Grief Books (& Others)

Spanish

By Pat Schweibert and Chuck DeKlyen

Also available in English

Some cooking requires that you measure ingredients exactly. But making soup is different. Soup making is an art, and you are the artist. Improvising as you go, your only goal is that the blended creation will both satisfy your hunger and soothe what hurts you.

“What’s true about soup making, is also true about grieving.”

In our richly illustrated new book, Grandy has just suffered a big loss in her life, and so she is cooking up her own unique batch of “tear soup.” Tear Soup gives you a glimpse into Grandy’s life as she blends different ingredients into her own grief process. Her tear soup will help to bring her comfort and ultimately help to fill the void in her life that was created by her loss.

Following Grandy’s story you will find cooking tips to use in dealing with grief:

If you are the cook; if your friend is the cook; soup making and time; if a child is the cook; if you are a male chef; if there are two of you cooking.

Spanish Edition.  Also available in English.

Helping kids who have experienced, or witnessed a violent or traumatic episode, including physical abuse, school or gang violence, accidents, homicide, suicide, and natural disasters such as floods or fire, can be a challenging prospect for counselors, parents and concerned adults.

This comprehensive work/activity book written by a school counselor is designed to help guide each child through the process of healing. The child’s responses to the activities can help the counselor assess the depth of the problem and the progress the child is making in dealing with the issues involved. Through the use of the activities, the child will have the opportunity to express the turmoil they have been feeling as well as the resultant effects on their life. This allows for the facilitator to easily introduce positive coping strategies as well as ways for the child to implement these strategies and start to overcome the trauma they have experienced.

By Joy and Marv Johnson -- A Centering Corporation Resource

Para padres que están sufriendo la muerte de un hijo Sobrevivir la muerte de un hijo no se realiza de acuerdo a un patrón fijo de emociones.  Los diversos sentimientos y experiencias se asemejan al clima.  Justo cuando crees que la tormenta ha pasado, ésta regresa para afectarte nuevamente.  Algunos padres han descrito la pena como olas.  Cuando menos las esperas, se estrellan contra ti y te revuelcan.  La pena es algo que se convierte en parte de tu vida.  Nunca “la dejas atrás” o “la superas”.  Es parte de ti, tal como tu hijo, siempre será parte de ti y nunca lo olvidarás.

Living after the death of a child is not done according to a fixed pattern of emotions.  The various feelings and experiences are more like changes in weather.  About the time you believe the storm has passed, you find it returning to stir you again.  Some parents have described their grief as coming in waves.  Just when you least expect it, you are struck by the wave and carried along with it.  Grief is something you integrate into your life.  You don’t “get through it” or “get over it.”  You make it a part of you, just as your child will always be a part of you and never forgotten.

From The Inside of the Book, A Letter To Grieving Children:

“To the Grieving Child,

This is a very special book — the words and pictures were created for you by kids your own age.  The book was made especially for you to help you remember someone very important in your life who has died.  That person may be a parent, a grandparent, a brother or sister or maybe even a friend.  Death brings many confusing feelings that are hard to talk about.  The exercises in this book provide different ways for you to remember times shared with the special person who died.  You  may choose to do all of the exercises or only some of them.  Treat this book as your personal diary which you have created just for yourself, and share it with others only if you want.  Working through this memory book will be like going on a trip with the friend or family member who died.  As you remember the special times, you will begin to understand your feelings better and will be able to share them with the important people in your life.”

They can write about the funeral, the favorite things of their person and a good-bye letter.
