can be a complex, sometimes overwhelming, process. The Mourning Handbook is written as a companion to those mourners in need of practical and emotional assistance during the trying times before and after the death of a loved one.
Having counseled thousands of people who have experienced loss, Helen Fitzgerald gives special attention to the complex emotions that can accompany especially traumatic situations, such as when a loved one has been murdered, when there have been multiple deaths, when a body has not been recovered, or when the mourner has been the inadvertent cause of death.
Designed to conform to the special needs of the bereaved, The Mourning Handbook is written and organized in an accessible style punctuated by real stories of people who have experienced every kind of loss. With many subchapters and cross references, it can be consulted for a specific problem or read at length.

Faith gave me love and hope to survive. This book provided me with the day-to-day methods on 'how' to survive. Helen Fitzgerald understands the pain associated with the loss of a loved one and has been able to articulate these emotions and the need to deal with them, as well as how to live with them, through every chapter. I received many books after my loss, but this one was the most practical and easiest to read. A BIG thank you to Helen Fitzgerald...for informing others that they are not alone.
