Revue de presse

“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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Newly updated and expanded to commemorate its twentieth anniversary—this classic resource helps people complete the grieving process and move toward 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

    3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not a one-size-fits-all program 31 décembre 2009
    Par Alex Hanisch - Publié sur Amazon.com

    The introductory chapters to the book contain an interesting overview of grief in general and offer many valuable insights to those suffering from any kind of loss. However, the actual recovery program, presented as a series of exercises, is founded on two bases which may not be suitable for everyone.

    1) You're pretty much expected to work with a partner. The authors take pains to say you don't HAVE to work with a partner, but then each new exercise begins with an invitation to "reconsider" your choice to work without a partner and to "examine your reasons" for choosing to work alone. For people who have turned to books because they lack any other kind of support network, this constant prodding can be uncomfortable and may even serve to add to their feelings of loneliness.

    2) The program is designed to help you move past your regrets and/or bring closure to any "unfinished business" that remains since the loss occurred. The primary tools are timelines/charts and communication (written and - if you're working with a partner - verbal). Because unresolved issues do tend to trap many people in their grief, this program would no doubt be of great use to many people. However, there are other sides to grief, issues which may not necessarily have their roots in "unfinished business", and there doesn't seem to be much acknowledgement of those other issues in this book.

    Basically, if you're trapped in a cycle of "if only" and it's preventing you from dealing with your grief, this book will probably help you. But if you're at peace with the past and are simply struggling to cope with the future in the face of your loss, this may not be the book for you.

    Par the_wordgirl - Publié sur Amazon.com
    I read this book a few years ago, while I was in the midst of an unraveling relationship. I was coping with that loss and a very difficult year and dealing with 20 years of unresolved grief from my father's death when I was six. At the time, I had taken baby steps toward healing by finally opening up to my friends and loved ones, but I was having a great deal of difficulty moving on. I decided to take a course on Death and Dying as part of my degree program, and this book was required reading. Not only did I have to read it, I had to do all the exercises and share them with people in the course.

    I hated every single minute of it--mostly because, I think, I wasn't altogether ready to rip off the scabs from years of suffering. I was also never an open person, so it felt trite and intrusive. Despite that feeling, I gave it my all. I rolled my eyes a lot and complained a lot. I didn't think it helped at all. Shortly thereafter, my Mama got terminally ill. I had to basically give up my life to take care of her. I found myself face-to-face with so much grief in such a short amount of time that I didn't know how to even breathe. But I realized that I was able to face the grief this time because of the work I'd done with this book. After my Mama passed away, I used the techniques in the book to deal with these new pains. And I've since tried to do these things for every unresolved event/painful relationship in my life.

    This book is not miraculous, but it does give you a method of doing the work you need to do. For me, no matter what grief it is, the key is to acknowledge it exists. That's what this book does. It provides a gate to fully acknowledging the pain in your life--sometimes, the pain is connected to other pain and you're unaware of it. It's a first step, and it will not "fix" you. Only you can do that, and you can take these tools and make them work for you. For the critics who say it focuses on divorce and death too much--I disagree. The technique is really what's valuable here--not the circumstance. I found it helpful to just skip to the techniques instead of reading the commentary. The technique can be built upon and interpreted differently, but it will help shed light on different things. It's true that nothing is one size fits all. You have to be willing to work--and willing to fall down multiple times. I recommend this technique as one part of a strategy of coping. Another part would be building support networks for yourself, seeking alternate ways of expressing yourself, and (of course) therapy.

    It's been seven years since my Mama died, and I am still dealing with the losses in my life on a daily basis. But they no longer eat away at me, and I can face them with a certainty that I will survive them. You will never be the same, but you can face your life and learn to carry your burdens with grace.

    5.0 étoiles sur 5 Releasing pain and moving forward without letting go of our loved ones 28 septembre 2009
    Par Jessie Menendez - Publié sur Amazon.com
    Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
    One very simple truth is brought forth in this powerful little book. Bluntly, the majority of our society does not know how or even want to deal with the negative ("bad") feelings which are the natural response to loss.

    We've been trained that "boys don't cry", "have a cookie and you'll feel better", "forget the past", in other words stuff the feelings that make other people uncomfortable. Or as a good friend of mine use to do, compartmentalize: put everything in boxes in your mind and put them on a shelf in the back so you don't have to deal with them and they don't have to bother anyone else.

