Format: Paperback
As a nurse, a survivor of the loss of my son by suicide and facilitator of a survivor of suicide loss support group for the last 15 years, I find this book one of the best I have found over the years. It is beautifully written and is an excellent resource, especially for helping children deal with the death of a parent by suicide. It is also an excellent resource for anyone dealing with any loss of a loved one by suicide, be it parent, child, sibling, spouse, partner, friend. The author through her own personal loss of a parent by suicide and her professional experience of many years as a Marriage and Family Therapist, has written a gem to assist people move through the grief and devastation of a suicide death. I highly recommend the book for parents, mental health professionals, support group facilitators, educators, clergy, caregivers and friends.

Format: Paperback
This book is just what the caregiver of a child, who has lost one of the most important people in their life, needs. I know this because I lost my husband to suicide when my kids were very young. There are so many questions that we must be prepared to answer, often at the least expected moment. The stories are compelling and give insight to what a child may experience at every age. Ms. Requarth's background in grief therapy, woven with her own personal struggle growing up without her birthmother, make this a truly unique guide for navigating the shoals of childhood and adolescence in the aftermath of a parent's suicide. I am particularly pleased that the author aptly addresses the feelings and needs of the surviving parent.

After A Parent's Suicide is an easy and comforting read for anyone dealing with the loss of a loved one to suicide. Requarth helps answer the question "What to say to the kids?" and offers helpful information on how to explain suicide to children. The author clearly describes the grieving process of children and adolescents and provides tips on how to help them cope.Crossing 13

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Nancy Rappaport on March 22, 2011
Format: Paperback
Margo Requarth is a deep and thorough writer who compassionately outlines the difficulties that families confront when they lose a parent to suicide. She also
compassionately shows how to preserve a parent's memory, handle returning to school and a host of practical aspects with developmental understanding.
I am an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, author of a memoir about my mother's own suicide when I was four years old and I only wish that
my family had access to this wise book when I was growing up to help with the loss of my mother. I recommend this to families highly.
Sincerely, Nancy

Excellent book....I have three grandchildren ages 12, 11 and 9...there father commited suicide and this book gave us great insight on how to handle each child. The book also is great because the stories help them to understand that so many children have gone through the same tragedy.

I purchased this book to help with my children after my husband committed suicide. I would highly recommend it to anyone that finds themselves in this situation. Very insightful and comforting to read. I cannot overstate how valuable it was to me. It has been a little over a year now and all three of us are doing very well. There is hope.
