From the Back Cover
In Finding Your Way After Your Parent Dies, Rev. Richard Gilbert has created a compassionate guide for those struggling with the loss of a parent. Bringing many years of experience in bereavement counseling, Gilbert sketches out some of the issues that arise in the wake of a parent's death and offers practical suggestions for navigating these difficulties. From the disorientation that can come immediately after death to relating to the surviving parent to healing old emotional wounds, the topics dealt with here will be of tremendous help to many.
Combining a warm, empathetic approach with an expertise in grief, Gilbert's Finding Your Way After Your Parent Dies is a resource that will be deeply appreciated by those who have lost a parent and by those ministering to them.

Top Customer Reviews
Although he writes primarily for those who are recently bereaved, the author has a fine chapter for those who lost a parent many years ago, in childhood, and who are now dealing with that loss as an adult. Other chapters deal with relating to your surviving parent, how to deal with loneliness, marking appropriate boundaries, practicing healthy living, seeking counseling and the gift of time. Each chapter concludes with a summary page that offers a brief, inspirational thought, an opportunity for doing something related to that issue, and lovely prayers.
Among the very helpful aspects of the book one of the best is the long list of resources in the back, separated by the chapter topics. It would certainly be a starting point for those who either want to explore an aspect of the book further, or who were not helped by that particular section of the book and need "something more." There are resources listed that are written specifically for men or for women, both of whom have specific and not necessarily similar concerns when a parent dies.Read more ›
