An inspiring companion for your journey through grief.
Grief is closely associated with death, but can be triggered when we lose anything with which we have an emotional connection.
Much that can be read about the grieving process is outdated and can serve an injustice to our rapidly evolving, modern society. In conjunction with recent medical and societal advancements, new and complex presentations of grief have arisen. As a result, our own journey through grief must also evolve in order for us to effectively heal and even flourish as a result of our experiences surrounding loss.
Delivering an eclectic blend of medical and spiritual observations and teachings, Good Grief: The A to Z Approach of Modern Day Grief Healing addresses life as well as death, and provides a practical guidebook for your unique grief journey. It goes beyond the conventional views that we are just a physical body, aiming to enlighten and encourage the reader to use the tools within the pages to bring about a collateral beauty that reveals great strength, personal growth, and spiritual emergence.
A Note From the Publisher
Shelley’s wise and compassionate words offer hope and courage, good feelings that are not often associated with grief. Her book written from the perspective of a former nursing career is an empowering, healing dose of essential self-help for all those who are grieving as well as anyone who has ever struggled to face their own mortality. - Theresa Cheung

Absolutely fascinating! The author has done an excellent job of combining much research on this topic as well as the topic of death and dying, from many different perspectives and levels. But the heart of this book, I believe, is the extensive section on suggested ways of being with one’s grief. If you are someone who has recently lost a loved one to death, you might want to go directly to the suggestions. If you are someone who is interested in the topic of death and dying and wants to learn more about the many different aspects of it, begin at the beginning. There is much detail here and much to learn and much to help us through any kind of a grief journey. When this is published, I will be purchasing a copy for my own bookshelf to use as reference and resource in the months and years to come. Thanks to NetGalley, the author and publisher for an advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
I've read a number of books on grief. I've learned and benefited from many of them. I wasn't sure if there was anything new on the subject. This book was wonderful. The author does an excellent job of identifying the different types of grief and of giving the reader ideas on how to cope. Some info I was familiar with and was pleased to find some new therapies.
After losing two important family members in the span of 5 months, I've delved deep into my many grief related books. This was an informative book about grief.
This is a really interesting read on life, death, and grieving. I liked how it began with a more black and white description of life and dying, because I find thinking about these things objectively to be more helpful. The In-Between States was much more spiritual and would be helpful in the grieving process. Finally, the Afterlife sections and Grief Voice Box offer different options for finding solace and working through grieving. I would recommend this
