Synopsis: Survivor's Guide to Grief: Meeting It, Managing It, Mastering It by Patricia Luce Chapman (2008) Grief is both astonishing and paralyzing. When we suddenly and unexpectedly lose a loved one, we feel pain physically, emotionally and mentally. The shock can be so severe that we are almost unable to function. In a vividly written narrative based on first-hand experience, newly bereaved survivors are led to meet, manage, and master their experience of sudden grief. Interspersed with helpful illustrations and even humor, the book contains practical information about how to navigate through the first year of loss, right down to estate administration and taxes. Special contributors include a medical doctor, a mother whose children committed suicide, a renowned grief therapist, and a terminal care nurse. Although survival without our loved ones may seem impossible, in the end we learn to be like a starfish and grow new legs .
