Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

“Compassionate, poignant, and practical. . . . Transcending Loss will be a great blessing on your lifetime journey of recovery.”—Harold Bloomfield, MD, psychiatrist and author of How to Survive the Loss of Love and How to Heal Depression

Death doesn’t end a relationship, it simply forges a new type of relationship—one based not on physical presence but on memory, spirit, and love.
There are many wonderful books available that address acute grief and how to cope with it. But they often focus on crisis management and imply that there is an "end" to mourning, and fail to acknowledge grief’s ongoing impact and how it changes through the years.

“This is a book about death and grief, yes, but more important, it is a book about love and hope. I have learned from my experience and interviews with courageous people about pain, struggle, resiliency, and meaning. Their stories show over time, you can learn to transcend even in spite of the pain.”—from the introduction by Ashley Davis Bush, LCSW

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Goes where few books have gone before. 29 juillet 2013
Par K. Huggs - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Having read over twenty books on grief in writing an annotated bibliography for the hospice where I volunteer, I think this is one of the best.

Most writers stress that grief is not a linear process, with stages that one goes through bing, bing, bing. Anyone who has experienced it knows that it's cyclical, comes in waves, often unexpected. One writer called it a "spiral staircase". However, there is some sort of progression that one follows, just naturally if nothing else. These writers often use a "re" word to describe the end phase, like "resolution," "reintegration," or "recovery".

I like the idea of a "trans" word like "transform" or "transcend" because they suggest the idea, not only of continued life, but continued growth, of using this horrific experience to make yourself even better. Sameet Kumar's excellent "Grieving Mindfully" takes a Buddhist philosophy toward explicitly describing how to make yourself an even better person as you go beyond the grief. It is not the easiest book to read, however.

This book is much easier to follow and, I think, has an implicitly Buddhist slant, though she never mentions it specifically.
She describes five phases that one goes through from Shock and Disorganization to Transcendence.

The most valuable part of the book to me is the discussion of what she calls the "SOAR" model toward Transcendence. She describes four paths that one can follow and recommends trying one or all of them. The paths are Spirituality, Outreach, Attitude, and Reinvestment. Each of these is discussed in detail with examples of individuals who have taken these paths.

In the last part is an excellent discussion of Roadblocks and Detours and how to negotiate them.

While it's not the first book that one ought to read in working through grief, at some point I think most people would really benefit from her intelligent and practical advice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Literate, sensitive accessible, and based on long professional experience 9 janvier 2017
Par Alex Chimes - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
There are a great many books on grief work, particularly for grief caused by spousal death, and it seems as if the reviews of every one of them say it is a wonderful book and was an invaluable aid to the reviewer during an extremely trying time. That has certainly been true of this book for me. It is literate, sensitive, and accessible, and is based on long professional experience and thought. I also suggest, however, that it is important to try to look at a range of books, because there are significantly different approaches to grief work, and as everyone says, the experience of everyone in grief is unique. Therefore any particular book may be better from some people than for others, and it essential to find the best resources, for you, for dealing with a major--and not generally understood--life crisis. A guide to the various approaches is "Grief Counselling and Grief Therapy: A Handbook for the Mental Health Practitioner," Fourth Edition, by J. William Worden.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Deeply Compassionate, Warm and Intelligent 14 janvier 2016
Par Susan M. Baumann - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Davis-Bush has written a wise and compassionate, infinitely helpful book about grappling with grief. Few books on grief dare to tackle the idea that grief is life-long, as this one does. Davis-Bush is not suggesting that one should expect grief to be a protracted experience, but rather that, realistically, grief is indeed often a profound and life-altering journey that is absorbed and incorporated into the griever's life experience for a lifetime. Loss is a deeply painful, personal experience, and I appreciate that Davis-Bush doesn't minimize, trivialize or dismiss it. There is genuine comfort to be found from this book. It explores the many complex facets of grief, and how to cope, and even grow, from the experience. There are numerous examples of people in different grief situations, and what each struggled with and then often transcended. These examples are very affirming because the reader can recognize a similar issue that they too may have. I highly recommend this book for anyone grieving, lost or in despair. It is an intelligent book filled with warmth, empathy and assurance. When in the earliest stages of grief, if like me, you look to books for insight and solace, it may be the only book that doesn't leave your side. It is one to carry around, highlight and refer to often. The words within it may be just what you are looking for.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 She frequently re-reads this book to help her through tough times which is great. 8 mars 2016

I bought this book twice for others who are struggling with sudden loss. One was for my mom who lost both of my grandparents within a year and the other was for my cousin who unexpectedly lost his wife last year. I first bought it for my mom when I saw it on a powerful show on OWN called "In Deep Shift " with Jonas Elrod. This book was suggested to the woman on the show who had lost her entire family in a sudden plane crash and they discussed the subject matter of the book which immediately inspired me to buy it for my mom to attempt to help her cope. She frequently re-reads this book to help her through tough times which is great.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Much needed for those dealing with sorrow and grief... 22 octobre 2013
Par TylernGavins Mom - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have not yet completed the book but have gotten through the first half. So far it has helped me tremendously. I lost my beloved grandmother to cancer a little over a month ago. I've had this feeling that my life will just never be the same again, and this book confirms my feelings. She reiterates that although our loved ones are gone, we still have a relationship with them, it's just a different relationship. It explains in detail every step of the grieving process. This book is a must read for those trying to cope with loss of a loved one.
