Going through loss and grief is a painful process. Dr. Deborah Derman brings both her unique clinical and personal experience to bear to help others channel their feelings and energy along the way. Her coloring book can help those who suffer loss in any form from death, loss of relationship, even loss of grounding and a sense of self. Her book is a supportive and positive resource for growth and resiliency.

Debby Derman is a remarkable psychotherapist who knows more professionally and personally about loss than anyone I have come across in 30 years of practice. The nature of these 35 words and the coloring they generate creates a gentle and comprehensive approach to grief and loss. Although we carry sorrows for a lifetime, if there's any way to hold love after grief, this book clearly shows you how.
