Being bereaved can leave you with a whole range of emotions. You may feel paralysed; you may feel angry; you will almost certainly feel sad.
This book is a practical guide to looking after yourself while you are mourning the loss of someone, with sections on funerals, continuing to function, staying healthy, dealing with emotions and remembering the person who has died. It includes advice for relatives and friends supporting others who have been bereaved.
‘This book is packed with supportive information underpinned by research. It contains a wealth of useful tips and advice, while avoiding being prescriptive or patronising….An excellent text full of simple and compassionate help. I would recommend it to many of my clients and also to therapists, nurses and volunteers working with bereaved people.’ NURSING STANDARD
