"Glimpses into Grief" illustrates the many facets of grief and how it is experienced under different circumstances. Don Harold Lawrence deals with many types of grief including the loss of parent, loss of grandparent, loss of a pet, loss of ability and loss of a job. These events and many others are addressed eloquently by the author who draws from his 20-plus years of experience as a grief counselor. Not only does he share what is "normal" in grieving, he also delves into "pathological grieving," or what to do when a person is "stuck." He offers tips, vignettes, and resources for further exploration and support. The book is written as if you're sitting with the author in a calm matter-of-fact manner. This book is a mixture of reality therapy and unconditional positive regard for the person who is grieving and the grieving process. "Glimpses Into Grief" is a necessary tool for grief counselors, clergy and mental health professionals, as well as anyone who has experienced grief.
