Summary

Updated to commemorate its 20th anniversary, this classic resource further explores the effects of grief and sheds new light on how to begin to take effective actions to complete the grieving process and work towards recovery and happiness. 
Incomplete recovery from grief can have a lifelong negative effect on the capacity for happiness. Drawing from their own histories as well as from others', the authors illustrate how it is possible to recover from grief and regain energy and spontaneity.  
Based on a proven program, The Grief Recovery Handbook offers grievers the specific actions needed to move beyond loss. New material in this edition includes guidance for dealing with: 
·  Loss of faith 
·  Loss of career and financial issues 
·  Loss of health 
·  Growing up in an alcoholic or dysfunctional home 
The Grief Recovery Handbook is a groundbreaking, classic handbook that everyone should have in their library.  
“This book is required for all my classes. The more I use this book, the more I believe that unresolved grief is the major underlying issue in most people’s lives. It is the only work of its kind that I know of that outlines the problem and provides the solution.”—Bernard McGrane, Ph.D., Professor of Sociology, Chapman University

    David Fitzpatrick’s Sharp is an extraordinary memoir—a fascinating, disturbing look into the mind of a man who, in his early 20s, began cutting himself due to a severe mental illness. A beautifully written treatment of a powerful subject, Fitzpatrick—whose symptoms included extreme depression and self-mutilation—writes movingly and honestly about his affliction and inspires readers with his courage, joining the literary ranks of Terri Cheney (Manic), Augusten Burroughs (Running with Scissors), Marya Hornbacher (Wasted), and Susanna Kaysen (Girl, Interrupted). 
    “A harrowing journey from self-destructive psychosis to a cautious re-emergence into the flickering sunshine of the sane world….Fitzpatrick writes about mental illness with the unsparing intensity of Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton but also with the hard-won self-knowledge of William Styron, Kay Jamison, and other chroniclers of disease, recovery, and management…. A must read, remarkably told.”—Wally Lamb, author of I Know This Much is True

    "You have to get used to this!" I heard a voice say. I trembled as I experienced a presence at the right side of my dinner table. I managed to stay put, playing the guest-just-having-a-dinner role. I more or less rushed to my room when dinner was over. "What is this?" I thought. "You have to get used to this!" I heard again. Then I got a peaceful, personal explanation of how this cooperation will be done; me in a physical body on Earth and he being on the other side bringing higher frequencies and wider perspectives. It was now the third time the voice said: "You have to get used to this!" This time my answer came from all of me, clearly and determined. "Yes!!!" My intention was clear, and I knew that I would be cared for if my fear would come back. In this personal way Barbro is sharing her inner journey with us. Time has come, she says, when we need to be more open about these kinds of experiences. In my practice, she continues, I have met many, who like me before, keep hiding away what is the greatest gift in their life. They do not want to be ridiculed as is often the case even in our open society. Barbro claims that today, we cannot afford being ruled by this. We are facing a time in history, when we as human beings are on our way to destroy our beautiful home, our planet. It is urgent that as many as possible of us focus in our hearts and passion taking us beyond our survival strategies based on fear. Daring to receive unconditional love from beyond will be our greatest gift in opening our hearts. Although she is following her own intimate path, Barbro has been applying her gift in everyday life as a psychologist, organisational consultant and a Gestalt therapist since the 1970s. She believes in the power of the group and has great faith in what people are able to accomplish when and if they build their co-operation on trust and true intention. Among other things - this is what she teaches in her professional life.
