In Healing after Parent Loss in Childhood and Adolescence: Therapeutic Interventions and Theoretical Considerations, experts explore the varied, often complex, and always tragic circumstances under which young people face losing a parent. Profound grief and feelings of powerlessness may accompany loss of a parent at any age, but distinctly so when such loss is experienced during formative years. Whenever these individuals seek help, therapists must be psychically prepared to enter into arenas of trauma, bereavement, and mourning. The children, teens, and adults presented are diverse in age, culture/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. A diverse group of contributors showcase a wide range of effective approaches—from traditionally structured short- and long-term psychotherapies and psychoanalysis, to psycho-educational, supportive, and preventive interventions. The writers in this volume do not shy away from tough matters such as urban violence, AIDS, and war; they address concerns practicing clinicians face, such as when to work with children, adolescents, and adults individually, and when and how to involve their surviving parents and families. Included in this book are issues related to the self-care and professional development needs of therapists who take on this difficult but essential work, including peer support and supervision. This volume is likely to spark important re-examinations across all fields of mental health practice. It will equip and empower clinicians of all kinds who undertake work with those who are grieving. Healing after Parent Loss in Childhood and Adolescence promises to be a vital and stimulating read for supervisors, teachers, and trainers of child, adolescent, and family clinicians.

Grief is natural. But the way we deal with it in the 21st century isn't. Like so many artificial changes in our modern lifestyles, grieving has become all about treating the symptoms with harsh chemical prescription drugs and ineffective therapies. But when we grieve organically, by healing from the inside out, we neutralize the root causes of pain and suffering. Myths about death, dying and the other side are pervasive in our Western society. In reality, healing cellular-level memory from trauma and utilizing alternative therapies give us a balanced foundation from which to move forward. This book debunks Western myths and offers fresh information about easing pain and suffering after loss. It is transforming the way we approach grief so we can heal naturally, move forward, and honor the memories of departed loved ones from a place of peace.

If you have lost a loved one suddenly or traumatically, have experienced extreme trauma yourself, or simply cannot process the death of someone dear to you, the pain can be overwhelming. For most people, grief resolves on its own, given time; but for many others, grief can lead to serious psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, anger, and an intense, inconsolable yearning for the deceased. Prolonged or complicated grief is a serious psychological condition that can leave you feeling dazed, stunned, or in shock for months or even years after your loss. Your sorrow does not diminish with time. In fact, it may even increase. No matter how much support you receive from family and friends, you simply cannot “get over it.” However, there are steps you can take to begin healing. Mindfulness for Prolonged Grief offers you real tools for overcoming the painful symptoms of prolonged grief. In the book, you will learn to relieve your pain by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, improving the quality of your sleep, and reconnecting with your life’s goals. In addition, you will discover how mindfulness exercises and guided meditations can help you process your grief, manage your intense emotions, and deal with loss without resorting to avoidant behaviors (such as addiction) as coping mechanisms. Loss is an extremely painful part of life, but with help you can build the resilience you need to heal, and use your grief as a powerful vehicle for growth.

An extraordinary new mindful approach to healing after loss that taps into everyone’s ability to continue their relationship with those who have passed. “Marilyn’s vast and masterful experience in communicating with passed loved ones illustrate what they want to teach us.”—Betty Jampel, LCSW When Marilyn Kapp was two years old, she watched her grandfather leave his body. He told her he would be back and he was true to his word. When Marilyn realized that others did not share her perception of the spiritual plane, she kept her channeling abilities to herself and her family. This changed when, as a college student, she met writer, Holocaust survivor, and future Nobel laureate Elie Wiesel. He became her mentor and encouraged her to use her perception to help others. In Love Is Greater Than Pain, Marilyn shares her profound understanding of the afterlife. Today a renowned medium, Marilyn reveals the beauty in the transition from the physical to the spiritual plane, helping those who are dying, as well as those left behind. With personal stories and transcripts from channeling sessions, Marilyn teaches us how to interact with the afterlife and to joyfully embrace the reality that love truly is greater than pain. Marilyn shares universal messages of comfort, forgiveness, and understanding, including specific guidance for bereaved parents, for those dealing with dementia, and even for people who are grieving for their animal friends. Marilyn’s groundbreaking seminal work offers practical advice, clear takeaways, and a new approach to death, grieving, and living your best life, sharing concrete steps for: • Raising your personal vibration to increase health, joy, and the ability to receive channeled information and love. • Helping yourself and others honor life while grieving. • Understanding the parallel process of growth that we share with those who have passed. When we honor life as we grieve, we offer healing and support to one another, as well as conscious collaboration with those who have passed.

Meditations for Healing After Loss Walking in Grace with Grief, combines Della's story of loss with teachings of energy awareness, mindfulness, and conscious living. Filled with stories of hope and profound confidence in life after life, Walking in Grace with Grief includes many practical skills such as grounding to the earth and "filling in" with life-force energy. The easy to follow meditations provide comfort and nurturing for anyone dealing with loss. Message from the author: I offer my story to you as a way of reaching my hand out to yours. To touch you, to offer you comfort and presence. When I lost my loved one, I felt so many different things: shock, sadness, sorrow, and grace. I was more alive in some respects than I had ever felt before. I experienced sorrow; a deep, fathomless sadness; grief; love; acceptance; compassion; and happiness-yes happiness-all at once. I knew deep within my soul that my son's Spirit lived on. He had left his body, but he was alive as a Spirit. This profound acceptance and belief were the keys, I believe, to my ability to grieve in a different manner from many others. I want to share with you how I walked this path of sorrow and acceptance-not to tell you how you should do it, but to offer you thoughts on how to lessen the pain as you walk your path. Many blessings, Della