    Unfortunately, emotional pain can be like an infection in your body. It may be scabbed over, but it's going to keep festering until you do what is necessary to heal it. Some people respond to the built up, festering pain by actually becoming physically ill. Some people grab an uzi and head to the mall. Then some people become angry, bitter people who turn to alcohol and/or drugs to numb the lifetime of unresolved pain. Either way the outcome isn't good for that person or the people around him/her.

    This book helps the reader to understand these concepts clearly and simply. Then it gives you tools to finally heal. If you have lost a loved one to death, rest assured that the goal is NOT for you to bury them again, by trying to make you let go of your relationship with that person. It IS about expressing the pain caused by the loss and letting go of only that pain so that you can remember your loved one with a smile instead of a knife in the heart.

    After my husband passed away, I worked with a grief recovery coach who trained at the Grief Recovery Institute with the authors of this book and founders of the institute. I highly recommend working with a grief coach when going through this book. If you cannot afford one, then find someone that you can trust to objectively and compassionately hear you through this process, maybe from a support group, or your church. Aside from the benefits of my coach's training and personal experience, I found working with someone kept me from procrastinating and helped me to push through the pain.

    Just remember, the only way out of the pain is through it.

    2.0 étoiles sur 5 Pretty Basic 17 juin 2013
    Par Andrew Winn - Publié sur Amazon.com

    My review probably will only apply to a select few people, namely, those who have had training in psychology and human behavior and those who are particularly aware of the intricacies of how they know and deal with the world and their feelings.

    This book is very basic, spending a lot of time discussing what grief is. After that, the majority of the book revolves around becoming aware of your losses, including the positives and negatives of the loss and the same for the relationship with the person who was lost. The authors take you through the creation of a grief graph, telling you that if you don't do it their way, you'll probably do it wrong. I'm a bit defiant, so I did it my own way. I can't see how I could screw it up, creating a chronological list of my losses.

    Following that is a relationship graph where you make a timeline for the relationship with the person you lost and label major positive and negative moments with the person. Again, they tell you to do it their way.

    There is another step or two, but it all sets the reader up to a fairly over-simplified final task.

    The whole practice to me seemed really basic. I was expecting multiple exercises to release grief, but it all comes down to writing a release letter, the title of which the authors apparently have copywritten. There isn't a lot of information on other ways to close the relationship, and believe me, there certainly are. I myself have grieved events in the past with release ceremonies, meditation, hard workouts, even driving in the mountains on a rainy day with the windows down. It's all about closure, finding some completion to your loss, and you don't need to write a letter to do it.

    I felt that the majority of the book was filler, including lengthy explanations of the authors' grief and relationship graphs. As such, I skipped major portions of the book. I found a few tidbits useful, but for the most part, this is all stuff that I've studied or pondered on my own.

    Another major problem I had with this book is that 90% is focused on awareness. Awareness does not create behavior change. Awareness of your grief does nothing to help you get over it. Knowing the intricacies of the lies you've been told about grieving do nothing to lead you to resolving your grief. What really needs to be done is creating a plan of action to close out each grief situation and resolve them individually. When the author only gives you one way to do it, you may feel a bit funneled into one valid resolution to your grief. This is limiting to me, and I'm not feeling too thrilled about writing a scripted letter.

    For someone that is brand new to grieving, this is a very slow, very easy introduction to grief. It'll get most people where they need to go, especially if they can find a partner willing to sit through all the group sessions they recommend scheduling.

    For someone with a working knowledge of psychology, or for those that are awake, aware and know themselves well, this will seem like a bit of a bore, too tedious, and maybe even like a waste of time.

    At the end of the day, this is a book that was written 20 years ago, in a time when people just weren't as in touch with their own feelings (in general) as they are now. The material and writing feels dated and dusty. This book and the technique need a serious re-write. A solid update of the material and presentation could make a gem out of a mediocre title.

    I have read other books on grief and this one is not as good as any of the others I've read. It puts down some of the theories of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross who has written many wonderful books on grief. Some of the statements in it are so simplistic that they sound stupid. The book puts down the "denial" aspect of grief by saying that none of the people they interviewed ever denied that their loved one had died. That's not what the "denial" step is about. It's about saying "This can't be happening to me" or "I must be having a nightmare," when faced with the loss of a loved one. I would appreciate the book more if they just said the book contains their beliefs about getting through grief and not that what they think is the gospel and what anyone else has written is wrong. I'm also reading a book, Transcending Loss, by Ashley Davis Bush who is a therapist and grief counselor and am finding it much more relevant and beneficial to getting through grief.
