There is no more stressful and traumatic experience than the death of a loved one. It can take many months or even years to adjust to life without that special person. But with the right guidance, readers can learn to lessen the pain and get on with their lives.
Solace provides soothing comfort and hope for those who are suffering. Bereavement expert Roberta Temes believes all of us experience and process grief in our own way. Here she eases readers through the stages of grief, helps them understand their emotions, and enables them to recognize when they may need to seek help. Temes also helps them consider the pros and cons of bereavement groups and counselors, and shows them how to use visualization to ease the healing process. The book is filled with comforting affirmations, quotations, and words of encouragement, as well as anecdotes drawn from the author’s bereavement practice so readers may learn from others who have struggled with loss. Dealing with loss is never easy, but this book provides a calming companion to help readers through their mourning and enable them to begin enjoying life again.
