Grief remains long-lasting and unresolved, and the death as painful as if it had happened yesterday. This book looks at how to cope with this kind of reaction to bereavement, so that it becomes possible to accept the death and master its impact. Topics include: The difference between 'normal' and 'complicated' grief Links with other conditions such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression Understanding the impact of grief How to manage related emotions such as anger and guilt Identifying unhelpful thinking Using memories and visual imagery positively Moving your loved one from your mind to your heart how to create a lasting memorial
