9781442222731: Understanding Loss and Grief: A Guide Through Life Changing Events

Loss and grief are universal experiences and much has been written about both. Understanding Loss and Grief: A Guide Through Life Changing Events is a comprehensive self-help book about the various types of loss we may experience over a lifetime, and the attendant grief we feel, in all its variations, related to those losses. Nanette Burton Mongelluzzo considers the variety of ways we experience loss and grief – whether through the actual death of a loved one, including a beloved pet, or losses experienced through divorce, medical problems, natural disasters (material items) – abd examines what these experiences do to us psychologically, biologically, and emotionally. She offers understanding and the we need tools for moving through the various experiences, both big and small.

Everyone is touched by loss. It begins early in our lives and continues through its various ages and stages. Through the use of real-life vignettes, and fascinating facts on loss and grief within the American cultural landscape, the author sheds light on the ways we grieve and how we can move through it and move on. She not only explains the comprehensive array of losses that can occur in a lifetime, but also helps readers garner support for different types of loss, whether it be the loss of a breast through cancer; the loss experienced through stillbirth; or the loss of a child, spouse, or entire community. She offers support, optimism, and encouragement to readers, helping them to own personal experiences, even those that involve loss and grief.

Review:

[Understanding Loss and Grief] reviews many different expressions of loss, not just death and bereavement, and offers helpful coping strategies and self-help tools. . . .Mongeluzzo empowers her readers to approach losses—large and small—with gentleness, acceptance, and even optimism. She also touches on losses that reach beyond the individual and family to include community and world -wide issues. Although not every aspect of the book will be relevant to everyones experience, every reader is sure to walk away with a deeper understanding of the subject and with insights to apply to his or her life. . . .Understanding Loss and Grief is a thoughtful and reassuring review of a subject that is too often misunderstood and mystifying and, in some cases, even taboo. (The Village View)

Comprehensive and compassionate, Nanette Mongelluzzo presents a brilliantly researched, scientific resource effectively integrating the essential realities of universal loss and suffering. She's woven fascinating biological and historical data, along with engaging narrative into an instructive treatment of the roll of loss and its impact to the human condition over the course of a life time––a wealth of information, tools, and then some. (Nancy Sherr, Founder & CEO of A Zestful Life®, www.nancysherr.com)

We are thrilled to welcome this incredibly comprehensive book by Nanette Burton Mongelluzzo into the arena of helping people recognize the wide scope of life events that create feelings of grief, and that grief is the normal and natural reaction to those events. (Russell Friedman and John W. James, co-authors of The Grief Recovery Handbook, When Children Grieve, Moving On, and Moving Beyond Loss - www.griefrecoverymethod.com)

A wonderful and comprehensive resource for all. Nanette Burton Mongelluzzo integrates her professional experience as a psychotherapist, strong research and a thorough understanding of the process of loss and grief in her book Understanding Loss and Grief. She provides a wealth of information of the emotional, physical and spiritual impact of loss, while offering direction and guidance regarding grieving. She addresses the relationship between loss, grief and trauma, and diligently informs the reader on healthy and unhealthy ways in which people grieve. This is a compassionately written, practical and extremely useful book for all of us, as we move through this remarkable journey called life.
