Moving perspectives on coping with the death of loved ones, and the process of recovery

Encounters with Grief

A mother who lost her teenaged son, a woman widowed in her sixties, and a man whose wife died at fifty-two discuss the emotional upheaval that followed. They explore both the individuality and the commonality of grief, and offer moving perspectives on the process of recovery.

'Remarkable for its ability to present the power, process, and individuality of grief. Outstanding.' Congress on the Care of the Terminally Ill
