This book promotes understanding of grieving persons, emphasizes respect for their individuality, encourages active coping, and guides those who help bereaved persons. Thomas Attig argues that grieving is not a clinical problem to be solved or managed by others; rather, it is a normal process of relearning the world and relationships (including those with the deceased, fellow survivors, God, and oneself) in the aftermath of loss. He utilizes real life stories as examples of grief presenting distinctive challenges and opportunities to the bereaved, among them a reexamination of their own lives from daily routines to the very meaning of their existence. Because the issues raised in this book are universal, it should be read by clinicians, instructors, and students on death and dying.
