Praise For The Grief Recovery Handbook

“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
