9780895031419: Mending the Torn Fabric: For Those Who Grieve and Those Who Want to Help Them (Death, Value and Meaning Series)

The analogy of the torn fabric was first used by the author in response to a bereaved mother's cry: "I know what grief feels like; I don't know what it looks like." In "Mending the Torn Fabric: For Those Who Grieve and Those Who Want to Help Them", the author expands the metaphor to include earlier and future or potential losses as well as losses associated with the death that may be unrecognized or minimized. This book includes chapters that examine complications that may be present or may arise, suggestions for mending even the most torn fabric, and a chapter dedicated to friends who want to help. Stories bereaved persons have shared with the author through the years are interspersed throughout the book to provide examples of loss and mending.

Review:

"Dr. Brabant has developed a delightful way to address bereavement issues by focusing on the torn fabrics of our life. She helps us find appropriate and useful needles and threads to mend our grievous wounds. Through the use of short vignettes and understandable language, Dr. Brabant weaves her considerable experience in working with grieving people into the fabric of this book helping us to stamp out guilt and shame along the way. " -- Robert L. Wrenn, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology, University of Arizona

"In Mending the Torn Fabric, Dr. Brabant demonstrates an understanding of the grief process with all its complexities. Nothing is missed. The content is comprehensive and would be helpful to anyone coping with loss or assisting someone in grief." -- Paul Alexander, CSW, CHT

"In this creative and insightful book, Dr. Sarah Brabant has chosen the power of analogy to help make mourning an understandable and healing process. Using fabric as the basis, and mending as the process of self-understanding, the author weaves together the tasks of mourning with cultural factors, personal history, past losses, and current life situations." -- Elizabeth J. Clark, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Medicine, Albany Medical College, President, National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship

"Professionally competent in its theoretical framework yet simple enough for the lay person, Dr. Brabant has written a compassionate accounting of one of the most basic issues in life, the grieving process. The book is a testimony to a life time rich in teaching, caring, learning and practicing her craft." -- Julia Mayo, Ph.D., Chief Clinical Studies Clinical Professor of Psychiatry, Saint Vincents Hospital and Medical Center
