Format: Paperback
A licensed social worker and a professional bereavement counselor pool their years of experience in A Good Friend for Bad Times: Helping Others Through Grief, a Christian resource for helping friends and loves ones cope with terrible loss. Offering both general and specific advice, especially for dealing with the cruel reality of death, A Good Friend for Bad Times emphasizes the importance of being there, and describes helpful means of emotional and physical suppport in the first weeks, the first month, and the first year after experiencing a death. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
The book's authors have obviously spent significant time counseling others through periods of grief and the book shows it. Sometimes these types of books are written by scholastic types and not someone who knows what it's like to deal with issues first hand. Easy to read and to understand, this should be the first book you pick up when you want to help someone through tough times.

Everyone knows someone who is grieving at one time or another. This book is a practical guide on understanding and helping your friends and loved ones through these difficult times. I wish a few of my co-workers had read it when I was suffering from the loss of a child. This should be required reading for employers and supervisors.

This is fine resource & most people will find helpful hints & ideas to help their friends deal with the loss of a love one. Written in such a way which it can benefit those who lose a loved one or those who want to aid someone who has lost someone, it is easy to read & organized so it can be read from cover to cover or just pick up a chapter for a quick read.

This book is needed across all peoples and ages. What I need now is a book on how to best console a person that is in grief but not from a death. It seems people just do not understand that saying " Get over it" or It could be worse" is not any help to someone hurting.
