Good Grief: A Companion for Every Loss (Paperback)
With more than three million copies in print, Good Grief offers timeless wisdom for all who grieve, no matter how large or small the loss.
For more than fifty years Good Grief has helped millions of readers, including NFL players and a former first lady, find comfort, understand their emotions, and regain hope after loss. This classic text identifies ten stages of grief--shock, emotion, depression, physical distress, panic, guilt, anger, resistance, hope, and acceptance--but, recognizing that grief is complex and deeply personal, defines no "right" way to grieve.
Good Grief offers valuable insights on the emotional and physical responses we all may experience during the natural process of grieving something as small as a change in plans to something as traumatic and final as death. Reflection questions sprinkled throughout the book help you explore your own experience with each stage of the grieving process.
Good Grief includes a foreword by Dr. Timothy Johnson, a leading communicator of medical health care information, and an afterword by the author's daughters that shares how the book came to be and how it continues to impact people today.
Whether you are mourning the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage, moving to a new home, or other difficult life changes, Good Grief is a proven steady companion in times of loss and transition.
