The Grief Recovery Handbook Empowers Grievers to Complete Emotional Aspects of Grief

June 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 290

The first ground breaking book by John W. James and Russell Friedman, co-founders of The Grief Recovery Institute in Los Angeles county, empowers grievers to complete the emotional aspects of grief. I was myself widowed at a young age. Talk therapy alone addresses grief from a cerebral perspective. The Grief Recovery Method presented in The Grief Recovery Handbook has helped countless grievers to heal their hearts and live their lives going forward.

When my dad died in April 2008, the 7th major death in 6 years including the death of my husband, I was simply devastated and my whole life went into upheaval.

A friend thoughtfully mailed me a copy of this book.

I had done so much work already on my losses, but they were really about discovery and did nothing to actually complete the emotional part which is Grief.

Thankfully he gave me this book.

Then I met Russell Friedman in Boise in January 2009 and realized there was a Grief Recovery Workshop not too far from where I lived. And I was facing 2 additional significant loss events. I felt I simply had to go.

The Grief Recovery Workshop which included our reading and completely the simple and easy action steps for "Grief Completion." This book is so excellent on its own. And then to leverage it within a group. Served to expand it and make it even stronger.

Reading this book and doing the (small) action step plan of the "Grief Recovery Method" was like an emotional bran muffin for me.

So many people comment on things like clutter as stuck energy. And yes clutter is stuck energy. However just jettisoning the stuff alone does nothing to address and complete the emotions which are stuck.

The Grief Recovery Handbook is that book.

It is the emotional bran muffin which gives us the actual and only tools to complete the emotions so you can get un-stuck.

We have all had major loss events:

  • Death of People
  • Divorce (our own, our parents)
  • Moves
  • Death of Pets
  • Romantic Relationship Breakups
  • Losing Job
  • Financial Setbacks

Here is the book which provides the tools to surface and complete the emotional side of the picture: Grief

So yes, buy seven copies, one for yourself and 6 for others whom you know to give as gifts.

Since reading it, I have given it to 3 other people in just the last month to help their grief completion. Because I care about them.

And isn't that what you feel for your friends? Give them a copy, too.
