Based on the bereavement classic I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye, this grief and loss workbook offers step-by-step support and encouragement on your way to understanding and dealing with grief.
Called a support group in your hands by professionals and mourners alike, I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye: A Companion Workbook acts as a comforting touchstone to navigate the unique emotions and challenges when learning how to cope with death. Tapping into their personal histories and drawing on numerous interviews, authors Brook Noel and Pamela D. Blair, PhD, explore sudden loss and its role in the cycle of life.
Using a combination of self-exploration questions, visualization activities, and journaling, grieving readers will learn how to work through their anger, guilt, and loss of purpose towards an uplifting place of endurance and growth. The updated edition also touches upon new discussions, including:
- The unique circumstance of loss
- Men and women's grieving styles
- Religion and faith
- Grief's unanswerable questions.
Combined with the classic grief recovery book I Wasn't Ready to Say Goodbye, this workbook truly places a support vehicle in the hands of those who are mourning.
