This work includes a foreword by John D Morgan, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy, Coordinator for Kings College Center for Education about Death and Bereavement, Ontario, Canada. This practical resource guides the reader though all aspects of the grieving process and offers thought-provoking and inspirational advice on support. With exercises, tips, and contacts for further assistance, "Finding a Sacred Oasis in Grief" provides a comprehensive understanding of this potentially difficult and complex topic. It examines different types of grief and various approaches, along with reference guides to particular religions and their traditions adopting a comprehensive, multi-faith approach. Pastoral care providers and religious leaders will find the unique, hands-on approach invaluable, as will members of support organisations and volunteer carers. It is also ideal for seminary and ministry students, counsellors, therapists and other care professionals. "Gives caregivers the tools to help dying and grieving persons face the best and worst that life has to offer. It is the worst, because death means the end of the attachments that make life worthwhile. It is the best, because it shows us what is truly meaningful and important in life. Mortality is a great gift if we have the knowledge and the courtesy to face it." - John D Morgan, in the Foreword.

Grief. It's a messy, hard path...yet it's a journey everyone will take at some point in life. When men walk that road, they often find they're not given the freedom to grieve as they need to. Author Jonathan Fann has been there, having lost two children and his father in less than 18 months. Grieve like a Man offers men a practical guide to navigating the path of grief in a culture where men are taught to be tough. The author also provides insight for wives, mothers, sisters, and friends into how men grieve differently than women and how they can come alongside the men in their lives who are hurting from a loss. Readers will learn how to face grief that occurs, not just in the case of death, but also during the loss of a marriage, jobs, and even a man's hopes and dreams. An encouraging book for every man dealing with loss.

The book covers how to deal with grief in schools. Grief reactions of children and adolescents are described and reasons for grief are presented: Death due to chronic illness, sudden deaths such as suicide, accident, and severe targeted violence. Appropriate intervention measures are presented. Finally, the limitations of these intervention measures in schools are discussed. This book is a translation of the original German 1st edition Trauer an Schulen by Matthias Böhmer and Georges Steffgen, published by Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature in 2021. The translation was done with the help of artificial intelligence (machine translation by the service DeepL.com). A subsequent human revision was done primarily in terms of content, so that the book will read stylistically differently from a conventional translation. Springer Nature works continuously to further the development of tools for the production of books and on the related technologies to support the authors.

• How can I best help someone who has lost a loved one? • How do I talk to a child about the death of a family member? • What do I need to think about before I plan a funeral? Confusion, bewilderment, and a lack of direction commonly surface in the aftermath of a death. It’s also the time when dealing with the issues and emotions of the experience can lead to making hasty or unwise decisions. In this revised edition of Handbook for Those Who Grieve, Martin M. Auz and Maureen Lyons Andrews offer concise, practical, topic-based lists and suggestions to help people immediately after a loss. Rather than philosophizing, theologizing, or rationalizing, the authors draw on their research and personal experiences to provide short but solid answers to help grieving people successfully deal with the countless issues and varied emotions that a person’s death is sure to thrust upon them.

Conventional grief models focus on the bereaved, including actions that they need to take to get back to normalcy following the death of a loved one. This book suggests that it might be helpful in the grieving process to focus on the deceased, instead. Research points to the benefits of altruistic acts and thoughts, including improvements in mood. Altruistic acts and thoughts also could be extended to the deceased, who in death have experienced a loss as well. By taking on the perspective of and being empathic toward the deceased, a "response shift" occurs that could result in mood improvement and happiness in the bereaved. The book provides guidelines for this alternative grief model in the death of a child, of a teenager, of a spouse/partner, and of a sibling; and in multiple deaths and persistent grief experience among others. Based on motivational principles, a workbook has also been provided for monitoring progress in coping with bereavement. Each chapter includes a list of comprehension questions and additional readings to help the reader further explore the topic at hand. This book would be useful in a course on death, dying and bereavement; to healthcare practitioners/bereavement counsellors; and to scholars in death, dying and bereavement across different fields including Psychology, Sociology, Social Work, Public Health and Religion.

A Grief Like No Other is the book no one wants to ever have to buy; sadly, many people continue to need it. From 9/11 to Cindy Sheehan's son – from mass tragedies like the recent London bombings to Law and Order type crimes that make the news only to be replaced by another name. As such, more people are left with the aftermath of dealing with the violent death of a loved one. It brings its own special brand of grieving since victim's families can spend years dealing with legal ramifications, guilt, and a myriad of other circumstances that don't accompany "normal" deaths. Kathleen O'Hara knows both sides of this coin. As a therapist, she has counseled hundreds of people dealing with grief. As a mother, she saw her worst fears realized when her college-aged son was brutally murdered in 1999. In the aftermath of Aaron's murder, O'Hara developed the seven stage journey that is at the heart of A Grief Like No Other. Although this is a book for those left behind in the aftermath of violence, it offers concrete and practical steps and stages, allowing family and friends safe passage through this incredibly harrowing journey.

We see, hear, know and think about death almost every day of our lives. We see and hear it on TV, radio and movies. We read about it in newspapers, on the Internet and in non-fiction and fictional books. We know it with every personal change and loss we experience. And we think about it consciously or unconsciously when the reality of mortality hits home. Good Grief - Love, Loss & Laughter is a collection of commentaries, stories and true-life events from the highly acclaimed newspaper column Good Grief. These are not your run-of-the-mill Ms. Manners type advice letters, though some are surprising and humorous. Good Grief includes real people, diverse circumstances and practical solutions. You won't find a lot of theoretical, academic or know-it-all poppycock in this concise collection, nor will the reader be required to wade through a textbook of dogmatic cliches. This work makes it easy to access an area of interest and discover down to earth, tried and true exercises, suggestions and solutions for living with loss. Some of the life and death issues presented in these pages include expected or sudden loss; male and female reactions; funerals; personal choices; pet loss; loss of a child; suicide; intimacy after loss; and keeping those who have died present in our lives.
