The time immediately following the death of a loved one and extending over a period of weeks or even months is the most difficult to cope with in one’s lifetime. The special accomplishment of Dr. Doka in this booklet is developing a condensed "Therapeutic Guide", identifying the problem area of grief recovery and offering a positive outlook for the future.
Focused on this positive outlook, "Life Beyond Loss" includes many true-to-life experiences shared by those who have successfully dealt with loss. Some topics covered:
- What is Grief?
- Facing The Emotion Of Grief
- Life Without The Person
