Description

The death of a parent before a child reaches adulthood is a cataclysmic event that forever scars that child. No assumption, no expectation, no belief can remain the same. Yet millions of children grow to adulthood on a foundation that is both marred and shaped by such an early loss. The Loss That Is Forever, written by esteemed clinical psychologist Maxine Harris, provides a thoughtful and moving framework for understanding the impact that early loss has on every aspect of adult growth and development.For anyone who has survived the early loss of a parent, as well as for those with a spouse, friend, or lover who has lost a parent in childhood, this powerful book explores all aspects of this life-defining event.An important guide to discovery and understanding, The Loss That Is Forever sheds new light on the overwhelming impact of a parent's early death - and shows how the human spirit can survive and even master the ultimate loss.show more
