Item Description...
Overview
This unusual self-help book about surviving grief offers the reader comfort and inspiration. Each of us will face some loss, sorrow and disappointment in our lives, and The Courage to Grieve provides the specific help we need to enable us to face our grief fully and to recover and grow from the experience. Although the book emphasizes the response to the death of a loved one, The Courage to Grieve can help with every kind of loss and grief. Judy Tatelbaum gives us a fresh look at understanding grief, showing us that grief is a natural, inevitable human experience, including all the unexpected, intense and uncomfortable emotions like sorrow, guilt, loneliness, resentment, confusion, or even the temporary loss of the will to live. The emphasis is to clarify and offer help, and the tone is spiritual, optimistic, creative and easy to understand. Judy Tatelbaum provides excellent advice on how to help oneself and others get through the immediate experience of death and the grief that follows, as well as how to understand the special grief of children. Particularly useful are the techniques for completing or "finishing" grief--counteracting the popular misconception that grief never ends. The Courage to Grieve shows us how to live life with the ultimate courage: not fearing death. This book is about so much more than death and grieving it is about life and joy and growth.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Too didactic and clinical to be truly comforting.  Feb 19, 2008
Whereas this books offers much detailed information on important aspects of grief and grieving, it somehow gets so lost in its pedantic style it forgets to offer the comfort that so many mourners seek when they read such a book. Although a Masters level social worker myself, I found the book a difficult read in its small print and wordiness. There also seems to a lack of emphasis at turning to the spirtual for comfort and support. There are not enough detailed examples of people who have lost loved ones and how they came to cope with these losses. Also philosophically I believe that if you love someone, there IS no "finishing" with that loss, that you simply have to learn to live with it. The book seems to imply that total finishing is possible and that I would debate. The author maintains that "finishing is acknowledging that the person is gone" and the the mourner knows that "I am not going to see you again." This can hardly be seen as comforting. Much better books that I would recommend for those are deeply grieving a lost loved one are the Kubler-Ross book On Grief and Grieving: Finding the Meaning of Grief Through the Five Stages of Loss and the Bob Deits book Life After Loss: A Practical Guide to Renewing Your Life After Experiencing Major Loss.
 
Grief is hard. This book can help.  Aug 14, 2007
My wife died when she was thirty-four. I know what grief feels like. I also know that there is help to heal the hurt. This book is one of those important helpers. Since we grieve in different ways, you may not agree with everything the author says. But what she says is extremely valuable. Even if you just get one comforting thought from this book, and there are many to select from, it is well worth reading.

Once you are ready to move on from your grief, you might want to also read The Courage to Laugh; Humor, Hope, and Healing in the Face of Death and Dying. (available on this site)
 
Finishing  Jul 22, 2007
I found this book helpful in the first part on grieving.
Then when it came to Finishing I found myself mostly in opposition to the author's stance.
I afterwards read "Transcending Loss" by Ashley Davis Prend who writes in her introduction :"There are many wonderful books available that address grief and how to cope with it. But these books focus on crisis management and imply there is an " end" to mourning.They essentially fail to address the issue of griefs ongoing impact, and how it changes through the years....Your grief will undoubtedly change over time, but it will never be "finished".
Judy Tatelbaum writes :"...The relationship is over". Ashley Davis Prend says :" Death doesn't end the relationship, it simply forges a new type of relationship - one base not on physical presence but on memory, spirit, and love."
The other missing ingredient in JT's book is any mention of spirituality.
This is given delicate and respectful attention in Transcending Loss.
I lost my husband of 38 years almost three months ago, and found this last book much more helpful.

 
Courage to Grieve  Mar 18, 2007
Some of the information was helpful. It points out all aspects of grieving. The book made me aware of the fact that I do have the courage to grieve due to the fact that I release all my emotions and do not suppress anything.

It is a book worth-while reading.
 
The Best Grief Book I've found  Aug 20, 2003
I read about 20 books on this subject after the sudden death of my young husband. I was looking for a road map to get through the shock and grief. This book was the only one that really helped me. It is an excellent, practical guide for those who have experienced a death of a loved one. Sudden death is especially traumatic and the book really helped me understand that what I was feeling and doing was perfectly normal. Good Luck.
