Publisher's Summary

An instant best seller in the UK, Grief Works is a profoundly optimistic and compassionate handbook for anyone suffering a loss - from the expected death of a parent to the sudden death of a child or spouse - as well as a guide for those who want to help their grieving loved ones.

Death affects us all. Yet it is still the last taboo in our society, and grief is still profoundly misunderstood. So many of us feel awkward and uncertain around death and shy away from talking honestly with family and friends. Julia Samuel, a grief psychotherapist, has spent 25 years working with the bereaved and understanding the full repercussions of loss. In Grief Works Samuel shares case studies from those who have experienced great love and great loss - and survived. People need to understand that grief is a process that has to be worked through, and Samuel shows if we do the work, we can begin to heal. The stories here explain how grief unmasks our greatest fears, strips away our layers of protection, and reveals our innermost selves.

Intimate, clear, warm, and helpful, Grief Works addresses the fear that surrounds death and grief and replaces it with confidence. Samuel is a caring and deeply experienced guide through the shadowy and mutable land of grief, and her book is as invaluable to those who are grieving as it is to those around them. She adroitly unpacks the psychological tangles of grief in a voice that is compassionate, grounded, real, and observant of those in mourning. Divided into case histories grouped by who has died - a partner, a parent, a sibling, and a child as well a section dealing with terminal illness and suicide - Grief Works shows us how to live and learn from great loss.
