Losses, big and small, turn your world upside down. What’s Your Grief? will help you through all of them.
Many life changes need to be grieved, from the loss of a loved one to the loss of a job, from a breakup to a relocation, and all the rest of life’s ebbs and flows. In What’s Your Grief?, mental health professionals Eleanor Haley and Litsa Williams help you examine, investigate, and move through the complex but universal experience of grief.
Through seventy-five engaging, informative, and accessible lists, such as to-do (and not-to-do) lists, bucket lists, interactive lists, and more, you’ll discover:
• 5 Little-Known Truths About Grief
• 4 Reasons Guilt Is Even More Complicated Than You Think
• 9 Tips for Communicating What You Do (and Don’t) Need
• 7 Common Defense Mechanisms
• And much more
There’s no single way to experience grief. But this unique book will help you move through whatever it looks like and feels like to you.
“What’s your Grief? doesn’t just tackle grieving over death. It tackles grief, period. . . . For anyone who needs this kind of book, What’s Your Grief? is a win.”—Nationally syndicated columnist, Terri Schlichenmeyer

This is a wonderfully useful and instructive book, accessibly organized into (mostly) brief lists. The list structure helps keep the heavy content manageable. I found myself skipping between lists that resonated with me rather than reading each list word-by-word. This book sits in my mind next to Janine Kwoh's Welcome to the Grief Club. Kwoh's book is more accessible but packed with less science than this one. Haley and Williams impart their expert scientific knowledge, as well as their personal experiences with grief, making their book a rich and useful reference.
This is a wonderful book with a friendly and supportive tone. It's clear and gives information such as various grief theories in small bites easy to take in. Passages and even chapters are brief for those who don't want to read, or think or do griefwork, too much at once. The suggestions and lists are especially excellent for helping those who are having a problem working through their grief. Highly recommended!
THIS. IS. BRILLIANT!!
This has to be the best book I have read on grief. After the loss of my brother 10 years ago, and having therapy to deal with the loss, I have been told I have 'delayed grief' so it's something that I am still struggling with, and still wanting to find the answers to.
This book may not have all the answers but my goodness, it really helps!!
The way the book is laid out, is just perfect. It's full of information, but it's split into separate short chapters, with key lists/bullet points included to make it easy to manage. When you're feeling low, the last thing you want to do do is read - and the last thing you can do is read. So the layout of this book gives you the ability to still get the reading done.
Thoroughly recommend it!
