This book offers us a highly compelling and credible account of the human capacity to grow from the adversity of grief. It maps a sophisticated journey that can lead us from our most searing losses into unusual strength of character and conviction previously unknown to us. Both poignant and practical, this clearly written book provides solid, compassionate company for grievers and helpers alike.
— Gina O'Connell Higgins, Ed.D, author, Resilient Adults: Overcoming a Cruel Past
This book is like feeling the steady hand of a warm, compassionate friend who will walk with you through every step—all the way from surviving the agony of your loss, helping you cope, recovering, and eventually finding new meaning and purpose in your life.
— Al Siebert Ph.D., author of The Survivor Personality
In recent years, there has been a change from understanding the ways that individuals cope with grief to seeing the ways that grief changes people. In this wonderful book, Jozefowski offers sage advice and inspiration to both counselors and grieving persons that will help them grow even in the midst of loss.
— Kenneth Doka, Ph.D., author, Spirituality and Grief
This is an inspirational book for psychotherapists, physicians, clergy, and all of us who must learn to keep living when someone we love has died. Dr. Jozefowski teaches us that grief is not about letting go but making contact: with our loved one, emotions, self, community, values, and hopes. She and her patients show us that these connections can be transforming and, like the Phoenix, can permit one of our saddest moments to become an occasion for rebirth.
