More Than Surviving: Caring for Yourself While You Grieve
From the Introduction: People all over the world face losses, some more challenging and life-changing than others. Grief from loss may occur as a result of death, as well as numerous other non-death related losses. When I refer to loss, it is the kind in which the person grieving has not chosen to give someone or something up. When a loss occurs in which the person is not the initiator, the helpless feelings can seem frightening, unfamiliar and over-powering. Two basic fears can surface, the unknown and loss of control.
