A List of Reactions, Suggestions and Steps for Coping with Grief
By Bob Baugher, Ph.D.
From “Some Comments Before You Read This Book” (pg 1):
Someone you love has died. This book may be one of the ways to help you begin the sometimes long and painful road of working through your grief. As you read it, please keep in mind that, while you may experience some of the listed reactions that may benefit from some of the suggestions, not all may apply to you. The list of reactions in this book are meant to be brief in order to provide you with an overview of the bereavement process. The reactions do not occur in any particular order (although shock and denial tend to occur first). You may see some of these reactions recycle again as time goes by. The listed reactions do not describe any one person; but from the lists you can identify those reactions that describe you. The suggestions are based upon the experiences of people who have experienced the losses such as the death of a child, sibling, spouse, partner, parent, friend, or other relative.
