Helping Children Heal The premature death of a parent can be devastating for young children—with the consequences far more profound when the parent dies by suicide. Amidst the resulting grief, turmoil and confusion, the surviving parent is faced with the monumental task of tending to the emotional lives of the children left behind. While many books have been written for grieving families, very few focus on the specific needs encountered by children and teens coping with the suicide of a parent. After a Parent’s Suicide: Helping Children Heal addresses the issues every family must face following the trauma of suicide. In this instructive and impassioned work, longtime children’s bereavement counselor and psychotherapist Margo Requarth, M.A., M.F.T., offers pathways through the despair, confusion and fear that follow.

“At the book’s heart are Requarth’s superb explanations of how to explain suicide to children and how children grieve, how grief impacts adolescents, the natural stages of grief, funeral rituals and religious and spiritual perspectives on suicide, and how to help children return to normalcy.  Highly recommended.” – Library Journal

Artful Grief is a decade long study of loss by an art therapist, in the aftermath of her daughter’s suicide. On October 11, 2001, Sharon received a phone call in the middle of the night from the New York City Police Department telling her that her seventeen year old daughter Kristin, had “fallen” from the roof of her college dormitory. So began her journey into the labyrinth of unspeakable grief. As the first year drew to a close she found no comfort in traditional therapy, and no solace in spoken or written words. In surrender to her inner art therapist’s guidance, she began to create collages. She cut and tore images out of magazines and glued them on various size paper. The paper was a safe and sacred container, receptive to the fullness of emotion, story and paradox. Over time there was transformation and healing. Artful Grief A creative road map through violent dying and grief. A dose of “soul medicine” for survivors. A way to retrieve the pieces of a shattered life, with paper, scissors and glue. A resourceful tool for those suffering with complicated grief and/or PTSD. A place for the unspeakable to be seen and heard. A process to quiet the mind and open the heart. A visual experience of trauma images as illustrations of hope. A sample of prophetic dreams and meditations that are illuminating. A heartfelt sharing of “intimate secrets” for understanding and compassion. A surprising “grief gift” that is inspiring.

Real Men Do Cry is packed with practical resources for families living with depression and is a valuable tool for counselors and mental health professionals nationwide.  Resources include: Nine-symptom checklist for depression, Signs of depression and possible suicide risk, actions to avert depression.

It provides the kind of thoughtful and potentially healing information that I wish had been available to the adults in my life when I was a struggling twelve-year-old trying to find my way in the aftermath of my father’s suicide in 1970.”

by Michelle Linn-Gust, Ph.D. &‎ John Peters,‎ M.Suicidology

The journey after the suicide of a loved one is winding, always changing. For the people who want to support the bereaved, or are asked to support the bereaved (professional or volunteer), it can be difficult to understand that winding road, especially because of the stigma that suicide traditionally has held with it. Michelle Linn-Gust, Ph.D., and John Peters, M.Suicidology, have both traveled their own winding roads and now look to teach others in a global perspective not yet seen. Winding Road: A Handbook for Supporting the Suicide Bereaved discusses a myriad of issues around the topic from why suicide happens to helping children cope and how culture and religion take a role in how suicide and suicide grief are viewed. Mostly though, the book offers hope that the people who are supporting the bereaved can help understand the winding road so the bereaved don't have to travel it alone

Save the Teens: Preventing suicide, depression and addiction is a non-fiction book written by a mother who lost her 18 year-old son to suicide in 2005, but it is not a memoir. The author researched all the topics that made her wonder why her only child would perform such a horrendous act; such as teen depression, mood disorders, methamphetamine, addictions, and suicide. After a year of research, she realized she had enough information for a book and wanted to share it with other parents in hopes of saving their teens from a possible suicide. The book opens with the day the author's son took his life (only chapter that is all memoir but it sets the stage perfectly for the rest of the book). The book is set up differently in that the left pages contain the author's son's writing and artwork as well memoir as it pertains to the current chapter which is the research located on the right hand pages. The writings and artwork provide examples of a teen's depression.

Surviving the Suicide Loss of a Sibling, guides the family unit with a road map to navigate suicide grief as individuals and also as part of the family unit with the ultimate goal of strengthening the family even after a devastating suicide loss.

by Amy Zellmer

Winner of the Midwest Book Awards in the “Health” category receiving a silver medal in May 2016.

In February 2014 Amy Zellmer slipped on a patch of ice and fell, forcibly landing on the back of her skull. The impact briefly knocked her out, and when she started to get up, she immediately knew something was very wrong.

Amy had suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and was about to start a journey unlike anything she had ever experienced. Her life had changed in literally a blink of the eye.

This book is a collection of her short articles, most of which were originally published on The Huffington Post.

Learn about what it means to have a TBI as you read about her struggles and frustrations, like the days she can’t remember how to run the microwave, or how she gets lost driving to familiar places. Understand what it’s like to suffer fatigue and exhaustion after doing a simple task that most take for granted. This book is perfect for TBI survivors, their caregivers, friends and loved ones.

It is a great book for survivors to give to their supporters so that they, too, can understand what those with TBI are dealing with on a daily basis.

The Power of Love … And the Possibility of Happy Endings

Daniel was a charismatic bundle of walking contradictions. Socially anxious, widely popular, he lived with the sensitivity of an angel, and the self-destructiveness of a demon. By his early teenage years he had been diagnosed with bipolar and anxiety disorders, ADD and alcohol dependency. By his late teens he was a high school dropout and an opiate addict. At the same time he was beloved and revered by his community of peers. To the world he bore all the trappings of failure. But to his close knit, far-flung friends he was a star and a legend; an irresistible, unforgettable, irreplaceable friend. Daniel died at age 23 from a drug overdose. For the Love of Daniel is an account of his life-a roller coaster ride of sadness and joy, heartache and solace, laughter, tears, tumult and rest. It is also a careful account of Daniel’s after life, and the chain of extraordinary events that moved the hearts and consciousness of those who grieved him. Most of the book is a love story, Daniel’s testament to the unalterable immense power of love, which offers even ultimate human tragedies a softer landing, the possibility of a happy ending.

A Grief Like No Other is the book no one wants to ever have to buy; sadly, many people continue to need it. From 9/11 to Cindy Sheehan's son – from mass tragedies like the recent London bombings to Law and Order type crimes that make the news only to be replaced by another name. As such, more people are left with the aftermath of dealing with the violent death of a loved one. It brings its own special brand of grieving since victim's families can spend years dealing with legal ramifications, guilt, and a myriad of other circumstances that don't accompany "normal" deaths. Kathleen O'Hara knows both sides of this coin. As a therapist, she has counseled hundreds of people dealing with grief. As a mother, she saw her worst fears realized when her college-aged son was brutally murdered in 1999. In the aftermath of Aaron's murder, O'Hara developed the seven stage journey that is at the heart of A Grief Like No Other. Although this is a book for those left behind in the aftermath of violence, it offers concrete and practical steps and stages, allowing family and friends safe passage through this incredibly harrowing journey.

by Michelle A. Wilson Green

follow-up to her first book, Anything Can Happen

"The universe warrants justice. 'Anything Can Happen: The Trial and Now' is Michelle Green’s in-depth exploration of the uncompromising reality of law. A mother’s world shrouded in unimaginable darkness, cries out for light. Her journey seeks retribution for a tragedy that can never truly be avenged. Allowing God’s beacon to light her way should inspire and illuminate the path for all. When her days harbored more darkness than her nights she preserved to confirm the power of faith and once again experience the rainbow. Every man’s destiny brings karma." - Harry Aiken, Jr., Brother of Michelle A. Wilson Green
