Thus, while many competing books generalize about the process of overcoming grief, there's truly no 'one size fits all' in the matter, and Dr. Semenova's coverage both acknowledges this truth and offers up a range of insights, based on case history examples, that chart different paths to recovery.
Chapters define dissimilar types of grief (anticipatory, disenfranchised, or complicated), explain the challenges facing therapists and patients as they work with each, and contrast myths and realities surrounding the process of experiencing, working through and overcoming grief.
Readers who wonder how to help a grieving relative or friend, those who feel 'stuck' in grief without an explanation as to why, and therapists who work with patients over grief and recovery will all find much useful information in Faces of Grief, which outlines not a singular path, but a variety of responses and options based upon a client's unique background and experiences.
Faces of Grief is a highly recommended discussion for anyone seeking answers to common questions about the process of grieving and recovery.
