Product description

With understanding and wisdom, Harriet Sarnoff Schiff explores the complex feelings people must cope with when a friend or relative dies. She discusses in detail the gradual process of grieving - sorrow, denial, anger, guilt, powerlessness, and finally, acceptance - that mourners go through. Acutely sensitive to the different reactions of widows and widowers, siblings, parents, children, step-relatives, and friends, she offers specific advice and comfort for all. Schiff stresses the need of survivors to share their emotions - an insight gained through interviews with the bereaved and with funeral directors, therapists, and clergymen -and provides information on starting support groups. Schiff's practical approach, sensitivity, and candor make this book an invaluable aid to anyone facing the tragedy and difficulties of bereavement.
