THE COURAGE TO GRIEVE by Judy Tatelbaum, MSW
CREATIVE LIVING RECOVERY AND GROWTH THROUGH GRIEF

    "The death of a loved one is the most profound of all sorrows. The grief that comes with such a loss is intense and multifaceted, affecting our emotions, our bodies, and our lives. Grief is preoccupying and depleting. Emotionally, grief is a mixture of raw feelings such as sorrow, anguish, anger, regret, longing, fear, and deprivation. Grief may be experienced physically as exhaustion, emptiness, tension, sleeplessness, or loss of appetite. Grief invades our daily lives in many sudden gaps and changes, like that empty place at the dinner table, or the sudden loss of affection and companionship, as well as in many new apprehensions, adjustments, and uncertainties. The loss of a loved on throws every aspect of our lives out of balance."

    ".....As we journey through these painful experiences of living, we must never forget that we have an amazing resilience and capacity to survive. Just as whole forests burn to the ground and eventually grow anew, just as spring follows winter, so it is nature's way that through it all, whatever we suffer, we can keep on growing. It takes courage to believe we can survive, that we will grow. It takes courage, too, to live now and not postpone living until some vague tomorrow. If this courage to face life and death can come from reading a book, that is what I wish for each of us."


A classic in the field of grief, this book has helped thousands of people through the grieving process, providing specific help to face pain and grief and to recover and grow from the experience. This exceptional book clarifies that grief is a natural, inevitable human experience, comprised of many uncomfortable, intense, and unexpected emotions -- even the temporary loss of the will to live. Judy Tatelbaum offers excellent advice on how to help oneself and others face death and loss. The tone is spiritual, and optimistic. THE COURAGE TO GRIEVE is about more than death and grieving -- it is about life, joy, growth, and courage.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO SUFFER by Judy Tatelbaum, MSW
A HANDBOOK FOR TRANSFORMING LIFE'S CRISES

    "Only in fairy tales does the hero slay the dragon once and for all, and live happily ever after. In real life the dragons keep coming. Considering the dragons we will probably have to slay in a lifetime .... we need tools for handling our inevitable encounters with life."

    "Being fully alive to life is truly a heroic act .... Many of us think heroism means rescuing people from burning buildings or being daring in wartime. Instead, heroism is an every day affair. For some of us getting up in the morning and facing another day is a heroic act. For others changing jobs or staying in a relationship or managing on limited funds or facing the loss of a loved one is a heroic act. We have many opportunities to be heroes in our daily lives. The heroism of which I speak is the courage to be fully alive to life regardless of our circumstances."

This insightful, inspiring book emphasizes that while hurt is inevitable in life, suffering is not. We can choose how much we suffer in the difficult circumstances and tragedies we cannot necessarily control -- such as loss, separation, problems with parents, and our bodies and health. Writing in a warm, caring style and drawing on examples from her clients, Tatelbaum shows how it is possible to face pain head-on, express our feelings, and then move on. She suggests that "we can use powerful circumstances as stepping stones to our growth." Practical and inspirational, this book is always guiding us toward enjoying more fulfilling lives.

A FABLE ABOUT AFTERLIFE

The author of THE COURAGE TO GRIEVE has written a story somewhat reminiscent of THE LITTLE PRINCE.  This fable takes the reader from a place called THE LAND OF FOREVER FLOWERS into our world, THE LAND OF AMAZING ADVENTURES.

Judy wrote this book with the intention of offering a useful perspective and solace in facing life’s complexities, losses, and death.

“Nothing helped me more to deal with the sudden death of my partner than reading about life after death.  This book gave me hope, peace, and comfort.”  Claire Parrish, D.C.
