5 Simple Steps to Ease Anxiety, Worry, and Self-Criticism

by Dr. Diane Sanford, author of Life Will Never Be the Same: The Real Mom's Postpartum Survival Guide

photography by Kim Wolterman

Learn stress-reducing skills to cope better with daily anxiety, worry and self-criticism. In this book, Dr. Sanford describes 5 simple steps to make mindfulness practices part of your life. Based on her Stress Less, Live Better Program developed for moms and busy people, these skill sets are practical and simplified to fit in your life. Complete with exercises and opportunities for reflection, this book will guide you on your journey to stress less and live better.

"Mindfulness techniques are very often dismissed as irrelevant practice. However, Dr. Sanford provides her readers with many references proving mindfulness to be an evidence-based practice. The feeling of overall calm throughout the book, left me feeling relaxed and less stressed – a testament to testing out her steps to decrease worry, anxiety, and self-criticism." -Stephanie Carroll BS, IBCLC, CLS, CLC

"Working with Diane and practicing mindfulness has changed my life in so many positive ways. It sounds so simple & easy but it isn’t. It takes understanding, belief and dedication for it to work. Practicing mindfulness has helped me have less anxiety and worry less and enabled me to enjoy life more." -Lynn Campbell

"I first came to see Dr. Sanford intending to tackle my all issues, battle all my demons – to fix all my problems. When she suggested I spend some time each day NOT wrestling with my problems, well … I was skeptical. However, with her guidance, I learned a new approach. Now when a situation arises that feels like a crisis, I can put it aside, focus on better thoughts, wait for a resolution, and later if the problem is still there – and so often it is not – I can deal with it calmly. This new attitude has quite simply changed my life." -Ellen Schmidt

Stories of Love and Loss

by Dan Festa

This book is written as a memoir of 40-plus years of working with human experiences of death, grief, and bereavement. The stories are all similar but uniquely different; similar in the sense that they all relate to varying issues embedded in loss. They are different in how each of these losses occur. The author invites the reader into a world of overwhelming grief brimming with raw emotions. The stories are true and tackle the capricious and unpredictable nature of death in a society that seeks to avoid and overcome the reality of death. Most of the stories are told from the perspective of a hospital chaplain working with real people. While these stories are profoundly sad, the author invites the reader to search for and find snippets of hope through a recommitment to life and living--constantly holding before the reader the dialectic tension that exists between life and death.

By Tim Hoppey

The Good Fire Helmet is a story about being brave in everyday life and believing in yourself.

Ten-year-old Tommy and six-year-old Christian treasure the firefighter's helmet that once belonged to their dad. The chaplain had told the boys, "If you just touch your fingers to this fire helmet, its courage can be given to you. A good fire helmet has been known to do that." Christian believes the helmet makes him brave when he gets a shot at the doctor's office and wards off scary shadows at night, but his big brother isn't so sure. Tommy's real test of courage comes the day Christian falls into the creek and is swept downstream, along with the helmet. Tommy draws on memories of his dad--and the courage he finds inside himself--to rescue his brother.

Songs of Love, Life and Loss

By Paul Alexander

Paul Alexander is a singer, songwriter, psychotherapist, author, actor and performing artist who has shared his music and message of hope throughout the United States and Canada.

His recordings are resource tools being utilized by Church Groups, Funeral Homes, Hospices, and Hospitals as well as bereavement support groups and individual caregivers. Paul's contemporary style combined with his compassionate lyrics and compelling vocal delivery touch the heart and soul of the listener and provide healing and upliftment.

Paul's music has been inspired and enriched through his work as a Psychotherapist and Hospice Social Worker.

These songs of love, life and loss were carefully chosen not only to accompany memorial services and support groups but also to uplift and inspire. Each song is a gem that captures the heart and soul of grief as well as the true meaning of life. Gone Too Soon, the title song, was originally written for a TV broadcast to pay tribute to performers who had died. It was used for tributes to Princess Diana and has won an Emmy and was recorded by Michael Jackson.

Paul Alexander recorded this song with the musical writer Larry Grossman, who accompanied Paul with a piano on this very special arrangement. In addition to the title song, Mama A Rainbow and Dance with My Father celebrates and honors our parents. I Hope You Dance and Live Like You Were Dying shine on as words of wisdom with unique vocal performances by Paul. For Good from the musical Wicked and To Where You Are are heart-stirring performances that will bring healing to your spirit.

by Stéphane Gerson

hardcover with book jacket

A haunting chronicle of what endures when the world we know is swept away 

On a day like any other, on a rafting trip down Utah’s Green River, Stéphane Gerson’s eight-year-old son, Owen, drowned in a spot known as Disaster Falls. That night, as darkness fell, Stéphane huddled in a tent with his wife, Alison, and their older son, Julian, trying to understand what seemed inconceivable. “It’s just the three of us now,” Alison said over the sounds of a light rain and, nearby, the rushing river. “We cannot do it alone. We have to stick together.”

Disaster Falls chronicles the aftermath of that day and their shared determination to stay true to Alison’s resolution. At the heart of the book is an unflinching portrait of a marriage tested. Husband and wife grieve in radically different ways that threaten to isolate each of them in their post-Owen worlds. (“He feels so far,” Stéphane says when Alison shows him a selfie Owen had taken. “He feels so close,” she says.) With beautiful specificity, Stéphane shows how they resist that isolation and reconfigure their marriage from within.

As Stéphane navigates his grief, the memoir expands to explore how society reacts to the death of a child. He depicts the “good death” of his father, which reveals an altogether different perspective on mortality. He excavates the history of the Green River—rife with hazards not mentioned in the rafting company’s brochures. He explores how stories can both memorialize and obscure a person’s life—and how they can rescue us.

