Grief is a crazy making, complicated process, a struggle to acknowledge the life changing impact of loss It affects every dimension of the self it is despairing, isolating, and overwhelming It is depriving, mischievous, and keeps you unbalanced Grief is so personally unique and ever changing that getting your hands around it once and for all seems impossible Someone or something is gone, and you are left broken, empty, and afraid This Thing Called Grief shows that although grief and pain may be changing you now, they have the potential to transform your life in a healing way Ellis uses many real life narratives of loss from his therapy practice to help illustrate various ways of grieving, and shows how you can learn from the experience of loss and make your way towards a place of healing transitions and a renewed sense of life....

This Thing Called Grief: New Understandings of Loss Reviews
I'm sure this book would help others going through grief. It wasn't much help to me, but that's not fair to the writer. Like others, I have to work my way through grief the hard way, and it just doesn't go away as easily as so many suggest. Reading about how to handle grief just makes me grieve harder.
I have many books on grief; I work with grieving. This book is one of the best out there. If you need it for yourself or to give to someone else this is the book for you.
This book is written with the person who is suffering from grief in mind, instead of writing from a high and mighty point of view. I learned so much from this author! I have shared it with a person whose mom just died and she shared the same feelings as I have for the book!
The book came in excellent condition, like new. It is one of the most helpful books on the subject I've ever read. The counselor I was seeing added it to her resource library after hearing me talk about it!
My husband lost his father at a very young age. He was in this frame of mind that he would 'get over it'. After reading this book, we both understand that he doesn't need to 'get over it' - he feels 'normal'.
Very helpful book.
Subtitled: New Understandings of Loss
I work in the counseling field and one of my areas of specialization is grief, loss and bereavement for people dealing with death of humans or animals and so many other kinds of losses we all deal with on a daily basis. I have read many books in the area of grief and loss, attended many conferences and taken many courses. This book is one of the best I have ever read! It is comprehensive and compassionate, simply yet eloquently written. It is easily read in one sitting, yet covers all of the important areas that come up for people going through the grieving process. It is an important book to read for anyone dealing with loss, whether the loss is brand new or years old. Kudos to the author! I HIGHLY recommend this book.