Disaster Falls is a powerful account of a life cleaved in two—raw, truthful, and unexpectedly consoling.

By Cathy Cheshire. I want to drastically improve how the world typically thinks about anybody suffering after the death of a cherished child. Instead of a trauma they will never get over, they can enrich their life with one of the greatest lessons about love after natural grieving. I had a life filled with heartbreak and then my beloved only child died. I relay with painful honesty how I spiraled into a dark relentless depression and then learned to live again in a powerful way surprising even me.

by Sherry A. Phillips with reflections by the Rev. Eugene Blake

Landscape of Loss touches both the emotions and intellect of a grieving person. Sherry Phillips writes about the sudden death of her husband, relating the feelings, struggles, and frustrations she encounters. Rev. Eugene Blake, as a pastor and grief counselor, shares the knowledge gained from study and leading a bereavement support group. This distinctive balance allows the reader to connect with Sherry's feelings and to learn more about the grieving process from Gene's reflections. More than a series of inspirational adages or a steps-to-survival manual, this unique book is a collection of impressions which reassures people they can grow through their grief. Grief should not be avoided. Facing it, expressing feelings, and learning about the nature of grief are essential to survival. The authors' observations of nature and cycles of life are played out in the subtle theme of landscape and are used as a metaphor for spiritual transformation. The chapters are short and could be used a daily devotion. Sherry even writes chapters from the perspectives of her grandchild and mother-in-law, pointing out most deaths involve family members and friends. Although we may feel alone, we don't grieve alone.

Finding a New Purpose After Unspeakable Loss -- 615 pages

Awakening from every parent's worst nightmare, the death of his oldest son in a car crash, journalist and aspiring teacher Ken Brack sets out to find how people rebuild their lives after catastrophic loss. Meeting parents and siblings, students and entrepreneurs from across the country, Brack gathers the wrenching and ultimately uplifting stories of people who grow through extraordinary trials by finding a new purpose. Many of them confront the very forces that tore open their lives, which can exact a heavy cost. Especially For You offers fresh light on our responses to horrific ordeals, driven by an arresting emotional intimacy in the author's narrative voice.

Among the select families Brack follows are two parents whose response to tragedy breaks the silence about sexual assaults on college campuses as they confront a national disgrace. Other complete accounts are gathered for the first time, including those of the brother and friends of a volunteer firefighter who are inspired by his unselfishness to create a day of service and remembrance honoring 9/11 victims. Three brothers from Poland confront their Holocaust memories decades later to reassert their humanity, finding a mashed-up space to reconcile the past. Moving through such trials, many of these people reclaim gifts their loved ones left while discovering a sacred duty. Together they offer hope to others searching for answers.

A hybrid of narrative, reportorial, and creative nonfiction, the book speaks passionately to readers facing loss and to a broader audience moved by stories of compassion, resilience, and our capacity to heal. Six years after losing their son, the author and his wife reach out to other bereaved families, opening a nonprofit with support groups, counseling, and wellness programs that has become a leading resource in southern New England. The couple endures other occasional fractures as he grapples with the cause of their son's death while she manages their nonprofit, Hope Floats Healing and Wellness Center, in Kingston, Ma. A decade later, Denise Brack decides to make quilts for their two other children from their son Michael's clothes, a creative, restorative step that emerges as a unifying metaphor.

The purpose of "Death 101: A Workbook for Educating and Healing" is to provide an understanding of dying, death, and bereavement that will assist individuals to cope better with and understand their own death and the death of others.

The workbook is meant as a supplement to textbooks on dying and death, to accompany the academic material necessary to increase our knowledge about death education. At the same time, it is intended to be an independent method of working through loss, a personal guide for the journey through grief.

By Bernice Catherine Harper

"This work, so substantial, explicit and totally applicable, will be a significant contribution to those who care for the dying and their survivors for many years to come" was the reaction of John A. Hackle, President of the Hillhaven Foundation, when this volume first appeared. His prediction was validated when the editor received the Better Life Award of the American Health Care Association and most importantly, by reaction of health care professionals and caregivers, when the edition became a fast seller. The new edition retains the theme of addressing the complex subject of the coping demands on health professionals and caregivers involved in the care of dying patients and their families. The original paradigm of the coping stages during the first 24 months, which every health professional and caregiver must confront, remains as relevant today as when first proposed. The author, in this edition, has revised the volume to address an additional topic which she has been addressing for several years now in her presentations, Stage VI of the process. When the original volume was reviewed in Social Work in Health Care the reaction was "...this volume is not only valuable for the practitioner, but all those involved in the education process, because it pertains directly to preparing professionals to work in this area. This, the author has transformed the process of working with death into a life model." The new edition retains its original value, as well as provides a resource as health care professionals move into the 21st century.

Aimee died at the age of fourteen after an eight-year bout with leukemia. Her younger sister and only sibling, Molly, was just ten at the time. Sixteen years later during an autumn visit to her childhood home in Indiana, she proposed to her parents that together they attempt much deeper and riskier therapeutic work on her sister’s death. And possibly film much of it. The result was a years’ long heart pilgrimage for the Gandour family and a return of Aimee to their fold. Written from the perspective of the mother of both the deceased and surviving sibling, the memoir Heart Work takes us by the hand and leads us through her family’s and her own journey. It offers a rare and intimate developmental perspective on a family living with life-threatening illness and death. Much of it is based on actual data including diaries that the author kept on each of her daughters from birth; taped conversations between family members and Aimee’s hematologist; journaling and notes from therapy and interviews; and writings from each of the siblings as children. Even though the author writes from a bereaved mother’s point of view, she enlightens us psychologically along the way and leaves us with deep questions to ponder. Heart Work is the story of one family in the Midwest but it touches on multiple themes that will resonate with parents and surviving siblings, as well as those who have cared for and supported them.
